Default I Ran Into Team China And Team I Think Team USA Today.

Today I had some business to take care of in Portland, Oregon. It's a nice city the way. I went to the mall, sat down and ate, when all of a sudden there were these tall Chinese guys walking by. One of them was holding an Apple bag. He might've bought an IPod or something, I don't know. This was in the food court. With all the variety of food at the food court, they chose to eat at the Lotus Express, which serves Chinese food.

I spoke to a representative of Nike China who was there, who is a very nice guy by the way, and he was telling me that there's apparently a Nike Global Challenge taking place with Teams USA, Canada, China, and Senegal going on.

I thought it was interesting. The representative also told me that the tallest guy on Team China is 6'11," he pointed me out to him.

They look really young and he told me they're a bunch of 18 year olds here for the Nike Global Challenge.

As I was leaving the place. I saw a bunch of athletic looking people running to a bus. I assume they were Team USA since they were speaking English but I wasn't sure since they weren't wearing Team USA apparel or insignia like Team China was wearing their famous red Team China apparel.

Apparently the tournament starts tomorrow at a local university.
