体育美语022讲 不被看好的选手 - Underdog



Y: Patrick, 你为什么要换频道?

P: Well, I want to watch the women's final of the US Open.

Y: 美国网球公开赛,I think you like the female tennis players.

P: No. I just love the athletic competition. The short skirts are a bonus.

Y: So which player are we cheering for ?

P: You can also say which player are we rooting for.

Y. Rooting for 也是给哪一个运动员加油的意思。

P: Well, you know me, Yang Chen. I always love to cheer for or root for the underdog.

Y: Underdog? Like a dog?

P: Actually, underdog is the player or team that isn't expected to win.

Y: Underdog 就是处于弱势,不被看好的选手 。 Well, underdog可不可以用在别的地方?

P: Sure. For example, I would love to date a famous female tennis player. But with all the rich guys and movie stars chasing her, a regular guy like me would definitely be the underdog in the group.

Y: Oh come on. 你有great personality. 她一定会爱上你。

P: Do you really mean it?

Y: HA! Of course not.

P: You mean it's a pipe dream? Wishful thinking?

Y: 你简直是白日做梦。

P: Would you ever miss a chance to humiliate me?
