Christie Rampone is not your typical soccer mom. As the newly-named Captain of the U.S. Women's Soccer Team, Christie is preparing to lead her team to capture the Gold in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. And in true multi-tasking mom style, Christie often travels the globe with her beautiful 2 ½ year-old daughter, Rylie, for her team's training. CBB caught up with Christie, 32, in between practices for an exclusive interview and photo shoot.

Where did you grow up?

As a little girl, were you into sports?

How did that playing sports as a little girl turn into you being the Captain of the U.S. Women's Soccer Team?

I bet your parents must have been very proud of you.


What does it feel like when you're playing soccer?

Why is that?

Rylie is quite the world traveler. Where has she been?

She must have the coolest passport of any two year-old out there.


You have one of the most unusual careers of any working mom. How do you find your balance?

You must have a rigorous schedule.

What position do you play?


Tell me how you became the Captain of the US Women's Soccer Team.

It's amazing how women's soccer has become so popular in the past few years.
