    • 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.

    • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

      • 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.

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