Y: Umm, 今天我们这里怎么来了一只chicken?

P: I'm not a chicken, Yang Chen. I'm a rooster.

Y: Okay, so you are a rooster. 那你今天为什么装扮成一只公鸡呢?

P: I've been asked to be the mascot at my friend's baseball game. His team is called the "Roosters."

Y: 这个棒球队也是,为什么叫"Roosters."

P A mascot can be any animal, person or even a clown.

Y: 小丑也可以作吉祥物。

P: A Mascot represents a team, brings the team luck and sometimes acts as a cheerleader for the team.

Y: 可我还是想作一个可爱的mascot, not a rooster.


P: Well, I'll be wearing this rooster costume the whole time and I'll mostly run around the field doing crazy stunts.

Y: 那你都有什么疯狂的举动呢?

P: Like dancing and jumping.

Y: Patrick, You look pretty funny。I can't wait to see you running around, doing crazy stunts in your rooster costume.

PW: Well, that's the point, Yang Chen. The point of being a mascot is to make the audience laugh and have fun and feel good about the team they are rooting for.

Y: Will you get hot in this costume?

PW: You bet I'll Yang Chen. Especially under all of those stadium lights.

Y: Well, Patrick, take some advice from me, make sure you drink lots of water.

P: Thanks again, Mother. I will.
