"They got the Great Wall of China."

Boo Weekley and Heath Slocum sat down with the scribblers to talk about playing in the World Cup.

Naturally Boo came through again with more transcript gold...

STEWART MOORE: Heath and Boo, thank you for spending a few minutes with us in the Children's Miracle Network Classic interview room. You guys are going to be representing the United States in the World Cup November 19th in China. I'm sure the world is awaiting Boo Weekley's arrival in China. Maybe talk about what you guys are going to look forward to and then we'll take some questions.

BOO WEEKLEY: I think it will just be fun just to go over there. I know I've only left the country one time, and that was to go to Scotland, and it will be fun to see what's going on.

Q. You played in Mexico, didn't you?

BOO WEEKLEY: Yeah, Mexico, but --

HEATH SLOCUM: That's still North America.

BOO WEEKLEY: Twice then. Yeah, that's still part of North America. Thanks, Heath.


 Q. What do you know about China?

BOO WEEKLEY: It's a long ways away. They got the Great Wall of China.

Or...on playing in the World Cup:

Q. Boo?

BOO WEEKLEY: I'm excited to go over there, and like Heath said, it's an honor to represent your country. I wouldn't have gone by myself, though; it's not that I didn't want to represent my country, but I ain't into traveling, especially during hunting season.

Q. What season is it?


Q. It would be deer season if you were at home now?

BOO WEEKLEY: I would have gotten up at 4:30 in the morning, and I'd probably still be in the woods right now.

Preparing for a future as a player architect, no doubt.

Q. How do you get from home to China?

BOO WEEKLEY: The way I got it figured up. We are going to have to fly to Atlanta or Charlotte --
(Cell phone ringing.)

BOO WEEKLEY: Now I got a phone call. How do you turn this thing off --

Q. You can answer it.

BOO WEEKLEY: I think we go to Charlotte or Atlanta, and then somewhere else, and then over.

Q. How long does it take? Did you look?

HEATH SLOCUM: Eighteen hours.

BOO WEEKLEY: I just know --

HEATH SLOCUM: Atlanta to Seoul to Hong Kong, eighteen hours flying time.

Glad it's them and not me!
