Big Day Out!

After a nice long recovery session this morning, the U.S. U-17s had a well-deserved afternoon off and ventured across the border to spend the day at Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego. The boys took in one of the movie options:

-I Love You Man
-Fast and the Furious

I Love You Man got good reviews, as did Fast and the Furious (some players list the first of that series as their favorite movie). Fighter and Obsessed had mixed reviews.

After the flick, the players had a few hours to walk around, do a little bit of shopping (lots of Nike gear from the Nike Store) and enjoy the sunshine of the outdoor mall. We don't get out much here in Tijuana!

Then it was a change of pace for dinner - the Cheesecake Factory. We have been eating a lot of the athlete staples, simple proteins and complex carbs (lots of chicken, pasta and rice) so it was a good chance to have something different.

Then it was back on the bus and back across the border (going out of San Diego was much easier than coming in!) to get to the team hotel in time for an early bedtime.

Tomorrow, it's back to the grind and back to the practice field to get ready for Costa Rica!
