Trash Talking

Trash Talking

課程

My brother and I went to the Yankees vs. Red Sox game last Tuesday. I have to say, there was a lot of trash talking at the game. I heard a lot of Yankee fans shout things like "Red Sox suck," or "go home Red Sox fans." Even though there were not nearly as many Red Sox fans they could certainly dish it out as well.  It helped that the Red Sox crushed the Yankees 7-3. We even saw one fan spit on another fan. If it were the Mariners or the A's or something it might not have been so heated. But the Yankees and Red Sox have a rivalry that goes back a long way.

    Thank you for giving us such a good and useful article! It is authentic and easy to understand having some colorful sentences and words.'heated and dish out' are good words for me!     

     It is about how they do when the audience watching the baseball games.Of course saying trash talk is sounding not impolite,but I think it is no mind,everyhting they do is just for cheering on their home team ,not intentionally offend guests. Remember it is just a game!

      Anyway I learn a lot from you job.Thanks again!

    Great job! Keep doing!
