[Author’s note: As always, many thanks to D.C. United’s communications staff for assisting in the procurement of this interview.]
Sean Maslin: What was the last good movie that you saw?
Chris Korb: World’s Fastest Indian
SM: If you weren’t a professional soccer player what would you be?
CK: Probably an auto mechanic/fabricator. Something car-related.
SM: What is your favorite restaurant in the D.C. area?
CK: Rosa Mexicano
SM: What is one thing that you will miss about RFK Stadium?
CK: The bouncing stands where the Barra and other supporter’s groups cheer from.
SM: What is one thing that you are looking forward to about Audi Field?
CK: Opening day. It’s been talked about and in the works for so long it’s going to feel surreal.
SM: Which is the better perk of being a professional soccer player: seeing people in public wearing your jersey or being in a FIFA video game?
CK: While I love seeing my friends abuse my player on FIFA I think I prefer seeing people walking around in my jersey. After all these years it still makes me smile.
SM: If you could talk to one living soccer player who would it be and what would you ask them?
CK: Pep Guardiola. I would try to get as much info out of him as I could and I can’t imagine all the stories he has over the years working with some of the best players to ever play.
SM: What is the best tifo or sign that you have seen from the D.C. United supporters through the years?
CK: My favorite United Tifo is the one a few years back for the Red Bull Playoff series. I’ll never forget the red and black background with huge white letters that read You Can’t Hold Us Back.
