With the change in time, the meal room was slightly more populated at breakfast than it would have been otherwise. One person who hasn't been affected by the clock shift is Jonathan Spector who, in the eyes of roommate Marcus Hahnemann, sleeps way too long. "I don't get it," said Marcus to us at the table this morning. "He goes to sleep before me, even if all the lights are on. Then I wake up early and he's still sleeping." Even after we went back upstairs, Marcus was still afraid to go back in his room for fear of waking up the roomie.
Training is in the afternoon this time around, which means there's a large period of hotel time in the middle of the day. The Match Commissioner's passport check is scheduled for 12:45, and there are several interviews for ESPN and U.S. journalists, but other than that there is just some protracted chilling going on.
With nobody leaving the hotel, the floor has taken on a college dorm feel, and as we sit here writing this guys amble back and forth down the hall (there goes Danny Califf), and somebody is playing music a few rooms down (we think it's Maurice Edu).
Not too much going on other than that, just stay tuned to ussoccer.com for today's Studio 90 News...
