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!
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.
