Taiwan Lightning - Chien-ming Wang

Taiwan Lightning - Chien-ming Wang

台灣英語網1.0 » 週二 9月 15, 2015 2:10 am

In today’s game, the commentator had more than once called Wang “Taiwan lightning.” Other than “soft-talking freak,” “super-quiet Wang,” “Cy-Wang” and “Ace,” this is new and interesting. I wonder if it will become Wang’s nickname. “Taiwan” is also mentioned a couple of times in this nationally broadcasted game—publicity our government failed to achieve after spending a helluva lot of tax payer’s money.


tax payer's -> tax payers'

我們這兩天還多了一個台灣麻將之光余筱萍。她在澳門獲得了世界麻將大賽第三名。

The New York Times:

At last check, the Minnesota Twins, who will play the Mets tonight in the opener of a 10-game homestand at Shea Stadium, do not have a Taiwanese pitcher. The Mets must be pleased about that. They have faced two Taiwanese pitchers in the last five games, in Wang and the Dodgers’ Hong-Chih Kuo, scoring a total of three runs and losing both times.

LOL!

It is a strange feeling: I am a Yankees and Mets fan and I am a Taiwanese.

Ah, yes, I have read that news too. If my memory serves me right, she is the first one to have won that prize. However, I find it hard to connect such achievement with the pride of Taiwan. I may be old-school, but, unlike bridge, mahjong is gamble in Taiwan, isn't it?
