MAILBAG: The One Where You Realize Thanksgiving Is Next Week

By Hartford Athletic, 11/21/19, 12:00PM EST


The Mailbag is BACK! Lots has happened since our last mailbag and you certainly have plenty of questions regarding what's coming in 2020! We're really excited about some things that are on the horizon that will help with your out of season Hartford Athletic fix. We'll have more info on that in the future, but for now, let's get to your questions:

Mark Z. asks Head Coach Radhi Jaïdi, "Coach, what style of play will you be bringing to Hartford?"

RJ: I can't give too many details but I can say that I’m bringing a flexible style of play that allows the players to express themselves and showcase their talent, with a lot of energy and intensity. It's a style that will really make the fans excited. I also wanted to say thank you for everyone to the warm welcome to Hartford! I'm really excited to be here and I'm ready to get to work!

@CTSoccerMike asks, "What is your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?"

This is being written right before lunch so people are very excited to talk about this. Here are some of the answers from people in our office:

"Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows"

"Mashed Potatoes"

"My mom's stuffing"

"Yeah, stuffing"

"Corn" - this is the most boring answer and this author does not endorse it, but here we are...

@bcman2211 asks, "Why do the White Sox wear black socks?"

I'll answer your question with a question. Why is Sox not spelled Socks?

Cristobal R. asks Harry Swartz, "Taking into account last seasons experience and knowledge, what are you going to try to work on this season?"

HS: Last season was my first professional season so I definitely have a lot more experience and knowledge than I had before. That said, you never stop learning and I'm excited to work with Coach Jaïdi, the rest of the coaching staff, and my teammates to develop my skills and learn a new system. It's never an easy thing to do in soccer, but we have a good group of players coming back and I'm excited to see how we all come together and fit underneath Coach's vision.

Mario B. asks, "Will you have a Black Friday Sale for merchandise?"

We will have discounts on items on our online store for the Holiday season. More information on this will be provided in the coming days.
