Mucho Gusto

A contingent of 15 U.S. players and staff went for a workout this morning and were surprised to find Spanish television stations waiting at the gym. How did they know we were coming?

The answer is they didn't. Turns out members of the Spanish team were there training as well, but in a different part of the gym. The Spanish journalists then camped out at the U.S. hotel, and we must say were among the most polite and respectful of any that we have encountered. Obviously they all wanted a word with Jozy, who was nice enough to do interviews right before the team meeting. And you know what? Jozy's espaƱol is pretty darn good...
