Meanwhile, over in Portugal...

Okay, Jordan called last night after I posted.

The RT had been wandering around the hotel stalking looking for the Nat'l Team after their loss in the Algarve Cup final to no avail. Most of the RT went back up to their rooms, but Jordan & a few of her friends went to the hotel lounge to watch the FC Barcelona v. Lyon game. Guess who walks in? Yup, the most of the NT! The NT players proceeded to SIT WITH JORDAN & HER FRIENDS! They sat there & talked WITH the NT players! Like had actual conversations with them. Her heroes! To her, this is the equalent of Michael & I being in a bar & hanging out with Bono & the boys. CRAZY! Unfortunately, her camera was in her room. Ugh! She has assured me that she has been a diligent photographer for the the rest of her trip though.

[note to Kasey... she was listing the players she was hanging with last night & I can't remember them all, but at various points of the trip, she's hung with Natasha, Lindsay, Carli, Heather, Hope, Tina, Megan, Kacey & Rachel. The only one she really wanted to see personally & didn't see was Lori.]

Unfortunately, the NT was leaving the hotel very early this morning to report to their respective WPS teams, so the stalking fun is over. They'll have to find something else to occupy their down time now. Today they are heading to Huelva, Spain to play a Spanish team. It looks like that's about a 1 1/2 hours drive along the southern coast of Portugal.

It sounds like she's having the time of her life. I'll have to keep reminding her of this next week when she is dealing with jetlag, make-up school work, her high school soccer banquet & preparing for the 1st round of State Cup with her club team. For those of you who know Jordan, you know that I'm not in for an easy week. And, oh yeah! Michael will be out of town too.

Back on the homefront, Megan just woke up & is cooking up some scrambled egg w/ green pepper, onion & salsa. YUM! We're doing the tour of TJM*xx, Mars*alls & Costco today, we need fortification! :)

BTW, the pasta last night was absolutely delicious!

Yay! Jordan's practically on the NT now! :) Too bad she missed Lori. Although had I met Heather and Hope I would be satisfied.
btw, tell Jordan that while in a foreign country that her camera should be attached to her hip at all times. You never know!
