One of the biggest stories out of Sky Blue FC in 2016 was the announcement of the return of Tasha Kai to pro soccer.
Kai’s return to Sky Blue provided some much-needed experience and leadership to a team that largely relied on rookies this past season. Her willingness to put her body on the line for the sake of the attack, making huge leaps to get her “coconut head” on the ball at all costs, proved just how fierce of a competitor she truly is.
However, it was her humor on and off the field that endeared her to fans of Sky Blue and women’s soccer all over the country. That humor was often put on display in the form of Kai’s Twitter account, which was also brought back in 2016.
In honor of Kai’s return to Sky Blue and social media this year, here’s a look back at Tasha Kai’s top 10 tweets of 2016.
