You may have heard from your friends who are cool, but our Twitter feed is all the rage these days - check it out at http://www.twitter.com/ussoccer. Writing just one or two sentences at a time can be pretty tough though, so this afternoon the ussoccer twitter sprung a surprise on the twitter nation and handed the keyboard to Jay DeMerit, who held a spontaneous q&a with fans for about an hour. Here are some of the questions he got (and the answers he gave):
@ussoccer Hey Jay...what's your prediction for the Cup Final tomorrow?
@ericpz I'd love to see Timmy get the win, so hopefully Everton can score a few goals to help him out...
@ussoccer bigger accomplishment winning Confederations Cup or Quarterfinal appearance in the World Cup?
@tickel09 Hmmmmm...Can I have both?
@ussoccer How much bigger is Gooch than every other guy on the team? Is he as intimidating in person as looks on TV?
@FerrisOnline He's much bigger than everybody else and much scarier. Especially when he has a beard.
@ussoccer in your opinion, who's the best player you've ever played against personally?
@Brendanmeyer Probably Messi. In the Copa America from 2007.
@ussoccer Are they going to let you do another internship at Soccer House?
@hoover_dam Ha! Hopefully my soccer house lawnmowing days are over...
Join in the fun over at twitter.com/ussoccer and stay tuned to see if somebody else takes command of the controls in the next few days (or weeks...we are on the road for awhile after all).
