Hey hey, everyone!
So I’ve waited a few days to write because I wanted to have something more to share with y’all! The first week of training camp has come and gone so fast! The main theme Coach has been emphasizing these past few days is defense. He’s so passionate about us playing defense and being a great defensive team!
Over the weekend we got a day off so I got a chance to see Seattle a little bit. My aunt and cousin told me to make sure I ate at Ivar’s, so I went there for lunch before I went to the aquarium. The aquarium was pretty cool, I just wished there were some sharks! I also got a chance to visit the antique mall right across the street and there was a lot of really cool old stuff in there!! For dinner I went to the Space Needle and that was by far one of the coolest experiences! The view was gorgeous and the food was delicious!!
Today we scrimmaged the Chinese National team. It was good to scrimmage against another team and have to guard some players and plays we weren’t used to. But we all got better today!! Tomorrow we have Media Day and then a scrimmage against the Canadian national team, so it will definitely be a long, but fun day:-)
Oh I almost forgot! I went to the EMP museum too! I learned a lot about some artists that I’ve never listened to and got a chance be an Avatar! :-) it was a lot of fun!
Until next time,
