Go Time!

The entire 21-player U.S. Women's World Cup roster flew into Los Angeles today (except for the players who actually live in Southern California) to prepare for the final match of the 2007 Send-Off Series against Finland this Saturday, Aug. 25, at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. (That's a 6:30p.m. PT kickoff on ESPN2). Everyone seems to have gotten in ok, except for midfielder Marci Jobson whose plane was hit by a car. Come again? Apparently Jobson's plane was taxiing out to a runway at Chicago's O'Hare Airport when some sort of a vehicle clipped the plane's wing. Of course, they had to off-load the passengers and get another plane. We'll catch up with Marci for more details later. For almost all the players, they have brought their bags packed for China. After a week of training at The HDC and the final match against Finland, the players will have one day off to rest and regroup before leaving for the Far East on Monday. And the countdown to the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup begins.
