What was your favorite moment from seeing Barcelona?
My favorite moment from seeing Barcelona was getting to meet Deco and take a picture with him. I don't think he understood a word I was saying, but he was very nice and smiled for the picture.
What was the funniest moment?
The funniest moment was when Alicia said "por favor" to Gudjohnsen and he replied with "wow, that's more spanish than I speak" and then he was laughing and had a huge smile on his face.
Did you (or your teammates) talk to any of the players? What did you talk about?
I talked to them for only a few seconds, but a lot of my teammates talked to the players. Ronaldinho told Alicia Lloyd he was going to marry her.
Did you see any similarities between your practice and their practice? Did they do any similar drills to the drills that your team does in practice?
Yes haha, they did pattern play, which our team hates doing, so it made me realize that maybe it really is necessary.
Did you see things that you want to try this season?
How about being unbelievably good
Describe your thoughts when you first saw the team.
I was in shock and my heart was pounding.
How do you think this experience will help LMU soccer this season and in the future?
I think it will be amazing publicity for our school and let other schools know that LMU soccer is for real. We train where Barcelona trained...that really is something. We are standing in the footsteps of Ronaldinho and other players that are the best in the world.
Was it what you expected?
It was much much more.
