Pondering my beer choices, I don't think I like a single one from a Copa America nation but my own.

I can't do it. Watched too much FS1 pregame. I. I Believe. I Believe I Can't Watch This With Guilt.

U.S. 2, Argentina 1 (Wondolowski).

We could play this game 10 times and never get a good shot on goal. Men and boys.

Ever since they came back out of the locker room for the 2nd half of their opening match against Chile, Argentina has been head and shoulders better than everyone they have played. US might have been marginally better if we weren't missing the suspended players (maybe we would have gotten a couple of shots on goal or something), but we were facing a mountain. I'm hoping that the Chile team that crushed Mexico the other day can put up a fight in the final, but I'm not even sure about that--and I think Chile is a really good team.
