I'm not sure I'm completely on board with this level of instanaeity with coaching information. The intrusion of compulsive electronic immediacy bothers me quite a bit. Communication is not the issue, nor is quick communication. It is the pervasive assumption that since this capability exists, it MUST be utilized.

As much as I enjoy listening to Puppione, I am not convinced that I really need to be quick-coupled to all of his pronouncements all of the time.

Your own site, clinics, articles, the extended phone calls, chatting up the sport at meets, discussion boards . . . these all provide me with more information than I can easily digest already. I hesitate to embrace the need for more-quicker-sooner as the next inevitable evolutionary step in information dissemination.

It is quite all right to call me a dinosaur, or a Luddite, or technologically challenged, or fossilized in the dark ages of communication (I even remember rotary-dial phones).

Brewer is such a liar...he doesn't enjoy listening to me at all. He gave me a B+ in Senior English.

(Incidentally, this Twitter thing is new to me, but seems pretty cool. Lots of good info out there. I will probably steal more than I share. HA!)

And I was just saying that I am probably permanently outside the loop on this one.

And by the way, Puppione was not given a grade, he had to earn it. Someday I'll have to tell the story about how he'd fall asleep on the classroom sofa.
