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