接上篇:2014.06.24【英译中】如何享受足球比赛(1/3)


That’s how it started for me, and I haven’t stopped playing, watching, and loving soccer since. 

这就是我如何与足球结缘的经过,并且自那时起,我从未停止过踢足球、看足球、爱足球。

But that’s just me—oh, and about a gazillion other people around the world, and even one or two hundred in the United States. 
不过这只是我——哦,还有世界各地许许多多其他的人,甚至美国也有一两百人。

That’s a joke. 
开个玩笑。

Despite the running gag that “Americans hate soccer,” there are plenty of soccer fans in America, and most of us don’t care whether you want to join us or not. 
尽管常有这样的玩笑话:“美国人讨厌足球”,在美国仍有很多球迷。而我们中大部分人都无所谓你们想不想加入。

Just don’t tell us that soccer is boring because, believe it or not, that’s not a very interesting thing to say. 
只是千万别对我们说足球很无聊,不管你信不信,这真不是什么很好听的话。

For the rest of you, the interested and interesting folks out there who might not know much about the game but want to enjoy it a little more during this World Cup, here are a few tips.
对于其他的那些感兴趣又有意思的人们——可能不太懂球赛却想享受这次世界杯的你们,这里给大家一些建议。

Pick a team.
选一支球队

Life’s more fun when you have a dog in the race, so make a bracket. 
当你有自己的选手在比赛中时生活会变得更有意思,因此选定一些。

Place a friendly bet. 
下一点无伤大雅的赌注。

Pick a team to go all the way, or just choose your side match to match. 
挑一个队伍从头追到尾,或者每场比赛都选择支持一方。

I like rooting for the underdog. 
我喜欢为弱队加油喝彩。

Don’t know who the underdog is? 
不知道哪个队是弱队?

America from here on out is an underdog.
从现在起美国队就是个弱队。

Do the minimal research.
做一点点调查

You are just five minutes on the Internet away from understanding the offside rule and how it affects the game. 

你只要在网上花5分钟就能了解越位的规则以及越位会怎样影响比赛。


That’s the only tricky one. 

这是唯一一个复杂点的。

Another five minutes and you’ll know the next matchups, which teams are favorites, who has injuries, and even what their girlfriends look like if that’s your bag.
再花个5分钟你就能知道接下来的比赛,哪个队伍有希望获胜、谁带伤,如果你感兴趣甚至能知道他们的女友长什么样。

Don’t be a ball watcher.
不要光盯着球看

If two players are a leg’s length from the ball, there are twenty others playing the game elsewhere on the field, and everything they do affects everything else. 
如果有两个队员离球只有一步之遥,那么还有其他二十个人正处在球场的其他地方。他们所做的一切都会影响全局。

Soccer is a complex, ever-flowing chess game with running. 
足球是一盘复杂的,一直在跑动的国际象棋。

Get into it. 
深入其中。

See how the movements of a player’s teammates give him passing opportunities or open up new space for him to dribble. 
观察队友们是怎样移动来让一个球员过人或是为他制造新的运球空间的。

What choices does he make? 
他做了怎样的选择?

On defense, notice how the positioning of a single player a couple yards in any direction changes the team’s defensive “shape” and either closes down space or opens it up.

防守时,留心通过将单个球员的位置往某个方向移动几米是如何改变队伍防守阵型的——是将空间缩小了还是扩大了。


未完待续...(o(╯□╰)o世界杯都快完了我这篇还没翻完...真是...)
