        Maybe because all it takes is one day of bad weather and low visibility and we are left with Martin Vasquez (sp) as our USMNT coach.

        But I guess you have to take the good with the bad when you are dealing with a coach who prefers to takes risks rather than keep the status quo.

        Needless to say I’m a huge fan.

        The Helicopter is a Robinson R44 a four seat version of their real popular R22, one of the most popular helicopters in the world, sought for it’s economical cost and cost of ownership. It is also one of the most reliable. The factory that make them is right there in Torrance, where I think the helicopter Flite Center in the video is.

        The sell a lot of Robinson’s in South America and especially Brazil. The R22 and R44 are not real long distance helicopters and it’s out of range from Sao Paolo to the other USMNT venues so there will be little chance of him flying a heli around in Brazil.

        By which I mean that ryan was making a joke. Clever wordplay is something that needs to happen more often. Well done, ryan.


      • josh

        I was paying attention. It just wasnt funny. Word play is great if its actually funny.


      • Lil' Zeke

        Clever wordplay is what clever wordplayers like to call an “oxymoron”


      • Alex H

        Flak as in Flugabwehrkannone? Makes sense to me….Oh and for the record Alex Morgan looks way better wearing number 13.


  • Matt Holihan

    Can’t wait til he busts this out for a friendly to get a better idea on our shape and formation.

    Klinsmann is so badass he shows up to practice in helicopter, only to be out done by Chuck Norris showing up in a jet.


  • Madden's Chin

    He can coach forever if he shows up to a game in Azteca and lands that beast on the field before kick off.

    They are practicing for the halftime show at the Ghana game, Klinsy is piloting the chopper and Kyle Beckerman is jumping out and parachuting into the center circle while holding two lit fireworks.


  • Dainja

    wow. I love it but…PLEASE BE CAREFUL JUERGEN!!!! I hope USMNT can afford to stash a parachute in that chopper.


  • Rakesh

    Cool vid! Cool coach! Nike’s supporting gear during the centennial year has been pretty eye-catching. Klinsmann always seems to have on a different styled golf-shirt or tee or jacket during interviews; and the USMNT players also look really sharp pre- and post-game, as well as during travel days.

    This guy can be a rocket scientist for all we know, but can he win in Brazil. No gimmicks just WIN.


    • MN Footie

      I mean, I don’t think Klinsmann took up flying chopper in order to convince people that he was the right man for the USMNT job.

      Apart from the all-important question of “can he win?” I have to say that I think Jurgen seems like an all-around cool guy.


    • Increase

      Ah yes, begrudge the man his success. Bakers sons get all the advantages. No body else in the village got bread but Jurgen.

      On a serious note, society should want social mobility.
      Both up and this is very very important Down.

        Talking in circles is not helping the cause. If you are not about the cause (“Win Baby”) then WTF?
