Lori Chalupny waves goodbye to Shanghai.
The U.S. team traveled this morning from Shanghai to Beijing and it was a tired bunch after a late night of lightning delays and overtime. Still, tired and happy to be moving on to the semifinals beats tired and anything else, any day of the week. The two-hour flight was a smooth one and the team arrived in Beijing with a bit more pep in their step before heading to the Athlete's Village. It's the team's first day in the Village during the Olympics and we hear they are having fun, but the WNT Blog is not staying there so we'll have to get some reports from the players tomorrow. We do hear that the food is great and the vibe is fun.
