Media 101

There's been a handful of media that's made their way out to The Home Depot Center already these past few days, which means a number of players are getting the chance to test out their new skills you say? Well, during the first days of Finals Week when teams weren't playing games they went through a media training session, their first of a handful of educational symposiums they'll take part in during the week. Conducted by the U.S. Soccer Communications staff, the players were informed how to handle themselves in front of the media, what things they should say and shouldn't say and were given real life examples of good and bad examples from actual scenarios that occurred with some of their favorite MNT players.

So...did they pay attention? Well, read some quotes or watch some of the interviews and find out for yourself.
