Thanksgiving in Chile!

Well, it wasn't quite like home, but it was close... the U-20 team had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration here in Temuco tonight, complete with family members, standard traditions and some improvisations.... There was also a talent portion of tonight's festivities and of course, hilarity ensued.

The players enjoying a meal with their second family

Mautz's talent was knocking a bottle off Alex's head with a slingshot and a gummy bear... needless to say, Alex got hit in the head a couple of times

Kaley and assistant coach Amanda Cromwell did the Worm... they even had a race

And what Thanksgiving is complete without football? Tonight we watched futbol AND American football

All said, it was a really nice night spent with those we love. And really, what more could we ask for? A special thanks to the hotel staff and all the players' families who helped make it feel like home tonight. The people in our hotel had a difficult time understanding what exactly we celebrate, but they were eager to learn! We think that has something to do with all the food we ate...
