Thanks Boys

Almost always when the U.S. team plays overseas, the local organizing committee provides a team liaison to help with the organization of logistics, translation and many other small tasks that need to be taken care of in order to smoothly run a team at a major tournament. The U.S. team scored on this trip to Korea. So we would be remiss if we didn't give a WNT Blog shout-out to our two fantastic team liaisons for the 2008 Peace Queen Cup, Weon (left) and Steve. The boys were tremendously organized, always helpful with everything the team needed, and did it all with a touch of humor, which is not easy when English is your second language. Weon recently finished college in the United States (Bridgeport in Conn. to be exact) and will be returning to the U.S. soon to attend law school. Steve, who studied English in Canada, is going to be an intern with Korea Football Association, but soon after will report for his mandatory 20-month stint in the Korean Army. So, thanks guys for all your hard work and for doing it with a smile. Job very well done.
