Shanghai to Scranton

The USA has about a 20-30 minute drive to training every day, depending on traffic (and in Shanghai, “depending on traffic” is a major variable). Goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart and forward Heather O’Reilly used the ride today to watch an episode of the “The Office,” which synched almost perfectly with the drive. (O’Reilly has been powering through Season 2 this whole week on the drive to training). Barnhart is from Gilbertsville, Pa., only 75 miles from Dunder-Mifflin’s office in Scranton meaning she may stop by and visit Jim, Dwight, Pam and Michael when she gets home after the Women’s World Cup. Wait a minute…ok, someone just told us that Dunder-Miffling is not a real business, but just a TV show and those are just “characters.” Too bad…we were looking forward to hanging with Dwight at the beet farm.
