Say Cheese!

There is no shortage of helpful volunteers here in China for the 2008 Olympics. They are everywhere, smiling, friendly and dying to help you do something, anything. It seems that every one of them also wants an autograph from the U.S. players and a picture with them. Today at practice, the team obliged everyone working at the training site all in one pop (see above). By the way, today was the most beautiful day yet in China for the U.S. team. Blue skies, a nice ocean breeze and lots of sun. It was once again really hot, though. In the mid-80s at least, but since the USA's games are in the evening and later afternoon, it should be that bad for the matches. The team had an excellent training session and will have tomorrow (Sunday) off. The team is planning a trip to the part of the Great Wall that is just 20 minutes away from the team hotel. The excursion was cancelled a few days ago due to rain, but tomorrow she be perfect for another visit to (a much smaller part) of the Great Wall of China.
