  1. There is historical evidence that socks were in use by ancient Egypt and the Romans. The first evidence of socks and sandals being used together was by Roman legionaries.

    One of the holy relics in the middle ages was of Jesus’s sandals. Don’t know if there was such a thing as holy socks. Though mother Teresa was known to wear socks and sandals. That’s the extent of my knowledge.

    On another note, what is this about an York 9 affiliate club in Egypt? https://northerntribune.ca/york9-fc-egypt-imposter-club/

  3. There is historical evidence that both ancient Egypt and the Romans had socks. It was the Roman legionaires that combined sandals and socks. During the middle ages when holy relics were displayed, this included Jesus’s sandals in Germany. Not aware if holy socks were included. That is the extent of my knowledge.

      • I think I stumbled on something big…

        Pull the loose thread on the sock and don’t stop untill the bare truth is left bare. Unravel the mystery and connect the lines together to form a complex matrix. The conspiracy is so wide, so deep, that it will be a hard pill to swallow. Wake up sheeple! You have been blinded by the lies from the illuminati, put on the sunglasses and look again at the signs to glance at reality.

        I will break it down for you. Marty, you’re not thinking fourth dimensionally.

        You expect me to believe that an imposter team was created a mere season after York 9 came into existence? It took decades for teams like Real Madrid and Manchester United to get fake affiliated teams. And in Egypt of all places.What if I told you this…York 9 Cairo is not an imposter…. because it predates York 9 by over 2000 years!

        We all know that the beloved mascot Yorky came from the future. He is clearly a timelord who has mastered time and space. Their were rumours of a stargate somewhere near the Giza pyramids just outside of Cairo. Yorky must of ventured through to the age of pharaohs, and brought soccer and socks to the masses. You see the word socks is originally derived from an ancient Latin word. Did Yorkie bring socks and soccer to the Romans also?

        I am sure there are artifacts hidden that confirm this theory. Perhaps near the Sphinx. Unless of course they have been excavated and kept locked away in a secret military base, with other sacred artifacts like the arc of covenant. Could Yorkie’s head be safeguarded their also?

        Those with the gears of power are trying to erase all evidence of Yorky . Rebranding and killing off poor Yorkiy. But he can’t be terminated so easily. He will be back. You might kill his body but you can’t kill his spirit. Hashtag never forget, Yorkie4ever.

        I fear I have said too much already. The men in black will soon come and erase my memories…
