Every so often, the Internet does something to restore one’s faith in humanity. Wednesday was just such a day, as Michael Bradley hopped on the US Soccer Twitter account for a great Q&A with the ‘SMNT faithful.
From players that he emulates to some Brad Guzan smack talk, this is some truly great stuff from the General. The full transcript of the chat is below; Bradley answers as “@ussoccer” with his answers preceding the questions.
