Amid a hectic schedule, the busiest Sounder recently has surely been Terry Boss, who along with backing up Kasey Keller in goal has played three games on international duty for Puerto Rico in the 2010 Carribean Championship. Here’s a sample from last week’s workload:

Oct. 2 — Played in 3-1 win against Anguilla in Puerto Rico

Oct. 4 — Played in 2-0 win against Saint-Martin in Puerto Rico

Oct. 5 — Backed up Keller in Open Cup win in Seattle

Oct. 6 — Played in 2-0 win against Cayman Islands in Puerto Rico

Oct. 9 — Backed up Keller in MLS win in Kansas City

Puerto Rico, which swept through Group A, doesn’t play again in the competition until Oct. 20. With a Sounders FC friendly Tuesday and a CONCACAF Champions League game on Oct. 19, you might expect to see him in action here as well.

After the jump is a Q&A Boss had with some reporters recently:

* * *

(On crazy travel) “It was definitely a long day but it was definitely worth it. What a great moment to come back and be here for the Open Cup, and then also being able to get a third game (for Puerto Rico). It worked out being the best of both worlds and was something where obviously the travel was long but well worth it.”

(On being an odd man out for the Puerto Rican team and response from fans) “The people are great. It’s an honor to go and play for them and something I’m committed to doing — hopefully qualifying into the Gold Cup. There are a couple of guys that played with the Islanders that got naturalized as well. I think we’re all committed to going far and doing well.”

(On getting work) “It was good. It was definitely awesome to go and get three games. Me and Kasey talk and you can only get so good in practice before you got to make game decisions and make game saves and just be in the moment. I think it was a great learning experience for me and I definitely came back a better goalkeeper.”

(Think you’ll see more time here?) “That’s up to the coaching staff. I know I’m going to go out and turn in an honest day’s work everyday and hopefully get more time. At the end of the day I’m going to control the controllables and do what I can to be out there.”
