Semi-Finals Set For Women's World Cup & Copa America

Carli celebrates...

Good Day! There were a slew of fine matches over the last few days in the two international tournaments we've been following and enjoying. Things really got rolling Friday night when the U.S. beat China (up in Canada) and Argentina edged Colombia (down in Chile) on penalties. Also in the semi-finals at the World Cup are England, Germany, and Japan. Also in the semi-finals at Copa América are Chile, Peru, and Paraguay. Let's begin with the women, shall we?

Rivalry Week! That's what is was last week in Major League Soccer. Apparently, it was a success! Oh, and here are Five Things We Learned in the stateside league over the weekend.

Gosh. We've gotta go. Until tomorrow.
