A Hot Fudge Fairytale

Once upon a time, actually at 8:16 p.m. China time tonight, four U.S. Olympians emerged from the elevator on the team floor of the hotel. They carried bags filled with the most wonderful of things. U.S. captain Christie Rampone, Natasha Kai, Aly Wagner and Shannon Boxx summoned their teammates from the rooms. "Come on out," they said. "Team meeting in the hallway...and hurry!" Alas, most of the players had settled in for the evening, but Rampone's loyal compatriots slowly emerged from their dens with sleepy eyes and curious expressions. What could possibly be important enough to call for the pausing of their DVDs, the putting down of their books and extracting of their iPod ear buds? "We have brought treats!" said the magnanimous Rampone, as she reached into the brown bags. Lo and behold, the quartet had visited McDonald's, and inside the bags were piles of vanilla ice cream sundaes with hot fudge! The players rejoiced! There was ice cream for all! With hugs given out, high-fives administered, and smiles on their faces, the ice cream slurping players filed back to their rooms to retire for the night. And all the players were happy. The End.
