Friends and Family Reception

The U.S. Friends and Family who are in China had a reception tonight at the U.S. team hotel, and while not all the parents are here yet, it was an enjoyable affair as the players and their loves ones spent about two hours hanging out in a beautifully decorated ballroom. Highlights of the evening included a few songs from Natasha Kai’s father Benny, a professional singer back in Hawaii who certainly has some golden pipes, as well as dance routine from the group of players who have been taking Hip-Hop 101 from Natasha herself. (If you saw the all_access video from the shopping excursion to Jinli Road, you got a sneak peak). Both performances finished to loud applause and it was a nice break for the players before they buckle down to focus on the Nigeria match.

I think it's awesome that the players' families were able to come to China; I'm sure it is a great morale booster. Hey it would be GREAT to see a video of their whole hip hop routine!

I couldn't help but laugh at the hip-hop dance you girls did over at Jinli street! It was hilarious!
