Talk of the Town

Today, the front page story in all the newspapers in Chillan wasn't the USA's win over Argentina. That was a subhead of the photos you can see below:

U.S. Soccer's ace team of equipment managers somehow knew that the city of Chillan would be enraptured with the American girls, and created the sign you see above - nice job guys. Needless to say, it was a huge hit when it was unraveled after the post-game handshake. The crowd went absolutely wild, and as you can see from the headline, the city of Chillan thanked the girls right back.

Tomorrow we will make the three-hour bus ride to Temuco for the third game of Group B against China. There are many reasons we want to come away on top of the group - not the least of which is the opportunity to return to Chillan for the quarterfinals.
