Klinsmann takes to the skies

MOST COMMENTED

[OFF THE POST] It has been said that Jurgen Klinsmann does things a little differently than most other national team coaches do. That now applies to how he's been getting to practice during the national team's January camp at the Home Depot Center ...

Grant Wahl at SI.com reports that Klinsmann has been killing two birds with one stone by flying a helicopter from his home in Huntington Beach to Carson -- a distance of 25 miles -- and avoiding the traffic on the 405. The trips have been earning him the hours needed to obtain his helicopter pilot license.

Flying from home to practice also allows him to spend the night with his family but be back with his players for breakfast.
