What's your # 1 personality quirk
Well everyone says I talk too much, I'm always cracking jokes and people are always telling me to shut up. I talk in meetings, on the field, I've got diarrhea of the mouth.
What CD are you listening to obsessively
50 Cent - Valentine's Day Massacre, I don't know the name of the song but it's track #12. I listen to it when I'm driving my porsche.
TV show you never miss
Wow, it's gotten to the point where I watch all of the CSI's now. Whether it be the original CSI Miami, CSI New York, my favorite is the one in Vegas. I just like watching the detective side of it, and trying to find out about DNA and info about crime scenes.
Last movie you saw
Constantine. It was very good with Keanu Reeves. It was somewhat controversial, I liked it but I didn't like it as much as I liked Passion of the Christ. That has to be my favorite movie of all time. Wow, did I like that movie
Favorite book you've read
I don't read. I'm not a fan of reading, I think I have ADD or something.
Most flattering outfit
A white Hanes tank top, a John Deere hat and some blue jeans. I'm from Georgia so I have to stick to my redneck roots Though I do I have these adidas snake skin tennis shoes that I wear with the outfit, I got the shoes in South Korea when I went to World Cup. Those shoes make the outfit.
Very ghetto, shake my big booty. I have a huge booty so I have to shake that thing. I dance for people all the time, especially in the locker room.
Favorite stadium to play
It has to be Dallas, cause I always scored. I also like playing at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles.
Favorite female soccer player
My girlfriend Tracey Windson, she played at UCLA and in the WUSA for San Diego Spirit until it folded.
I love soda, I can wake up at 7 a.m. every morning and drink soda. This morning I downed a Dr, Pepper. Instead of Gatorade, I will drink soda. I can drink it during a game. I don't drink much water. I've been drinking soda forever, though I think I have more cavities than teeth.
Last major purchase
I just bought a new watch. A Lockman, it's called a Latin Lover, but I just broke it yesterday. I think it was $2.39, so I didn't lose too much money.
