Today on Mr. Media, I’ll talk to one of America’s most successful, most popular soccer players ever, Olympics and World Cup champion Brandi Chastain. What's up with Brandi Chastain now? She’s here to talk about the Active Family Project, sponsored by Merck Pharmaceuticals. Merck is donating soccer kits to US Youth Soccer programs in under-served communities to encourage more kids to play soccer and Brandi is the face of the program. Kids playing soccer is something I personally have a vested interest in; this fall will be my 12th year coaching girls soccer, and my seventh at Shorecrest Preparatory School here in St. Petersburg, Florida. Getting out on the field with my kids from November through January is my favorite time of year; getting insight from a world champion such as Brandi is a great opportunity. This is Brandi's second time as a guest on the show. And can I just say that she is one of the nice, sweetest guests ever. She can come back any time!
