PHUKET, Thailand (Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2004) - With a lot of downtime to fill, and being big fans of the U.S. Soccer web site, U.S. U-19 National Team players Kerri Hanks and Stacy Lindstrom decided they wanted to write a diary for ussoccer.com. Not one to stifle young and talented writers, we obliged. While admitting that writing a diary is not as easy as it seems, Stacy and Kerri check in with their first installment from Phuket, Thailand, as they get set for their first match against South Korea in the FIFA U-19 World Youth Championship. While the two couldn’t be more different – Lindstrom is a six-foot blond midfielder from Orange County, Calif. (yes, the OC), who attends UCLA, and Hanks is a 5-foot-6 brunette forward from Allen, Texas, who will be attending Notre Dame -- the two combined to chat about Kerri’s dancing talents, the team’s fright and flight reflexes and opening the world championship tomorrow.
