Helping Hands

We have to give it up for the staff here at the team hotel in Tampa. It's been a while since the team has been anywhere other than the IMG campus, so we'd almost forgotten what it's like to be in a hotel. The staff is very excited to have the team here, and we were greeted by employees wearing the new MNT jerseys and U.S. Soccer hats. The meal room has been decorated with soccer tableclothes and wall decorations. But, beyond the decorations, there is an employee (dressed in a flowered shirt - hey, it's Florida!) always there to help with whatever we need.

We also have to mention the impressive breakfast spread we had today - there was more food than even our group could eat. Everything from Belgian waffle machines and a waffle bar, to a huge pastry tray to fruit, in addition to the traditional breakfast fare. Excellent work from the chef, who has already made himself part of the team.

Is there any chance to find out where the group is staying. I would love to meet the entire team and don't think I would get that chance at the game I am going to on Thursday. It would be a fantastic opportunity to meet some of these guys.
