Also Enjoying the Olympic Experience...

Some of the players met him at the Opening Ceremonies, but soccer fan (and NBA superstar) Kobe Bryant is just one of the athletes here in Beijing. While visiting the Village this afternoon, he happened to be walking out of the gates at the same time as Brian McBride and Peter Nowak were heading to their pre-game press conference.

Bryant was sitting down waiting for his escort as Nowak and McBride walked by. Not wanting to bother him, the pair just gave a friendly wave, but upon recognizing them as soccer players, Bryant popped up off his seat and shook their hands enthusiastically. The three Olympians chatted about upcoming games and past results before having to go about their business, but it was a cool Olympic "Team USA" moment that the athletes have been enjoying.
