Cannon Fodder News and Links: It's time for the Copa

News and links for Friday, June 3, 2016.

It's a mostly talk amongst yourselves edition today, but I wanted to highlight 2 things:

The politics and poetry of Copa América Centenario
Copa América Centenario is about to kick off in the United States. Is there any reason not to be cynical about the arrangement of this tournament?


So, this looks like it's going to be a pretty interesting Friday.

Who are you excited about seeing in the Copa? Are you, like me, without any optimism or enthusiasm about the USMNT's chances of doing anything other than getting beaten badly on a repeated basis? What is Aaron Ramsey doing with his hair? Do you think that between the dragon crest and the silver hair he might be going for a Targaryen thing? Is Aaron Ramsey the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains, and so on and so forth?

Thanks for another great week!
