How Soccer/Football Explains the World

This is all I've been able to come up with so far for this month's prompts. Sorry it's so reliant on a knowledge of English soccer football, which necessitates the explanation of what's going on being longer than the content.

In brief, it's well-known (apparently) that most Manchester United fans don't live in Manchester. Also, until recently, you could pretty much guarantee that Man U would finish the season higher in the league than Manchester City, the rival team in the locality. No longer.

Setting: Up a mountain in Tibet
Rating: G
For the prompt: Snow lion.
100 words
Author's note: apologies for utter feebleness. I blame the dust. :Cough:

How Soccer Football Explains the World




Buffy ducked, as another huge rock sailed overhead. Icicles rained down, puncturing the snow like arrows.

High on the mountainside, a huge, white, green-maned feline shape leapt from one pinnacle of rock to another, roaring in fury.

Buffy consulted her book of Tibetan folklore.

"Says here snow lions represent unconditional cheerfulness." She glared at Spike. "Things were going great. You two were bonding over Manchester United. Then suddenly...whammo! Total mayhem. What the hell did you say to it? "

Spike gave her a look of injured innocence.

"How was I to know it hadn't heard City won the league yet?"

Because the Manchester City and the Manchester United are two different teams, right? I don't know much about soccer, but I think that I understood the reference this time. LOL

Yes, two teams based in the same city, so naturally their fans hate each other. ;)
