Friday is the start of a big period of sports activity in Nashville, as the city is hosting eight teams as part of the NCAA Tournament. With the arena only a few blocks away from the team hotel, the buzz is everywhere. The visiting reporters are actually staying in the same place as the U.S. team.
Coincidentally, there aren't too many connections between players on the roster and the colleges that are playing in Nashville. Josh Gatt hails from Michigan and the Wolverines are here, but according to Josh he's not such a huge fan of basketball.
Many of the reporters we've run into are fans of soccer and the U.S. team, and the folks from Comcast Sports Net in Philadelphia were chatting with Freddy Adu.
It's going to be a bit of a hectic weekend ...
