Back to Work


The U.S. team hit the field late this afternoon after having all of Friday off and most of Saturday. The day and half break from training couldn’t have come at a better time, not only because the players had worked extremely hard last week, but the weather in Los Angeles was spectacular. Winter in LA: We love it. Most of the players took full advantage of the day, finding numerous ways of “Chill-axing” (that’s chillin’ and relaxing), including going to the beach, spending time with boyfriends, kids and husbands, eating good meals out and basically just decompressing. The players who hadn’t yet run the Beep Test this year did so before training this afternoon, with Kate Markgraf outlasting the group and looking like her comeback from injuries is just about complete. The 26 players currently in camp will be divided into two groups tomorrow to play scrimmages in the morning and afternoon and the second week of training kicks into high gear.

It's so exciting to hear about the WNT and the new vision that is evolving. What the fans need is more PR- more pictures, more articles, more video. The MNT has some great coverage, let's get that for the women too. How can we make that happen???

I love the WNT and can't wait to watch more soccer! I just wish there were more games in my area that I could go to. Good luck in '08!
