A while back, Brad Evans hosted a Q&A on Twitter between fans and Michael Gspurning. He did the same thing Wednesday, but with a new Sounder this time — young Cordell Cato took the fans’ questions.

Go check out Evans’ timeline for the whole thing; Sounder at Heart has highlights.

Here are some more links:

— Could Mike Fucito be the Jeremy Lin of MLS this season? This Lin stuff really has no bounds.

Elliot Weber talked about the upcoming season of CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” recently. Why is this relevant? Well, in case you forgot, he’s on the show with his twin brother, Andrew, who’s fighting to be the Sounders backup goalkeeper.

— Chivas USA unveiled some new uniforms and Colombus announced a new jersey sponsor.

— U.S. Soccer announced a men’s friendly on May 26 against Scotland in Jacksonville. It sounds like it’ll be the first USMNT game carried on the NBC Sports Network, meaning it’s likely Arlo White‘s first national team game. The team’s first World Cup qualifier against Antigua and Barbuda will be on June 8 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The Washington Post has a good look at the upcoming schedule for Jurgen Klinsmann and Co.

— Speaking of the U.S. men, they improved in the FIFA world rankings.

— It sounds like Brian Ching is going to end up back at Houston after all. Former Colorado Rapid Caleb Folan has landed in Birmingham camp. The Whitecaps have apparently closed the deal on Scottish midfielder Barry Robson, and also has Carlos Bocanegra in their sights. Also, Kenny Cooper had a heckuva goal for New York against Estudiantes Tecos.

— AC Milan blasted Arsenal 4-0 in UEFA Champions League action Wednesday to all but clinch a quarterfinal berth. Zenit St. Petersburg beat Benfica at home, 3-2. On Tuesday, Barcelona posted a 3-1 road win at Bayer Leverkusen and Lyon beat Apoel Nicosia 1-0 at home.

— Lastly, an video from the vault, featuring Servando Carrasco, Josh Ford and Michael Tetteh in their home.
