Soccer rolls on into international waters, and your week will be pretty full with games. Praised be.

Yo. Good morning peoples...

There were a few too many nil-nil draws for my taste at the the Copa this weekend. But the one must see "non-goal" to discuss at the water cooler was the weekend's big howler from the Brazil-Ecuador match. It was called retroactively out-of-bounds, seconds after it slipped across the goal line. I don't know, man...

No Neymar at the Copa, except in a skybox with Justin Bieber, apparently. No Suarez. And maybe no Messi? The greatest exemplar of the beautiful game will miss tonights opener for Argentina. Get well soon, dude...

What would a summer's day be without a transfer rumor? Vardy to Arsenal is today's word. I hope it isn't s%^&. I'd hate to "get banged" ...

The US WNT got some measure of revenge on Japan for the rough 3-3 tie at DSGP by winning 2-0 in Columbus, although the game was called early due to weather. Allie Mood has the Wave's recap...

and another great piece comes from Stephanie Yang at Stars and Stripes FC...

It wasn't all bad news from the disjointed 0-2 loss by the USMNT To Colombia; TV viewership was pretty darn good...

And if you've been missing one of those wall-to-wall, wake up at 7am and watch soccer every single minute until 10pm kind of Saturdays, have no fear. 

You can start your day with Shkelzen Gashi and Albania at 7am on Saturday, June 11, then go Euro to NASL to Copa till 10pm.

God bless the beautiful game.
