    U.S. Advance to the knockout round of the Copa America Centenario (special 100th anniversary of the premier South American tournament) after going 2-1-0 in group play. Probably will face Brazil in the next round. But we'll be at home and Brazil hasn't being tearing it up lately (and will be without star striker Neymar who skipped the tournament to train for the Olympics).

    Can we make it the the semis?

    Update: with Costa Rico's upset win over Colombia, U.S. Advance in first place in the group and probably avoid Brazil in the next round and will probably face Ecuador.

    Update number two: Brazil completely out after losing to Peru on a controversial goal that looked like a clear hand ball.

    Why not talk about something else for a bit? The U.S. men played Honduras tonight in World Cup qualifying in San Jose, routing them 6-0.

    Clint Dempsey back after a year with a heart condition with a hat trick, now two goals away from Landon Donovan's all-time scoring record. 18-year-old Christian Pusilic (son to two GMU soccer alums) continues his meteoric rise with a dominant performance in midfield (1 goal, 2 assists, and responsible for our first goal with a fantastic run and deflected shot even if he doesn't get credit in the box score).

    It was Bruce Arena's first meaningful match as coach after Jurgen Klinsmann was fired. I don't think you can argue with the results.

    Next match is away at Panama on March 28.
