Todd: OK. Kevin, we're back here in the forest. Um, we're gonna talk about sports.
Kevin: OK. Great. I love sports.
Todd: What sports do you like?
Kevin: Well, my favorite sport is baseball, obviously I grew up and my father was a baseball player, so I was always around baseball.
Kevin: My whole life.
Todd: You mean your father was a player in the Major Leagues?
Kevin: Yeah, exactly, and not only was he a player in the Major Leagues, he was fortunate enough to play in the World Series twice with the New York Mets.
Todd: Wow. That's amazing.!
Kevin: Yeah, The Amazing Mets. 1969.
Todd: Wow, that's great. Did you play baseball yourself?
Kevin: Yeah, I played baseball pretty much my whole life up through college and university.
Todd: OK. Why did you stop?
Kevin: Well, it wasn't exactly by choice. I wasn't drafted high enough in professional baseball to... in order for me to sign, so I ended up retiring from baseball and pursuing other things.
Todd: OK. Great. Do you like any others sports?
Kevin: Yeah. I actually, I enjoy all competition. You know I enjoy the other typical American sports of basketball and American football and so on, but I also try to learn about and enjoy the national sport of the countries that I'm in. For example, now I'm in Japan and I've actually gotten quite into Sumo wrestling.
Todd: Oh, really?
Todd: Nice. Have you ever seen a sumo match live?
Kevin: Yes, I have. I've been to two sumo, uh, bashos as they call them, or matches in Tokyo.
Todd: Nice. Yeah, I wanna go, I wanna go myself.
Kevin: Yeah! Let's go sometime.
Todd: OK. Let's do it.
