Lindsay Tarpley has some fun with the Chinese saleswomen
The U.S. team has been quite busy in China with training, a game, meetings, video and/or weights every day since the team arrived. Still, when you're on the U.S. WNT, there's always time for shopping, especially when there are some great deals to be had. If you've ever been in a Chinese market, it's a sight to be seen, especially when a group of Americans descend, with rapid translations going back and forth on price, sizes, colors, quantity, etc. Needless to say, the U.S. players have gotten pretty good at it. And they have some great team liaisons who speak English well and know how to shop. It's a lethal combination for the players' wallets.
If you saw the video on the WNT's young forwards, you know Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux love to shop
You know the shopkeepers are short when Amy Rodriguez towers over them
