Daily Quote: mean relatives

Published by at 13:30 under Daily Quote

I saw this on the Guardian sport page and quite like the funny expression:

As this Milan side ages, visitors have become like relatives who look at the household belongings such as the Campions League and wonder how soon they might inherit them.

However, when I looked at the same article by Kevin McCarra on Guardian’s website, the sentence became:

It was as if they had come to the home of their ageing relatives and could not stop themselves from stealing a look at valuable belongings, such as Champions League silverware, that they might soon inherit.

Don’t know which is the early version though.
