What I’m reading and writing, May 26

• The immediate — and sometimes consternated — reaction to the unveiling of the U.S. World Cup team prompted Pitch Invasion proprietor Tom Dunmore to proclaim this “the first Twitter World Cup.” (Disclosure: I’ve been a contributor to his site, which explores the culture of soccer).

• At my own site, Atlanta Soccer News, I offered up a quick look at the 23 men who will soon travel to South America, including local hero Ricardo Clark, and linked to an early analysis of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids. Atlanta is included in the official U.S. book, with a decision coming from FIFA in December.
