Visit to the MPC

In the afternoon, four players (Christie Rampone, Kate Markgraf, Heather O'Reilly and Amy Rodriguez) and head coach Pia Sundhage took a short trip from the Olympic Village to the massive Main Press Center for a fairly well-attended press conference (hey, we're not Michael Phelps, but there was a pretty good turnout), where they talked about the Olympic tournament so far, facing Japan in the semifinal and overcoming the interesting adversity the team has faced the past few weeks. After the PC, Christie Rampone and Kate Markgraf sat down with none other than former U.S. captain Julie Foudy to tape a few quotes for NBC to be used during the broadcast of the Japan game. We must say that Foudy still looks like she could lace up the boots and play in the semi (except of course for the belly, as she is five months pregnant with her second child).
