Midfielder to Model

If you followed the Peace Queen Cup in 2006, you know Leslie Osborne participated in a runway fashion show by famed Korean designer André Kim. Well, the Peace Cup is back and so is André Kim (See right). Once again a player from each team participating in the tournament will grace the runway wearing dresses designed by Mr. Kim, a 73-year-old fashion icon in Asia who is predominently known for his evening gown and wedding gown collections. Kim's designs are said to "combine classical designs with futuristic elements," often resulting in distinctive designs with bold, rich colors and motifs of Asiatic patterns, often of large roses, birds, or tree branches. The USA's model this year? Angela Hucles. You see, in addition to looking great in an evening gown, Angela is what you would call "funny" which means we are in store for some great all_access video. (Don't mean to put any pressure on our videographer). At some point during the trip we'll have a video from tonight's fashion show. An added benefit this year is that the entire team will attend the show, meaning we'll get some feedback on Hucles' moves on the runway.

That's cool...there are pictures of it and more on the PQC official site...

Are the tournament games going to be on the internet or on TV anywhere? If not, will they be on MatchTracker?
