Day Off

Is this an “off day” or a “day off?”

From what the team has said, yesterday was an “off day” and today is a “day off.” Getting away from the ballpark will make everyone feel better. It should help get the hitters rolling and keep the bullpen fresh.

Tuesday will be the test, but fans on the downtown 2 train had no doubts this morning.

“They will get themselves turned around in Chicago,” said Barney from Hunts Point.

People who ride the trains early – before 7:00 a.m. – are believers and they never quit. They are tough and expect the same from their team.

“They can’t give up any more ground,” said Mahamadou from Highbridge. “They need to fight through every game and when it’s over they will be on top. I know how good this team is and now they need to show everyone else.”

“They’ve got a big run in them,” Barney chipped in. “It doesn’t matter who they’re playing because they are good enough to beat anyone.”

It starts after a day off.

Dear Todd,
I like how you use "off day" and "Day off" for this article.This is so great.You got talent on writing.This is for sure.I don't think I can do that even in Chinese.

I admire your mastery of languages. I want to perfect my Spanish, but haven’t done it yet. Chinese is probably way beyond my abilities, but I hope to give it a try someday.

Dear Todd,
Actually,I tried to learn Spanish when I was studying in California with my homestay.But,Spanish has totally different pronunciation as Chinese.Spanish has a lot of retroflexion which Chinese doesn't have that much.That's why it's so difficult for Chinese.Before I left,I only remember few easy vocabularies of Spanish.

If you want to try Chinese,please let me know anything I can help you.I would like to.
