AP Sportswire � Savannah, GA

Coaches Jeff Iannone, Mike DeMell and Julie Hunt announced today in a joint press conference that the 10 man roster for the 2006 season has been filled.� �I am proud to announce the addition of Sarah Kathryn Boyles to our team.� She has the speed, tenacity and overall personality that will make her a great addition to the team�, said Iannone.� �Furthermore, the previously announced addition of Maggie Hall was a critical pick up for team Italia.� Her level of experience will undoubtedly benefit the team from day one.�

�I am so happy to be part of the team, said Sarah Kathryn.� I had a couple of options but chose the route that I felt would be best for my family, my career and would provide the most marketing contract opportunities.�� Maggie Hall added, �When you have the opportunity as a free agent to join a big market team coming off an undefeated season you jump at it.� I look forward to contributing to the team in any role they need.�

�Coach Julie added, �We are excited to have the group back together.� The strength of the team is their ability and desire to play unselfishly and work as one unit.�� Mike DeMell then chimed in, �Speaking of marketing dollars�� �Not now Mike!!,� cautioned Iannone� �By the way what is that awful smell?�� �That�s my new athletic shoe insert, exclaimed Demell.� It makes your feet feel great!�� �But Mike that smell, added Julie, it�s making my eyes water�you can�t market something that smells like that!�� Dad, please take those shoes off cried Morgan.� [Demell departs]

��Sorry for the confusion.� Now we�d like to open the floor to questions for the rest of the team.�� Darby, last year you guys shocked a lot of people going 7-0-1 what are your expectations for this season? �Well, we felt all along we had a team that could win a lot of games, but that is over.� We need to focus on the new year, get into training camp and start to gel as a group.�� Sabrina? �Darby�s right, we have a big bulls eye on our backs this year.� No one is going to just rollover and let us win.� In fact they want to be the first to beat Fresco Elegante��� Claire, you have been training offsite for the last month.� Is this a result of an injury?� �No, not at all.� I felt like returning to nature to regain focus was the best alternative for me.� No phone, no TV just hard work and rough living��� Maggie [Iannone] your father has been called the lion by the players, why is that? �laughing, well we selected that animal for him because of the occasional roar he exudes.� He is nice to the other coaches, but he�d just assume plow em over once the game starts.� [puzzled look] �do you expect to have a place to sleep tonight?, asked coach Jeff.� Frances, you and Lauren are awfully quiet so far.� What�s going on in your minds? �Well, said Lauren, �I am ready to roll.� I can�t wait to get the team hootin� and hollerin� at midfield before that first game.� I just want to let it rip!� Frances added, �it�s been a long offseason.� I�ve been training hard and am in the best playing shape of my career.� I look to take charge offensively and make things happen.� If I need to take someone down�so beit!�

Mike called out from the back, �this team is great to be associated with.� My ESPN series was a great success, my �DeMell�s Liquigel Sportsdrink� is now the second best selling sports drink worldwide and my new shoe inserts will be great.� Have I told you about them?� It�s like walking on a cloud and the smell is certain to be a distraction to our opponents��DeMell�s Funky Smell� shoe inserts.� Found at all the leading retailers on the foot care aisle.�

Okay then, stated Iannone, well are there any more questions?� Yes, Abbey is it true your mom spends countless hours watching game film?� �I�d say.� She watched each of the World Cup matches three times dissected the video and will use these to put together game plans for our matches.� She does sleep though contrary to popular opinion.�� Morgan how does your dad prepare for the season?� �Well this year he bought a lot of ice and some thigh pads.� He says he�s prepared for any cheap shot blindsided kicks any lady coaches want to fire at him.� Besides that he�s been busy mixing cod liver oil and other smelly substances together in the garage.�� What about your preparation?� �Well, I�m fully committed to the season.� Two years ago when I turned down a lucrative goalie contract from Lil� Crew to remain with the team I decided this is where I plan on ending my career.� The only way to do that is to keep the fan support behind me.�

�Well I think you have a good feel for our team�s level of commitment.� Our early season practices will be closed to the media, but later in the year I expect in accordance to league rules to provide limited access to the grounds and players.� Thank you.�
