YC: Umm, 今天我们这里怎么来了一只chicken？
PW: I'm not a chicken, Yang Chen. I'm a rooster.
YC: Okay, so you are a rooster. 那你今天为什么装扮成一只公鸡呢？
PW: I've been asked to be the mascot at my friend's baseball game. His team is called the "Roosters."
P It's OK, A mascot can be any animal, person or even a clown.
P A Mascot M-A-S-C-O-T represents a team, brings the team luck and sometimes acts as a cheerleader for the team. So, since my friend's team is called the "Roosters" - the mascot is a big, colorful Rooster. That's me.
YC: 看来mascot还真是重要，既能代表这个球队，给球队加油， 还能给球队带来好运。可我还是想作一个可爱的mascot， not a rooster.
PW: But I really want to see you in the rooster costume, do you want to try it on?
Y: No way, not in a million years.
PW: Well, I'll be wearing this rooster costume the whole time.
Y: The whole time? 你一直都要穿着这身衣服？
P: Yeah, and I'll mostly run around the field doing crazy stunts. Stunts, s-T-U-N-T-S. Audiences really like it when the mascot acts totally crazy.
Y: Crazy stunts，那你都有什么疯狂的举动呢？
P: Like dancing and jumping.
Y: Patrick, You look pretty funny。我今天得去看你朋友的棒球队比赛。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.
PW: You bet, Yang Chen. Especially under all of those stadium lights.
YC: 没错球场了灯光一照，那就更热了。Well, Patrick, 你要听我的话 - drink lots of water.
PW: Thanks, Mom. I will.
YC: Good boy. And good mascot.
PW: Oh please. Well, I'm off to the game.
YC: Wait. Let me take a picture of you in your funny rooster costume first.
