Nick Pryor from Russia, now the tourney begins!

As you already know, 2009 Wisconsin defensive recruit Nick Pryor has agreed to do a little correspondence piece with us while he is in Russia for the U-18 World Championships. Nick will be updating us as they go through the tournament when he gets some free time. Nick and Team USA are kicking off the tournament today. Here's Nick's update for us today. Thanks again Nick!

Hey everyone just thought I would give you another update here. Today, Sunday, is the first day of the tournament. This morning we woke up around 8 o'clock, got some breakfast in us, and then headed over to the rink for a 30 minute morning skate. The last couple days we have had a lot of time off to do what we want, so a lot of us either caught up on some sleep, got some studying done for school, or walked around the city a little bit. Yesterday, me and a couple of the guys walked down the street to a grocery store in the city, and it was pretty funny because some locals would come up to us and talk to us, and we obviously have no idea what there saying so we all just stood there and shook our heads and said "Yeah...Yeah...Yeah" not knowing one thing that he was saying or asked us. Well right now its about 11:30 in the morning here, so I'm gonna go do what I can to get ready for our game tonight at 7 vs Switzerland. They got a good team, and they showed that vs the Russians in there exhibition game where the Swiss pretty much took it to them the whole game and beat them 4-1. All of us know what we have to do to come out on top tonight, so hopefully we can execute the game plan. Thanks for reading! GO USA
