We're over the midweek hump as there were a couple MLS games last night on the schedule, along with Chile outlasting Colombia to move on to the finals of Copa America.

Yesterday we looked at the PRO response to the missed own goal. They said they weren't to blame but we're not buying that for a second.
The man-bun powers may be gone for Ryan Hollingshead but he certainly had fun yesterday showing off his new hair cut(s).

We'll dive into the MLS news with FCD's opponent this weekend RSL, who had a midweek match of their own last night. They needed a strong performance late to get the three point.
I'm curious to see how NY will bounce back from this loss, as they've looked like a very determined team over the last few weeks.
Now the unbeaten streak is at 11 games for Colorado. Which is just the wildest thing when you really think about it.
LA seems to be back in that swing of games where they just look bad, even though they are missing several key players at the moment.
The wildest game of them all last night was certainly the Union-Fire game that ended 4-3. Roland Alberg looks like the real deal too for Philadelphia here.
// Copa America //
Teams like Argentina just have stars all across the pitch where as the US is really lacking some big names these days (on an international level at least). But I would say the talent gap extends much further than to the big stars.
Chile moved on last night in a rain soaked game against Colombia. Now they get Argentina in a rematch of last year's Copa final. I said it in the group stage, if there was a team that could beat Argentina, it was this Chile team.
Some would say the Colombians haven't looked nearly the same since their win over the US at the beginning of this tournament.
