MOST COMMENTED

[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.



BIRTHDAY BOY. LA Galaxy players and coaches wish a happy birthday to Bill Armistead, the club's senior account executive for season ticket sales, who celebrated his 80th birthday!



THREE PILLARS. The San Jose Earthquakes celebrated their 40th birthday with the unveiling of their new logo. Quakes president Dave Kaval told fans the logo represented the three pillars of the club -- unity, devotion, heritage -- going forward.



FULL HOUSE. For the first time, a winter friendly at the StubHub Center sold out as a full house watched the USA began its World Cup preparations with a 2-0 win over South Korea.



OFF TO WORK. In another circumstance, he'd be a schoolboy heading off to school in a coat and tie, but Gedion Zelalem, all of 17, was arriving for work at the Emirates for Arsenal's game against Crystal Palace for which he suited up.



THE GENERAL ARRIVES. Members of IMG Academy seek autographs from U.S. national team star Michael Bradley, who is in Bradenton for his first training camp since joining Toronto FC.

    People who go for rides with newly minted Helicopter pilots must have s..t for brains. USMNT needs a firm rule, no USMNT players get to fly with JK.
