Greetings from Chicago! I played badminton in high school for 4 years...then stopped for 2 yrs and just recently picked it up again. Watching the Sudirman Cup reminded me of how exciting this sport is! Yay China!! I've had a chance to see players train in China..and all I can say is...wow, damn. My fav players are Bao Chun Lai and the Fu/Cai pair. Lin Dan is exciting to watch too. Watermelon is my favorite fruit.
