Yao Ming Would Not Fit On This Bus

While all the organization has been fantastic so far in Shenyang, the team bus the U.S. is taking to and from training, as well as for any excursions, seems to have been designed for oompa-loompas. Shannon Boxx, who is 5-9, but certainly no giant, barely fits in the leg room between seats. The USA's 6-6 goalkeeper coach Phil Wheddon pretty much has to sit sideways with his legs across both seats. Speaking of excursions, a few of the players went shopping this morning, but they took the team to a big mall where the prices are the same or more expensive than the USA. That wasn't going to yield much shopping success. The U.S. players like bargains!
