"It's not so bad," we said yesterday. "This is more cool than cold."
"Oh, really?" said Slovakia. "Well try this on for size."
That was more or less how we imagined the conversation going, because today was not for the faint of heart. It was chilly when we got to training, so out came the jackets and pants for the players. Over the course of our 90 minute session the weather deteriorated, and by the end it was a steady, biting downpour as we made our way to the bus.
That being said, this is pretty good soccer weather and any of the coaches and players will tell you that. Maybe not so much for blogging or tweeting, especially when your hands are frozen, but for footy you could do a lot worse.
Anyhow it should be more of the same tomorrow. At least the MNT Blog will be prepared this time.
