Today, we were so tired that we slept in. We were supposed to have a late Thanksgiving dinner together as a team, but that ended up not happening. Some people went to Outback Steakhouse. Jacob and I went to a Korean Barbecue place on Ashely Road, near our Salisbury YMCA hotel. We had all kinds of starter dishes, including two kinds of Kim Chee. We also had our main dishes of noodles and tofu and some Korean beer. Then, for dessert, we were given two “ice” balls of red bean – they were so good, literally these little ice cream filled desserts with powdered sugar on the outside that were ice cold.
Next, we were at the rink. Our first game was a second match against Sweden and we tied 4-4. We hung around the rink since we only had a short time. Our goalie Sarah got kneed in the head during the game and knocked out, so she was recovering in-between games. Carl ended up being our goalie for the second game, a rematch against China. We beat China 2-1. Then Bear, Jacob, and I took off back to Ashely Road to have sushi and sake. We ended up having about 15 and a half shots of hot sake, fancy sake, and plum sake…and we even split some with our sushi chef. (Honestly, we don’t think the sake was very strong…). We had so much sushi and our bill was incredibly cheap considering how much stuff we had. When we got back to the hotel, we ran out onto the roof to take photos before security came and told us we had run out the fire door and weren’t allowed up there at night. And that concluded the evening.
