[SEEN AROUND TOWN] The first week of January means it's back to work for the U.S. men's and women's national team with lots on the line for Jurgen Klinsmann's boys. But there were a few unusual sights as the camps opened.

SANTA MONICA IN THE MORNING. There are few better sights in the morning -- even in January -- that the beach of Santa Monica. For members of the U.S. men's national camp training at the National Training Center this week before heading down to Sao Paulo, a morning jog is in Santa Monica is one of the perks of the job.

HANGING OUT. Before heading off for Monday's Ballon d'Or Gala in Zurich, where she could be in line for her second FIFA Women's Player of the Year award, Abby Wambach hangs out with Heather O'Reilly at the U.S. women's training camp in Carson, Calif.

HERR PILOT. Most of us drive to work. Or take the train or bus. Or walk. Or work at home. U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann takes a helicopter from his home in Newport Beach to Carson.
