Copa America Starts Tonight: Euro2004 had all the glitz, all the media coverage. But I bet you that the Copa America is more exciting. It may not have full strength squads, it may not have the world superstars, but it has a exciting quality all its own.

Plus, it's on for free in almost the entire USA.

In the US, matches will air on Univision or Telefutura with Spanish-language commentary. But I would like to see some of this, maybe will give it a shot over the weekend even though Spanish commentary completely throws me.

I dunno...can't really get into it. I'll give it a try, but today was Columbia vs Peru right? I watched Dirty Rotten Scoundrels instead...

Is the U.S. potentially involved in this? I see that they're not in it now - were they knocked out in earlier stages or something?

The US was invited to participate along with Mexico, but declined (to focus on getting ready for World Cup qualifying which resumes in August). The South American confederation then invited Costa Rica I believe.
