Shi Mingjin, known as the Left Cup. Traffic police, football critic, referee, advisory committee member of Taipei Football Development Association, honorary chairman of Taiwan Football Development Association. He once published the magazine "Football Doctrine", devoted himself to the promotion of football and paid attention to social reform and equal rights issues. He often criticized current affairs on social media, breaking Taiwanese stereotypes about the police. Since 1982, I started watching the World Cup football matches. In the early days, there were not many live events, and the broadcasting technology was not advanced. I saw two teams of 22 players and the referee running around like villains on the TV screen. Knowing who passed the ball to whom, only the forward who scored the goal and the goalkeeper who was scored have more close-ups, and it is impossible to appreciate the beautiful skills of the players, which makes many people fall asleep after watching a football match for five minutes. In the 2014 World Cup, I began to pay attention to Shi Mingjin, a football commentator nicknamed "Zuo Cup". He explained the rules and tactics of the game clearly Banner Design and understandably, and his words were humorous and flexible. As long as I turned on the TV and found that it was broadcast by the Zuo Cup, even in the middle of the night I watch the game with relish. Zuo Cup has a lot of backgrounds on the growth of players. Listening to him telling stories and insider stories, you will think that some players are grown up by him, or doubt whether he is the behind-the-scenes sponsor of certain teams. Sometimes I see him with dark circles under his eyes, hair and tie a little messed up, as if he had just arrived from somewhere, but at the beginning of the game, he was full of energy and witty words. Later, I learned that he was a traffic policeman, and I saw his sharp and humorous comments on current affairs at home and abroad on Facebook. It was beyond my imagination of the "Police Cup". In 2022, after 32 years, the Taiwanese women's football team finally has a chance to enter the World Cup. When they advanced to the key match, they lost to Vietnam by one goal. Shi Mingjin immediately posted on Facebook: "With your light, we can only dream. .” He encouraged and comforted everyone in the low mood of losing with just a few words. Empathize with the player's situation and see the main points of things in life. The Left Cup is not just a commentary.
