    throw/toss your hat in the ring (American & Australian)to do something that makes it clear you want to compete with other people, especially to compete for a political position She's seriously considering throwing her hat in the ring and declaring herself a candidate for the election.

    19世紀初期,在美國拳擊賽場旁看打鬥的年輕人,若是自己想要進入場內一展身手,就把帽子丟進場內。可能是因為場外人聲沸騰,光靠嘴巴喊叫沒有用 -- 把帽子丟進場內,大家就知道你要加入戰局了:-)

    You need to get a hat. It's status. It's fashion. It's your ticket to get in a fight. Get a red hat, that'll show them you're serious about the fight, and will show no mercy.

    Get a big hat, so if you need to collect money, you are already ahead of the game.

    What if I don't have a hat? Can I throw in my towel? Or may be a napkin?
