Today is #AskOptaJack Day, fans' chance to stump the MLS statistical expert

Consider it the pre-Valentine lovefest for those of us who are more statistically inclined.

@OptaJack, the Twitter personality with more than 18,000 followers, will be spending some quality 1-on-1 time with MLS fans on Thursday, Feb. 13, at 1 pm ET.

You know that hunch you've always had about a certain player or team? Just post a tweet with the hashtag #AskOptaJack, and the MLS statistical expert will crunch the numbers and get you the answers you've been searching for.

As the official data partner for MLS, Opta has collected every on-the-ball action from every MLS game of the past three years (2011-13). OptaJack has the key to all the data, and you'll see him drop plenty of knowledge in the MLSsoccer.com buildup up to the 2014 season.

Think you can stump @OptaJack on Thursday? Good luck.
