You know fruit is good for you. But who knew kids liked things that are good for them? U.S. Soccer provided large bowls of fruit in the Players' Lounge and the apples, bananas and oranges are proving to be the hot items of the day. Teams started to arrive a little before 9 a.m. and by 10:30 a.m. the Lounge was littered with empty bowls (check out the pic). With a whole day of soccer left to be played, some quick-moving USSF employees, interns and volunteers darted out to the closest Kroger’s to re-supply (with folks literally carrying crates of bananas through the tent). Perhaps it helps that they're free? After all, who can turn down food that costs nothing.
