Well, while that was no way to start the Olympics, today we are happy to report that the players are in good spirits. While the post-game mood last night was certainly and understandably somber, a good night's sleep can do wonders. The starters, plus Stephanie Cox and Amy Rodriguez, who played a lot of minutes, did not train today. For them, it was a light workout in the gym and/or pool. Tomorrow afternoon the team hits the field again to make final preparations for the Japan game on Saturday. The USA will play the earlier game on Aug. 9 (sorry to those on the West Coast) and a win is vital. Know this: No one is panicking in the U.S. camp. Yes, the road just got tougher, but everyone knows that wins in the last two games and six points guarantees advancement to the quarterfinals. A big challenge, but isn't the Olympics about challenges?
