1. Have you seen Darlington Nagbe's spectacular goal for the Portland Timbers? If not, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR! He is a rookie out of Akron, born in Liberia, and this goal is SUPER!
2. Copa America is well under way..Brazil and Argentina were disappointing in their openers (Brazil tied Venezuela 0-0, Argentina tied Bolivia 1-1), but both have loaded rosters and surely will play better the next time out, right? Argentina plays Colombia Wednesday in what should be a fun match. Where have you been watching? What are some good local spots to watch Copa? Who do you think will win? Brazil? Argentina? Colombia? Someone else?
3. The average MLS attendance last week was 21,115. Impressive.
4. The 4-2 loss to Mexico was a bummer for the US national team in the Gold Cup final. One bright spot: Alejandro Bedoya, local midfielder out of Weston, plays pro in Sweden...his stock rose. Look for him to be a regular on the road to the 2014 World Cup.
