Summary: Different warriors have different ways to unwind.

“Oh, come on, T,” cajoled Jack. “You like football.”
“I do,” said Teal’c. “Your Vikings are most formidable.”
Jack beamed. The team was having a good year for once. He was glad Teal’c noticed.
“So why aren’t you coming?”
“I have a previous obligation,” answered Teal’c.
Jack snorted. “More important than football?”
“Indeed, O’Neill, for it a contest requiring much skill and strategy.”
“And football doesn’t?”
“Football is similar in that regard, but I cannot disappoint my teammate.”
“Teammate?” mumbled Jack, confused.
Just then, Walter Harriman came around the corner.
“Teal’c, Colonel,” he greeted.
Jack nodded. “Sergeant.”
Walter nodded back, then looked at Teal’c. “You ready to go?”
“I am,” answered Teal’c. “Good day, O’Neill.”
Jack shrugged. “Suit yourself,” he said, waving the pair off.
They disappeared quickly, leaving Jack wondering just what was going on.
But there was a game on, so instead of following them, he headed home.
As Jack sat down to watch the Vikings play the Bears a little while later, he shook his head at Teal’c’s actions.
Across town, as Walter and Teal’c sat down to their contest, they did the same at the notion of watching football somehow being more stimulating than playing bridge.
