[SEEN AROUND TOWN]Some of us like to drive fast cars or perhaps motorcycles. U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann says his childhood dream was to fly a helicopter.
He takes us for a ride in his helicopter, which he uses to commute from his home in Newport Beach, Calif., to the National Training Center in nearby Carson.
Klinsmann says he took an interest in flying three years ago. "It keeps you on your toes," he says. "It helps me a lot."
He uses it as an example of what he tells others. Get off your cell phone. Don't worry about what other people think of you. Challenge yourself.
