What up? A lot has happened here in Beijing since the last time we got down to blogging. Phil/Todd and Misty/Kerri are playing for gold!
EY, Nicole, Jake, and Sean lost but represented us well. It was hard to see those teams lose, they had tough draws and the games were closer than it looked …nice job guys and thanks for all you did for team USA!
Well not to name drop but I did get to hang after Kerri and Misty gave the Brazis a beat down in the semis with…are you ready? Kobe, LeBron, Chris Paul, Jason Kidd, and Tayshaun while we watched China play each other. It was surreal, and very cool. They were awesome and into it, and loved the kerri and misty. When the girls came into meet them after and thank them for coming, the NBA stars were the ones loving it. The only question i had, was how in the world did I get in here and who do I think i am…god it was beauty. Had to send out a couple of texts to my homies just to let them know how i was rollin!
I went with Julian Prosser who is a 3x Aussie Olympian and god, Greg Noyes, Casey Jennings, and a few friends to Hou Hai district which is a bar district yesterday after the girls won the semi to hang out and caught magic in a bottle. This place is unreal…it has bars all around this lake, or glorified pond. We rented a little boat, loaded up beers, and took this young chinese dude with a guitar after we paid him a little cash and cruised around all day as we sang Hotel California and some other made up songs for hours on end. We called the kid “Beijing Lambo” because of the guitar, but he sang actually like William Hung. Anyway, beijing Lambo was awesome, and we had one of the most classic days ever.
Today, Phil and Todd dominated the Brazillians….i mean georgians and they will be playing for gold…
I saw Tianeman Square,the Forbidden city, and the Summer palace all today …that ruled, so much history and really glad we did it. i actually feel like i’ve learned something and saw some things…still have to the Great Wall.
Bottom line, the trip is almost over, soon i’ll be hugging the wife and baby and chilling in the south bay, but first…we gotta win gold.
Kerri and Misty, then Phil and Todd. I can’t wait to be announcing and witnessing history. I don’t want to jinx anything so i’ll hit you up after we crush it.
By the way, I ate a scorpian today…glorified dorito really. Cool to say I did it, but they didn’t need to bring 10 to the table, we all only needed one.
USA JI YO
lets do this
