    Hi, Soup,

    Fisrt, thanks for your help.

    Yes. The script I get, just like you tell me, shows that T-Bag says-We gonna take the ball game to them real soon.

    But...Everytime I hear this sentence, I always get that T-Bag says-We gonna take the ball game to them now real soon. And it seems the word, "now", I hear pretty clearly. Since I am not native speaker, I just...
