    Mix,

    What did JK tell you in camp about where he sees your role with the national team and did he give you any good advice for improving your game going forward?

    Mix,

    You are my 10 year old daughter's second favorite player behind Alex Morgan. That got me thinking which, (if any,) particular player(s) were an inspiration for you?

    And/or who are your top 5 all time players?

    If you had to pick any league outside of Norway, which one would best suit your style of play?

    Why don't you realize how lame that Sting lyric is?

    (True story...at the time that song came out, I was in a band, just some guys that played out and made beer money on a typical night. Anyway, I thought that song was ridiculous and jejune, so I wrote a response song. The opening lines were

    Nuclear war would be bad
    Nuclear war would make me sad
    My whole family would die
    Then I know that I would cry

    It went on like that with silly couplets. Mix would probably be most interested in

    All my hair would fall out
    Of that there'd be no doubt
    Then I couldn't get a date
    That's a thing that I would hate

    Yes, the lyrics are stupid. That was my point.

    It ended with

    With all due respect to Sting's point of view
    You can't solve a problem in 3:22)

    Question: What are some of your interests outside of soccer/football?
    What are some of your favorite movies, TV shows, books, albums?

    [And if you are looking for recommendations: The Assassination of Jesse James, Breaking Bad, Thinking Fast and Slow, Pixies - Doolittle]

    Here are all the quotes you need: http://www.nietzschefamilycircus.com/


    Sting... Quadrophenia... coastal towns... nuclear bombs....

    I'll skip the quote indulgences . . . and ask- if YOU could pick a league to play in next year for a good team, which league would that be?

    Who were the players you looked up to as a child, trying to mimic/imitate? What were your favorite moments as a fan of the game, growing up? What shaped your soccer style/philosophy of the game?

    1. If your daughter can make sure I can stay right behind Alex Morgan, I'm content.
    2. Alexi Lalas, Ryan Giggs (before the affair), and Pirlo.
    3. Iniesta, Messi, Ronaldinho (his two peak years), Socrates and Edwin van der Sar.

    I will not think of the leauge first, when/if I pick. I would/will focus on the team/club first.
    But I think that Serie A + the Croatian top flight are the two leagues that have the most intriguing play from my CM perspective.
