A Yank Abroad

What could be more stereotypical than running into a fellow American at Starbucks? Well, that happened today as we found an U.S. fan living in Hong Kong and ordering a tall mocha right across the street from our team hotel. Recognizing the crest, he asked if we were with the U.S. team, knowing that we were in town for the ING Cup. He and a group of his American friends will be in attendance for tomorrow night's game against the Ivory Coast, and we hope he brings everyone he knows - the more USA fans the merrier!

Apparently there are over 60,000 Yanks living here in Hong Kong - hopefully we'll feel their presence at the stadium...
