The United States women’s soccer team is currently in the middle of the Four Nations tournament in China. The squad opened up with a surprising loss to Sweden before defeating Canada 2-1. They play the home country on Tuesday morning, but the players have a lot of downtime. Unfortunately, as midfielder Yael Averbuch writes in The New York Times, that’s not as distracting as it usually can be.
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube – basically anything fun – is blocked. We’ve also discovered that topics or historical events that may be controversial to the country are blocked from Google. My roommate, Lauren Cheney, and I have made a game of seeing what is and isn’t prohibited. These are the things we found to do in our spare time, especially on game day.
Soccer players: They’re just like us! (Bored in China.)
