I was tempted to try "Yes, the championship game is indeed this Saturday," but chickened out.
How do you say, "There is..."
For example, "Aia 'eono manakō"
I said, "Yes, indeed the championship game is this Saturday" but got it wrong. I guess "nō" is just telling the reader this is only an inflection.
I find sports to be boring, so this is a difficult lesson for me, because I care little for the subject matter.
