On the Sidelines with Chris Pontius
April 25, 2011 | Talk of the Town
My favorite place in DC is... Circa at Dupont. Good food, and a good scene all around
I hate it when... people touch other people’s feet. I just hate feet in general.
My proudest moment was... either winning a collegiate National Championship or scoring in my first-ever MLS game for DC United.
I’m honestly afraid of... scary movies—all of them. Any kind of horror movie scares me: Saw, The Hills Have Eyes, all of them.
If I weren’t a player for DC United, I’d... probably try to play another professional sport, like golf. I’m terrible at golf, but it seems like a very relaxing sport.
Someday I hope to... live in another country.
The best advice I’ve ever been given is... surround yourself with good people at all times.
My biggest pet peeve is... when someone says, “I have to tell you something,” and then they come back and say, “Actually, I can’t tell you that.” I can’t stand that.
To me, DC is... a very diverse city with a lot of history.
If I could have dinner with anyone in the world, it would be... Mila Kunis. She’s recently single, and she seems awesome. She’s got it all.
