    Coach Lasso,

    I can assure you that my transfer has nothing to do with your club's relegation, nor is there anything that Richmond has done in error. Rather, I have spoken with my editors and we’ve agreed that this is the most appropriate course of action.

    I wish you all the best in the season.

    Summary

    “Ted,” he says, mouth dry.

    “Trent,” says Ted.

    “Is this a date?” says Trent stupidly.

    “Trent Crimm, bringing that heat.” Ted still hasn’t withdrawn his hand.

    They’re standing in the street outside Ted’s flat where any tosser in Richmond could gawk at them. Trent hasn’t blanked so hard since his first press conference at Man United, where Alex Ferguson insulted his hair. His mouth, trained by years of journalistic habit, says on autopilot: “Follow-up question.”

     

    In 48 hours, Trent Crimm lands a scoop, implodes his career and makes some drastic life decisions. And then there's the aftermath. And Ted, of course.

    Summary

    Trent doesn’t realize as he’s writing the article. He writes and deletes, writes and deletes, and deletes, and deletes, and writes, and doesn’t ask himself why this article is any harder than the hundreds (thousands) he’s written over a long and hard-fought career. He swears at himself plenty when he picks up the phone and texts Coach Ted Lasso (America) and divulges his source — Trent does respect him, after all, and the poor man doesn’t need to be wondering which of his inner circle betrayed him — but he doesn’t realize.

    Summary

    The first thing Ted thinks, when he sees the guy leaning proprietarily up against the door to their bus, is that he’s got a goddamn beautiful head of hair. The dark, soft-looking fall of it over his face makes Ted’s fingers itch and his stomach roll over in pleasant ways.

    The second thing he thinks is: Crap, that’s Trent Crimm, from Independent.

    or-

    Ted & Trent's bands go on tour together and stuff happens.
