Well, we have come to the end of the road of World Cup 2008. Though we didn’t rob Italy of an 11-0 sweep, GREAT JOB ITALY, we did reach our primary objective which was to qualify for Beijing. Wheeeew! At least that is behind us. We had some opportunities to close the third set but in the end too many errors committed. Italy played a very clean match.

Now, I will be heading home on Saturday for a couple of days, literally. Not much time to relax. I will get in celebrate my nephew’s 19th birthday, go to church gather some things and head out on Monday for Brazil. There I will join my team Finasa Osasco for the semi’s of the Paulista. GO Finasa. So no Thanksgiving Turkey Day for me boo!

Once again, thank all of you supporters of USA volleyball program, team, individual players and coaches. You don’t know how much it means to us and me personally. I really appreciate your taking a chance and writing to me in English…which I am really impressed with you all you are quite good. It takes a lot of courage. I know from personal experience trying to speak or write in a different language is quite difficult. So thanks.

Take care, blessings,

  6. Hi Danielle,

    I know it is a bit late. But still, I want to say to you and your teammates GREAT CONGRATULATIONS on qualifying for Beijing, where I am from. You and your teammates had done the best to achieve that. It was a tough tournament given so many matches, a short period of pre-tournament practice of the team USA, and injuries that had hindered players’ performance. Yet, you guys made it in a great way. Thanks to the generous Chinese online TV system, I was able to watch nearly every match team USA played at my home in San Diego. Certainly the match USA played against Brazil was one of the most impressive and unforgettable games throughout the Would Cup. That match shows that the team USA has what it takes to the Olympic gold metal. Next summer in Beijing, I will go cheer you, your teammates and Jenny up. I wish you have a successful Olympic journey and a joyful stay in China. Take care! Allen from San Diego, CA

    Hi Dani, I am a big fan of USA volleyball and International volleyball. I admire your work and always cheer, root and pray for the USA.

    I can never see the games, though. I don’t mind if they are delayed, old,.. whatever, I’ll love to see them. I live in New York and recently subscribed to RAI on cable, hoping to see some games since they were airing some… but nothing. I have seen NOTHING. I am hurting here.

    any sugestions on how I could view them. I would even buy DVDs. Anthing. Please advise.
    God Bless you and Praise God! The USA has qualified for the olympics. GO USA! Now I am rooting for the men.

  9. Hey Danielle & Fellow USA Olympians!

    It’s really great to see you and several other of my old college player favorites having so much fun and playing so well for Team USA! I just want to congratulate you, your teamates, coaches, and others who make all this possible! It’s been awesome to watch your matches in large screen hi def on Universal HD! The matches are delayed, but terrific to watch! I was super excited to see you play Brazil so well – wow! BTW I attended Long Beach State during the mid eighties, and came out to watch you play on several occaisions subsequently. I also had the fortune of watching and meeting Logan and Oguna at a sizzling Stanford vs USC match at USC several years back – what great people and teamates!

    Just out of curiosity, I am a rehab/sports as well as Qi Gong therapist in SoCal, if the team is ever in the area I would love to know what I could do to contribute – it would be an honor!

    Hope to see you all at your best ever in Beijing!
