Armour: Questions linger for Jurgen Klinsmann after thrilling U.S. win | USA Today World Cup

Armour: Questions linger for Jurgen Klinsmann after thrilling U.S. win | USA Today World Cup:



"Donovan may not be the player he was four years ago, when his goal in stoppage time carried the U.S. into the second round in South Africa. He may not even be the player he was last summer, when he went on a scoring spree that carried the U.S. to the Gold Cup title.

But he’s not washed up, either, and he would have been just the kind of insurance policy Klinsmann and the U.S. could use right about now. Start him or bring him on as a sub. Either way, the Americans definitely could have used his skill and savvy Monday night, to say nothing of the upcoming games against Germany and Portugal."



He was wrong to leave Donovan off team USA, and it will come back to haunt him. Not a good coach for USA...

"Behind us, more patrons materialized: locals, student types, tourists from New Jersey, Washington, Germany. Some leaned against the building’s century-old brick walls; others climbed the stairs to the lounge for a languid cocktail hour before an early dinner at Sean Brock’s famous restaurant a few yards away. We remained at the bar, sampling salty slivers of cured ham and sipping navy-strength rum sweetened with strawberry syrup. It was 4:30 in the afternoon, and we were all basking in bourbon weather."

"There are few cities that can compete with Los Angeles for the sheer energy its residents pour into health and diet trends. This town is the world leader in anxiety over what you should, and shouldn't, be eating."

"So, you're writing a children's book. How would you like $20,000 and free office space in a public library in order to help make that happen? That's exactly what The Children's Writer in Residence fellowship at Boston Public Library offers each year to an unpublished author, many of whom have relied on the library's fabulous collections to help them research and write their stories."
