WNT May 13, 2011

The U.S. WNT had a day off on Wednesday, and the players did the usual day of things: sleep, movies, shopping, manicures, etc. Three players decided to do something a bit more "wild" and headed to the world famous Columbus Zoo. Our ussoccer.com cameras followed Nicole Barnhart, Stephanie Cox and Rachel Buehler and we'll have a feature up soon that we are calling "Bue at the Zoo."
Buehler, who hails from San Diego, knows a thing or two about world famous zoos, so we'll get her reaction to Columbus and suffice it to say, they saw a lot of great animals, as you'll see in the video. Nicole Barnhart also decided to give Super Mom Christie Rampone an afternoon "off" and took her baby daughter Reece to the zoo. She can't talk yet, but it seemed like she enjoyed the animals. It was a pretty hot day, so most of the animals were doing some serious lounging around (kind of the same as the WNT players did on their day off).
