Métier

Andrew hated being on the road. Yet another generic hotel room you couldn't swing a cat in and a bathroom with a temperamental shower.

He could feel the depression that came from too much alcohol creeping over him and, as he couldn't sleep it off on the rock-like beds, he opted to channel surf. Cycling through news, weather and bad movies, he discovered a game of football with arcane scoring, weird goal posts and men that dressed in tank tops and hot pants.

Settling back to watch, Andrew smiled as he recalled Giles telling him that travel broadened the mind.

Hee -- I've never imagined Andrew watching sports much at all, so I guess I'm not surprised that this particular one was unfamiliar to him.

I don't think it's the sport so much as the uniform that caught his attention.

the uniform, not the sport
Kind of like me and cheerleaders -- got it.

Andrew needs a camper. Then he can choose what kind of mattress to sleep on.

*dons editing hat*

No comma after 'yet' in the first paragraph. Also, 'arcane scored' doesn't make sense. Perhaps 'arcane scoring rules' would work better?

*removes hat*

I don't think that's quite what Giles meant, but I like the interpretation! :-)

::sigh:: Considering the manipulation this got, I'm surprised I didn't leave more weird editing artefacts. Thanks.

Aussie Rules that's the one with organised male groping isn't it? He'll love it!

It is Australian Rules, but I thought organised male groping was hard wired into all forms of football.

:D But normally not quite so "below the belt"

I have to agree that it probably wasn't quite the intent Giles intended.
