Watch: Dax McCarty and Luis Robles playing Jenga

Thanks, US Soccer. This was a fun idea.

US Soccer did New York Red Bulls fans a big favor by getting Luis Robles and recently-ousted club captain Dax McCarty to sit down for a game of Jenga and few questions.

In a 40-minute session of block-shuffling, the two USMNTeammates and (former) clubmates takes turn answering a few questions. Along the way to the inevitable toppled tower, they take turns answering a few questions. And from those we learn of Luis Robles' nicknames ("Shoulders" is the best one he'll admit to), Dax's favorite goal (it's this one), Luis' favorite match (2013 Supporters' Shield clincher, of course), Dax's fond memory of watching Jay Z with Joel Lindpere and a great many other things besides.

And throughout, two professional athletes who keep a game of Jenga going much longer than they need to because - whatever else they might have planned to do with their time - neither wants to lose.

Nice work, US Soccer. This was a good idea, for RBNY fans at least.
