Corey brought Meredith into the room we were relaxing in and she chatted with us a bit. So look out for us on the Today show! Nat decided it was a great time to announce on television that I was single, since Meredith asked us about athletes hooking up during the Games. I am pretty sure I turned red after that. Sweet. Totally embarrassed on national television. :) But hey, maybe people will remember water polo now!

Guess who just came into the athlete lounge?
I was sitting in the athlete lounge with my teammates Natalie Golda and Jamie Hipp when Meredith Vieira and a camera crew from the Toady Show walks in. She was interviewing one of the USA Shooters, Corey Cogdell, who won a bronze medal at the start of the Games. Corey was showing her around the lounge, giving her a rundown of all the amenities we have here in the 2nd floor of our apartment tower- Internet, closed circuit TV showing all the events, telephones that allow us to call home for free(!), snacks, drinks, and couches to relax on. (The USOC provided us with this lounge and it is just for US athletes. There are general international lounges in the Village but they are really crowded and this gives us a little space of our own. It is also decked out with red, white and blue things and Getty Image photos from the games this far, to pump us up.)
