Nice looking boat, but it has a little too much freeboard for my tastes.

At least the score wasn't 7-0.

 

It could have easily been.

 

Had Argentina needed to score 8 I think they could have. US struggled at times to look like it deserved to be on the same pitch. Overall the Copa was a good showing for the US but it also showed just how far the US has to go to compete against the top teams. 

 

 

The US is mostly MLS players.  Argentina is made up mainly of players from the the top European leagues.   Their subs are better than our starters.

 

Argentina is ranked #1 in the world.  The US is ranked #31.   Getting as far as we did was an accomplishment.

I wish CONCACAF and COMNEBOL would merge so the US could take on these South American opponents all the time.

 

Supposedly the plan is for this new format (the 10 COMNEBOL + 6 other teams) to continue - before it was the 10 COMNEBOL + 2 others.

 

Between the Copa America and the start of the Euro 2016 it's been great.

35+ years ago I did alot of riding on motorcycles.  Today what with the distracted driving and the SUVs with major blind spots I wouldn't ride a motorcycle.

 

Ended up with a small convertible and am having a blast.  Instead of putting on all sorts of (hot) protective gear, I might put on some suntan lotion and a baseball cap.
