The Euros are still grinding on as the group stages wrap up, but the main event today for most of us can only be one thing: the United States vs. Argentina in the semifinals of the Copa America.

With the greatest player in the world, Lionel Messi (Sorry, Christiano Ronoldo), on one side — plus some other pretty good players — and a depleted but organized USA on the other, tonight’s match has all the makings of a slaughter.

But what if the USA gets a result?

Wouldn’t that be something?

Either way, with the absence of Alejando Bedoya, Jermaine Jones, and Bobby Wood, there is a much stronger possibility that Darlington Nagbe could actually get on the pitch. Even if Klinsmann gives the start to his brigade of geriatric try-hards — Kyle Beckerman, Chris Wondolowski, and Graham Zusi — Nagbe has to be at least a sub, right? Right!?

Anyway, we might as well mention the Euros while we are here. There are four matches being played this morning as Groups C and D play their final matches of the group stage. Group C will start us off at 9:00 a.m. as Northern Ireland — surprisingly still alive in the group — take on Germany and Ukraine take on Poland. Then, at noon, Croatia take on Spain and the Czech Republic take on Turkey to finish off Group D.
