Gipper

Let’s “Win one for the Gipper.”  This quote originates from astar American university football player in the early part of the 20thcentury.  The story goes that as he was dying, he told the coach to askthe football team to “win just one for the Gipper” as a means to inspirethem.  Later on in the 20th century, a young actor named Ronald Reaganused the quote in a movie about the young football star.  Finally, in apresidential bid, Ronald Reagan reused the quote to take the position ofPresident of the United States of America.  Today, people use this quoteto inspire sports teams to personalize the competition and its results.

吉佩尔

让我们“为吉佩尔赢一回”(Win one for the Gipper)这个引述来源于20世纪早期一个美国明星大学的足球运动员。故事是这样的:这个运动员快死了,他吩咐教练,要求足球队“为吉佩尔赢一回” (Win one for the Gipper),目的是为了鼓励他们。在之后的二十世纪,一个年轻演员在一部关于足球明星的电影中引用了这个表达。最后,在一次总统选举中,罗奈尔得·里根再次引用了这个句子,取得了美国总统的位子。今天人们用这个引述来激励运动队,使得竞赛和竞赛结果更加人性化。

Tommy the Tank

Tommy was a very competitive individual who had his sights set on a statehigh school wrestling championship from early on in his life.  WhenTommy finally made it to the state semifinals, he bested the adversary, butonly by a slight margin, and with serious collateral damage; Tommy had brokenhis right hand in the semifinal match, but hid the injury to complete thematch. Tommy knew that if he went to the hospital to have his hand treated, hewould have to forfeit the state wrestling championship finals match.  Wordgot around to his final rival that Tommy had broken his hand, but his rivaldidn’t know which one. In a feat of courage, Tommy had his left hand tapped upbefore the finals match.  Throughout the match, his competitor grabbed andtwisted his left hand trying to hurt Tommy.  All the while, Tommy’sinjured right hand remained intact long enough for Tommy to win the statechampionship and fulfill his dream.
