It’s Sunday before the new NFL season, so of course today’s teaser is about Football. What’s a fan to do, far from the ‘States, with no TV coverage at his home? It’s adventure time, seeking a Paris bar to watch, drink and shout. The game is just a backdrop for our fan’s individual anxiety. It’s his own personal Heidi game.
Chapter eight of French License also touches on Halloween and Thanksgiving. Fall is the loneliest season for an American boy in France.
This chapter also has funny animal noises, words that don’t exist in English, and cross-cultural catastrophes in communication.
