Lilly on MNF

U.S. captain Kristine Lilly took a short excursion to the historic Jinli Street in Chengdu today to shoot an interview for ESPN. It is scheduled to air at halftime of the second of two Monday Night Football games on Sept. 10, featuring Arizona at San Francisco, about nine hours before the USA kicks off its Women’s World Cup against North Korea in Chengdu. Dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC), in ancient times Jinli Street was one of the busiest commercial boulevards in the Kingdom of Shu. Renovations on the street were completed in 2004 and it has managed to retain iconic old China mixed with vibrant new shops, restaurants and vendor kiosks.
