And so the war deepened...

I've come to let all you USMNT fanatics know that... (exasperated sigh)... Klinsi will be answering questions at the U.S. Soccer Twitter today at 1 p.m. ET. All you need to do is add the "#AskJK" tag to be considered.

Yeah, it seems like a battle W for my arch nemesis, but I've asked that man questions - just wait until the coach feels the restraint of 140 characters. MWAHAHAHA!!

Let my Klinsi go (to a better interactive platform)!

They have a word for your kind -- Luddite. Don't be an enemy of progress, Greg!

(To be clear: I don't understand Twitter at all, but it's getting harder to deny its got its place in the news world.)

And what would a conversation on Luddites be without Thomas Pynchon?

Thomas Pynchon. Awesome. You guys are a bunch of nerds. Which is, of course, one of the many reasons I visit the site 5 times a day...

I don't find it progress, just popular. And I find it the enemy of proper news in most cases. Watching reports refer to it as source is like chewing tin foil.

But forget all that... does the world really need to have me spouting off about all manner of things all day long? Yikes.

The answer is yes, right? I think it's yes.

It's neat for someone like me, just trying to get my name out to people with a common interest (soccer).

But it does fly in the face of a lot of the good legwork the industry's supposed to be built on. So a lot of it sucks.

it did not seem like there were to many enlightening questions, or answers. although coach klinsmann when asked about his lineup for the scotland game, said it would be the best lineup based on form.

a couple questions earlier, he emphasized performance as the reason for picking lineups.

it does sound like pontius will be getting a call.

I think that was the point. He and USSF got to pick the questions they wanted to answer in 140 characters.

Would be nice to see a DCU field player out there again. It's been a while.
