The U-20 MNT got a break from training today, instead going through a regeneration session at the hotel's fitness center and pool. In the afternoon, to keep everyone from going stir crazy, Sheanon William's family invited us over to their house... Suffice to say, there were plenty of things to do in their amazing house, but even if there were only monkeys they guys would have been perfectly content for a few hours to play with them....

...that's right, monkey cages! The two small monkeys were highly entertaining, and that was even before we stepped in the house. The huge backyard was a menagerie of dogs, rabbits and birds by the pool. The inside included a nice game room with pool tables, air hockey and foosball. It was hard to peel the guys away, but alas, it was time for a team dinner and meetings. Thanks again to Sheanon and his huge extended family for making us feel welcome so far from home (well, far from home for most of us)!
