Now we know why Serena played poorly...

Blog by Heather Bown, member of USA women's volleyball team:

"Well another day has passed here in Beijing - and you are all in for a treat - you are currently sitting in the Olympic Village cafeteria…isn’t it nice? Ha…

But seriously, I thought I would multi-task tonight and bring you all to eat with me. I’ll give you a little tour of the café…ok so you walk in and its really like a college dorm experience only our café is about the size of an American football field. No scratch that as I look up I realize its about two long and one deep - yes its huge. So you walk in and grab a tray and your utensils, then proceed to whatever area you feel like at the time.

We have an Asian Cuisine, typical Asian stuff like rice, noodles, shrimp dumpling things. Then there is a Mediterranean cuisine, which I am more accustomed to living in Italy. So I spend most of my time there, also an International section which will fill in anything else that you might be craving. Then of course a salad bar which is where most of my meals are made from being as though I don’t eat meat, and a Halal food section, which I got laughed at for not knowing what that was. But it is simply food made without pork products.

And the big selling point of eating here is the all you can eat free McDonalds - yep you heard me - free McDonalds. But if you could believe it that is not the longest line in the place. The longest line with the most wait is actually for the McCafe’. Coffee!!!!! Can you believe it?!?!?!?! The coffee line is the longest, and I have to admit the Vanilla Late is killer in the morning. It’s not bad in the afternoon or night either… ha ha."

Re: Now we know why Serena played poorly...

Is this a joke about her eating too much mcdonalds or having to be forced to wait on the line and not getting any?

Well if she wasn't eating anything, she wouldn't play too well either.
