I’ll Have a Double-Double

Although this happened during the USA’s December mini-camp, it’s worth telling, especially considering the slow news day (which often happens when the team has two trainings). It seems that young Tobin Heath, the 19-year-old midfielder who is the youngest player in camp, got a hankering for the famous California fast food staple of In-N-Out Burger. You see, they don’t have In-N-Out in Basking Ridge, N.J. (her hometown) or Chapel Hill, N.C. (where she goes to school). But Heath had a problem. No wheels to get from the hotel to burger heaven. So, she took a cab. She hopped out of the cab, got a cheeseburger, some fries and a shake (and got a chocolate shake for the cab driver…now that’s a nice tip!) as well as an In-N-Out t-shirt for herself, then returned the team hotel with a full stomach and wearing her t-shirt. Now that’s burger dedication. Extra Note: Heath got an excellent score in the fitness test during this training camp (her third with the full National Team), perhaps indicating that a burger every now and then might be good for your aerobic fitness.
