There might not be a player in MLS history who made more people smile with a Tweet than Christian Dean did on Monday. But before we get to his well-placed Tweet, a little background information.
Dean is widely considered to be a likely Top 3 pick in the MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 16. The 21-year-old Bay Area native, who managed to avoid being a San Jose Earthquakes Homegrown Player, teamed up with Steve Birnbaum to form probably the best center back duo in college soccer last year. He's considered a physical power and someone who has United States national team potential.
As much as MLS fans may learn to love him for his playing ability, he's already won over a large portion of them with this tweet that hints at his signing a GA deal:
