Default Bosh: 13 Hour Flight, Macao Like Vegas, McDonalds In China!

Just an update on Bosh's blog. They've arrived in China now in preparation for the Olympics.

The city of Macao is beautiful. They say it's like Las Vegas and to be honest it's kind of close, but there's nothing like Vegas. They have flashing lights and gambling (I don't like gambling anyway), but the building aren't as flamboyant and they really don't have a strip like Las Vegas Blvd.

I hope we don't have practice today because this has been an exremely long travel day, but I have a feeling we are. We don't play until Thurday and Friday so we have a little bit of practice time in the days between. Its early afternoon so I'm sure the coaches feel that we can run out the Jetlag. I've heard that from so many coaches. Me personally, I don't think it works.

On a brighter note, I think I'm going to have a good time here because they have a few Americanized resrurants and a few spots that look kind of familiar to me. I just hope their McDonalds is the same as it is in the States and a couple of people speak English. If not, I'm in trouble because my Mandarin isn't that great.

I'm sure some of you guys saw the game we played against Canada a couple of days ago. It was fun to get back out there and play some good ball. Even though we won in a convincing fashion, I think we didn't play our best ball. We can do a better job of playing defense and taking care of the ball. We have to do those things if we want to wear those Gold Medals when it's all said and done. That's the challenge of the whole thing, but we can and we will get the job done.

Well... This is my first official day in China! I have my XBOX and movies so I'm ready. HOLLA!!!
