Reporting from Vegas

Postby JuanoLAL on Thu Aug 30, 2007 4:41 pm

I'm here, and I thought I'd make a thread with some information and pictures from my stay here with TEAM USA. Nothing too eventful thus far, but here goes.

-Last night's game was fun. Got a little boring toward the end, and I was surprised to see a different lineup to start the third (and a little bummed). Beyonce looked hot. LeBron's dunks were sick. Not much more to say.

-When we got back to the hotel, immediately I went down to the lobby (as usual) to wait for their bus to return. As soon as it arrived, the players started coming in - in big groups, so I felt like it'd be rude to single Kobe out for a picture, and they seemed to be in a hurry, so I didn't get a picture with any of them. No autographs either. I did get a picture with Coach K though, and my dad had a short convo with Michael Redd about his jumper finally falling. Not too eventful of a night.

-I have seen some notable people outside of TEAM USA, though. Just a couple minutes ago I saw Vanessa with Kobe's bodyguard in the lobby, and I just came up the elevator with Commissioner David Stern. You bet there was a lot I wanted to tell him, but he appeared to be in a heated discussion with two men and I didn't want to interrupt them and sound retarded. Vanessa looked hot as usual.

-So far today I've seen just the coaches wandering around the hotel. The players are in their rooms relaxing for tonight's game, but you bet that I'll be down in the same spot around 6:45pm in hopes of getting some pictures/autographs. They normally go to the bus by themselves so it'll be alot easier to track them down and ask for a picture. When I get home I'll be happy to upload them, I hope to have alot.

I'll update you guys as the time goes on. Remember, I didn't make this thread to brag or to make people upset, just thought I'd share some info with you guys.

Go TEAM USA! :jam2:

-Kobe and others had to reject my first attempt at getting a picture, security was around, man they're tight. This was on the way to the bus. Hopefully I can get them after the game!

The players are staying at the Wynn, so my guess is that is where Juanyo is.

Hate to say it but I didn't get any photos. The players just storm in too fast and they rejected a few folks in front of me asking for pics/autographs, so I didn't even feel like asking. It's just cool to see them right in front of you, great experience. I leave tomorrow morning, so I'll go down tomorrow, that will be my last chance. My dad doesn't like to hang with me and take pictures, so I don't know who will be my photographer.

Great game tonight. I thought it'd be alot closer, but Kobe started off hot and Carmelo continued that. Plus, we played some pretty good d. Weird that this was the closest game of the tourney but we still blew them out. Magic was there!

I'll consider posting that Coach K picture when I get home. Not sure if it's necessary.
