Happy St. Patty's Day

March 18, 2011, 9:55 a.m. (ET)

Today was a well needed rest day for all us. We started out the day with breakfast and then headed over to the training center to watch the National Team's scrimmage. Watching from the stands above the field helped us understand the new system that we have been learning during our training sessions for the past few days. After the scrimmage it was time for our "SOCIAL" with Canada. We got to know them and we even taught them a new game. Every time someone said the word "mine" they had to do 10 pushups in front of everyone. We all were tricked into saying this word...even the coaches. Even though we are rivals this week on the field, we were able to meet new friends that we will keep in touch with.

When we got back to the hotel we all decided to go somewhere other than the training center for dinner. We went to the mall for a little shopping and then split up for dinner. Some of us went to a restaurant called BJ's and had the best dessert ever! They were called PAZOOKIS and I do not think anyone tasted anything better.

Tomorrow we will play our third game against Canada. Here we go States!
Happy St.Patricks Day!
