MOST COMMENTED

[SEEN AROUND TOWN: USA in Sao Paulo] The USA completed its first week in Sao Paulo, where it is training at the World Cup facilities it will use during the finals. The Americans attracted a posse of reporters curious to find out about the giants of Concacaf. The week featured the first of two friendly games and the first birthday of the month.

FELIZ ANIVERSARIO. A local TV station delivered a birthday cake for Benny Feilhaber, the lone Brazilian-born member of the U.S. national team. Feilhaber, who turned 29 on Sunday, is one of four players who celebrate birthdays during the January camp along with Chris Harrington (28 on Friday) and Seth Sinovic and Chris Wondolowski (27 and 31, respectively, on Jan. 28).



VW BUS LIVES ON. Brazil was the last country where the iconic VW Bus -- the Kombi -- was produced. Production was discontinued in December as environmental and safety rules forced VW to stop manufacturing. The VW Bus is popular with Brazilian vendors and beach-goers. Just like in the United States.



NIGHT ON THE TOWN. Mike Magee enjoys a night out in Sao Paulo. with former LA Galaxy teammates Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez (taking the picture) and Mix Diskerud.



CLOSED-DOOR SESSION. Diskerud goes in for a tackle during the first of two closed-door scrimmages against Sao Paulo FC. The local club won, 2-1.



CURIOSITY SEEKERS. The USA's presence in Sao Paulo attracted a posse of reporters interested in meeting Coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his players.



TABLE FOR 26. It takes a long table to fit in all 26 players Klinsmann brought to Sao Paulo for training.
