It's Raining

It started raining today in the morning in Shenyang and it didn't really let up until the evening. The U.S. team had a short training in a steady downpour on the practice field outside the stadium as organizers understandably didn't let any of the four teams here practice on the game field. The pitch is quite water-logged and was not in the best condition before the two men's matches yesterday, so the field conditions could be questionable for the USA-New Zealand match, especially as rain is forecast to come down all during the night and all day tomorrow. You think that would cool things down? Nope. Temps are forecast for the low 80s. So, that is what the Amazonian rain forest feels like. Still, both teams have to play in those conditions and the U.S. team has never shied away from a little muddin'.
