In the latest episode of “Macready’s Take,” John Macready explores Takeshita Street, a shopping area that is very popular for tourists and locals alike. Macready makes friends all along the way while taking in the local culture. He samples the food, does a little shopping and tries to dances with the locals. He ends up at the Men’s Team Finals to interview the USA team after winning the bronze medal, only the fourth team world medal in history for the USA men!

Tokyo is the site of the 2011 World Championships. Macready’s Take, sponsored by AT&T Behind the Team, gives viewers an inside glimpse of what it’s like at the World Championships for the athletes and coaches, as well as a taste of local flair for the spectator. John Macready takes us behind-the-scenes so that viewers can feel like they are a part of the action. For more Behind the Team and Macready’s Take episodes, visit
