Y: Gosh, Patrick, this baseball game is taking forever.

P: Well, Yang Chen, a baseball game is nine innings long.

Y: 有9局。

P: Oh--It's the seventh inning already? All right! You get to experience the famous "seventh inning stretch," Yang Chen.

Y: Yayyyyyy. Patrick, What exactly is the "seventh inning stretch"?

P: It is a baseball tradition! Because baseball is such a long game, it lasts hours and hours.

Y: 如果碰上两个烂队,到第7局大概观众都要睡着了。

P: So during the seventh inning everyone stands up, stretches their legs and sings a song.

Y: 大家站起来,舒展一下身体,活动活动筋骨。Patrick, stand up. Stretch your legs.


Y: Oh, I've heard the song before - 带我去看棒球赛!

P: That's right. At least you know something about baseball.

Y: I know a lot about baseball.

P: Take me out to the Ball Game.

I've stretched my legs, did you stretch yours?

Y: Yes . I did.


这不是你唱得吧,I think it's Frank Sinatra.

P: But I do know the lyrics.

Come on, Yang Chen, sing it

(Patrick and Yang Chen sing together)

Y/P: Take me out to the Ball Game, Take me out to the Crowd; Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don't care if I never get back! Let's root, root, root for the home team, if they don't win it's a shame, for its one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game!

P: There! Don't you feel better now? I'm going to the snack bar. So would you like peanuts? Cracker Jacks?

Y: Just get me a beer.
