Go Carp, Go!

(Noisy Stadium Sound)

Both: (the Cheer song) Carp, Carp, Carp Hiroshima, Hiroshima Carp

M: Oh, this is so fun! Thanks for inviting me, Tomoka. My first Carp game ever in person! I didn't think that the fans would be so crazy.

W: Hey, this is normal! Carp games are really intense!

M: Yeah! Um, who's your favorite player, Tomoka?

W: My favorite players are Tanaka, Kikuchi, Maru, and Suzuki!

M: Ha ha! That's a lot. Who's your MOST favorite?

W: Um… I love 'em all, but I guess I love Suzuki the most! Oh! Suzuki's stepping up to the plate now! Wohoo!

M: Yeah, but we're pretty far out here in right field. It's kind of hard to see. Here, you can use my binoculars.

(later)

M: Tomoka… here's your Carp udon. Ha ha. It's funny that even the food being sold here is about the Carp!

W: Yeah, and almost everyone's wearing their favorite player's jersey. Mine's 51, of course. That's Suzuki's number.

M: Oh, I should get one too. But they're SO expensive!

W: Yeah… Hey, who do you like right now?

M: I think Johnson's pretty cool. And besides, we're both American! Ha ha!

W: Yeah, I like him a lot too. Hey, this Carp udon tastes great! How's that Carp takoyaki?

M: It's really good. (Sound of a ball hit by a bat) Hey, Tomoka look! The ball's coming this way. Let's get out of here!

W: No way! I'm gonna catch this ball! Get out of here, Daniel! (Pushing Daniel to the side)

M: Ah!!!

W: Ah! I got it! I got a home run ball!

M: Way to go, Tomoka! A home run ball! And thanks for pushing me out of the way! But I got takoyaki all over me!
