    Chatting with Chivas USA: Curtin
    A weekly feature that reminds you that some guys are still on the squad

    Philadelphia-native Jim Curtin would be a lumberjack if he weren't playing in MLS.

    Okay, Jim. Who's the funniest guy on Chivas USA?
    The self-proclaimed funniest guy in the team is Carey Talley. He's always screwing around and pulling pranks on people. There was a very good one recently.

    Can you tell us what it was?
    Not really. Let's just say it involves Preki’s jockstrap and a jar of Icy-Hot.

    What percent of the Chivas USA roster could you beat in ping-pong?
    My game's not that tight, it's been a while because the other guys don’t let me play. Sometimes I come in when the guys are at practice and I play with myself. I mean, umm… I practice ping-pong. I thought that Nagamora would be good but it turns out he’s not actually Asian. Go figure.

    Who would play you in the Hollywood version of your life?
    My favorite actor is Peter Griffin, so I'll say him. I don’t really look like him, but I'd like to be a cartoon someday.

    If you could choose entrance music for when you came onto the field, what would it be?
    I've always thought about this one. I have to go with some Jonas Brothers stuff….. you know that one song, ya, that’s my jam.

    What would be the title of your autobiography?
    "Fun Things to do on IR by Jim Curtin." When you play a pro sport, sometimes things just don't go your way.

    Who's the most famous person in my cell phone?
    How about Dog the Bounty Hunter? I went to rehab with him. I also dated Dikembe Mutombo. He gets a lot of late night calls from me and my friends.

    If you could have dinner with any soccer player, who it would be?
    Wow – At this point, I’d really just like to be invited out with the team. One time Deebo sent me to go pick up some Burger King.

    What would you be doing right now if you weren't playing pro soccer?
    Is that a trick question?

    What's the ugliest soccer jersey you've ever seen or worn?
    The Kansas City Wizards jersey that first year was ugly. The one with the rainbow colors. It's kind of cool now, I guess. I’m bigtime into rainbows and unicorns.

    What sports do you play beside soccer?
    That’s another trick question…. You almost got me. I swear though, I used to play soccer. Did you ever see me with the Fire? Blazing speed, yep, I had serious game.

    What sport are you worst at?
    Ok, that’s it. Interview over.

    Speaking of Mutombo...

    One day I was subjected to listening to Rome by a coworker, and some guy was on there talking about being at Georgetown the same time as Deke. Apparently it was a common occurrence on weekend nights to be hanging out in a bar when, all of a sudden, Deke would walk in and ask/shout this question to the whole room, "WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO???!?"

    As the guy put it, "seriously, you never saw a crowd clear out of a room so fast in your life."
