New, 22 comments

More Copa Americas news, MLS returns to action and what to watch on TV today.

Seahawks Twitter

Seattle

Turns out that people love rooting for the United States, even if those people aren't often soccer fans. These people are also Seahawks, which means that lots of eyes were on them.

Nick Rimando came to Seattle just so he could coach the keepers if it went to penalties. Jurgen wants him at the Houston semifinal as well. TIL that Rimando is 37, which seems old, even for a keeper, but young for a coach.

Everybody loves Clint Dempsey.

Everybody loves Seattle, Puget Sound, Cascadia.

Copa America

Mascherano is joining the chorus calling for CONCACAF and CONMEBOL to unite. It seems that players are quite enjoying the tournament.

It's hard to beat Argentina, but one way to do that would be to force them to change their pace of play.

Both Chicharito and Clint Dempsey could make history during this Copa. If they don't do it know, and they probably won't, they will likely do it soon.

World Soccer Talk provides a cutting critique of Fox's coverage of the game in Seattle. Their largest complaint is that Americans and former US National Teamers didn't lie to you and act neutral.

Jurgen Klinsmann is a poor tactician, but a great motivator. His motivation and personality are why the United States is doing well now.

US Open Cup

La Maquina is protestingthe way that LA Galaxy done did them hard.

MLS

Orlando City is coping with the emotions and impact of the Pulse nightclub murders. They are uniting behind the victims of the hate crime with an Orlando United patch on their kits.

Euros

Croatian fans hurled flares on the pitch during Friday's game. It probably cost them the match and may get the nation kicked out of the tournament, which was their goal.

Harry Kane is one of the better soccer players in the world. He got this way through a technique called "deliberate practice."
