Hungry after the flight, but always a giving person, Lindsay Tarpley offers some trail mix to her teammates. Perhaps Tarp did not partake in the noodles with pork or steamed rice with beef that were offered on the plane? (The noodles were excellent).
The U.S. team had a surprise guest at the airport in Shenyang. As the "team kids" are not traveling with the USA during the Olympics (they are with their dads), and it's difficult to get the friends and family into the hotels for security reasons, the USA's "Rylie Rampone time" has been limited. But the players got a good dose in Shenyang before they boarded their flight to Shanghai. You might be able to keep Rylie Rampone out of a hotel, but never an airport check-in area.
