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?
