It would be great to give out more additional football/soccer terms per posts by tgarran and euphonies. Watching the matches on CCTV 5, a supplemnetal vocab will help understand the mandarin speaking commentatorsfor better learning and enjoyment! Go USA!

is the use of 美女 to young ladies considered flirting or a derogatory remark? Perhaps a compliment also for women past middle age?

Great comments to help enjoy watching basketball on CCTV. Now I can try to understand some of what the announcers are saying.

Could you guys at Cpod do a lesson for golf terms? I'd like to know more terms than "jin."

In Hong Kong and Cantonese restaurants in SoCal, there is "e lai cha," milk tea served with a side cuplet of honey. Stir in the honey to your taste.

I just returned to the US after traveling 30 days in South China. In Haikou, I took a taxi to the hotel and the driver gave me a RMB $50 bill for change. I tried to pay for things three times at three different shops and restaurants with the $50 bill and every time the clerk would look at the bill and say it was fake. I compared the bill to a real $50 bill and cannot tell the difference per the references above. Now I will ask for $20 bills for change rather than taking a $50 bill.
