The Tale of Zippy
August, 25, 2006
Greetings from Tokyo, just down the train line from Saitama, where Team USA will take on Australia on Sunday afternoon (midnight on the East Coast, 9 p.m. Saturday on the West Coast) in the Round of 16 at the World Championship. The Americans and Australians have a pretty colorful history over the past decade, and luckily for you I was there each time they played, and I have a couple of good stories to tell. With one of them, U.S. scouting director Rudy Tomjanovich actually broke into a belly laugh Thursday night when we were recalling it together.
