045 冰球 - Hockey

Y: 今天我和Marc, Patrick一起看冰球比赛。 M: Thanks for inviting me to this hockey game Yang Chen. P: Yeh. How did you ever get tickets to the Stanley Cup? Y: Well, I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you. M: Never mind, I don't want to know that bad. But I'm surprised that you are a hockey fan. Y: I'm not exactly a hockey fan. 我其实不太懂冰球。 M: Oh, I think you are just being modest. P: Believe me. She is not being modest. Look! Our team just scored! Y: 为什么每个人都往冰场扔帽子? M: Because that player just scored a hat-trick. Y: Hat-trick? 有人变魔术? M: There is no magician. It means one player scores three goals in one game. When that happens, everybody throws their hat on the ice. Y: 噢,有一个队员进三个球,我们就说他scored a hat-trick。 Quick, give me your hat! I'm going to throw it. P: No way! Throw your own. M: OK. You can have mine. Y: I have another question. 刚才一个队有五个队员,另一个队有四个。太不公平了。 M: That's because the first team was on a power play. Y: What is a power play? M: If a player breaks a rule, he has to sit in the penalty box. So the other team has an extra player and is on a power play. Y: 犯规的队员要坐到受罚席,另一个队就是on a power play, 比对方多一个人,所以实力更强。 I have another question. M: Yang Chen, now I realize you really know very little about hockey. P: She knows very little about any sport. Y: That's not true. I can play Mahjong. P: Like I said, you don't know anything about any sports, because Mahjong isn't a sport.
