Abu Dhabi, UAE (Thursday, Nov. 27, 2003) - The U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team is lucky their first game of the FIFA World Youth Championship against Paraguay is two days away because they will need at least a day to recover from the Thanksgiving feast they chowed on this afternoon. The U.S. was treated to a fantastic meal by the hotel cooking staff between its morning and afternoon practices, thoroughly enjoying the tasty turkey, mashed potatoes and apple pie. A few hours later, the team had another taste of home as it practiced at the American Community School in Abu Dhabi, getting the chance to meet some Americans living, working and going to school in UAE. That wasn't all the team did as the team was busy on Turkey day. Read on to find out what else the team saw, ate, drank and said.
