"Scoring goals, smashing records, winning trophies have become this little man’s daily routine. No matter how high the bar is set, Messi will eventually find a way to reach it. We are extremely lucky that we are getting the chance to watch someone as unbelievable as Lionel Messi play."

what got you into football?
I’ve always watched the World Cup, but I was kind of in a low place in World Cup 2010, and I really got into watching the games - that’s also when I started playing. Started following club football after that - European first, then Sporting KC. I’m so glad I did; I sure have learned a lot since then. My views have probably changed since I wrote that too; I’m 3 years into following football now.
who is your favorite football player based on skill?
I’m not watching enough football right now to know who’s on point =/ It has been incredible watching Dom Dwyer have a breakout year, though.
who is your favorite football player based on looks?
Captain Fantastic, there is no question here.
what would you do if you saw your favorite footballer in front of you?
Carles Puyol? Probably freak out and forget what I wanted to say. But I’d want to thank him for what he’s done for the sport, and for the great example he’s set for kids who look up to athletes as heros. He’s one of the few I think is worthy of that.
who is the best footballer ever?
Messi. Not here to start any arguments. Just, if you think you’d like to argue please read this first.
who is your favorite goalkeeper?
what nt and fc do you support?
USMNT, Sporting KC, FC Barcelona
if you could add five of your favorite players in your favorite nt/fc who would it be?
Argh, this is hard. If Sporting KC could have Uri Rosell back in midfield I’d do that in a second. Throw in a great goalkeeper like Manuel Neur to give our guys a break every now and then; maybe put Jordi Alba on the wing, and….I don’t know. Like I said I’m not watching a ton of football right now =/
do you like any other sport?
Everything in the winter Olympics. I don’t watch a lot of sports outside soccer and the Olympics. College basketball is ok.
