Tour #2 begins
May 17, 2010;
11:00 am- We have arrived in Chongquing from an early morning flight from Beijing. The team rolled out at 5:15 am to get to the airport for our 7:20 am flight. We don’t have a great deal of flying on this trip which is always a blessing. You are only allowed 42 lbs per person regardless of number of pieces of luggage that you check. It makes for an overage on the first flight since we have so many giveaways for the other teams and people.
Had some great friends great us at the airport. Weiming, Mr. Yang’s assistant and Sarge, in charge of the bus and travel, were friendly faces meeting us as we flew in. Mr. Yang is the guy that sets all of our stuff up. He has been in the government and part of the basketball federation but now also has a sports marketing company. He is always great to work with.
We are now on the bus, a very nice one at that, heading for Changshou. Supposed to be an hour ride but you never really know until you get there. The guys have really been great. They have jumped in and helped with luggage and really made it a point to try to talk with the locals.
4:30 pm- Finished our team time, led by Max Appel. We are excited about learning new things about ourselves. We had Ampicillin cheap online a good shoot around. The arena is really nice and the floor is super. That in itself is amazing in that we many cheap Amoxil times have slick floors, which I am expecting more times than not. Guys are resting a bit as we are getting ready for pregame meal. There seems to be pretty good chemistry at the moment, but you never know.
Game one is in the books with a Reach USA win 87-75. A real tough game physically but one that seemed to be in hand for most of the game. It was a close game early when Skylar McBee, now know as “Skylar McThree”, hit two threes to put the USA team up by 7 and managed to get it up to 15 in the first half. The Bayi Rockets fought back and cut the led to 7 at the half. The Chinese team got within 5 but again behind the hot shooting of McBee, 16 was the biggest second half margin.
