Thought Trails: Copa América is coming to the United States in 2016. What does it mean?

"American fans would get to see the U.S. playing against teams like Argentina, Colombia, and Brazil in a tournament that matters. It's huge, and shows some real 21st century thinking for the two regional federations to come together like this for the good of the game.

Easy as one, two, three. Three goals from the United States men's national team and they're on their way to the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup Final. A thoroughly dominating performance by the Nats, 3-1 over Honduras, means a date with surprise finalists Panama.

Eddie Johnson, freed by a great ball from Landon Donovan, broke away from the Panamanian defense to open the scoring in the 11th minute.

Win or go home. Thems the breaks in the elimination rounds of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Gone are the comforts of the group stage where a slip up could be made up. As the United States men's national team saw (at least until Eddie Johnson walked on the field) on Sunday against El Salvador that success is perilous and advancement not always guaranteed.

Rather than pretend to understand the mind set of MLS award voters, I am developing my own awards that I believe will best tell the story of the 2013 MLS regular season. These awards aren't necessarily achievements but rather reference points that give more depth than the Golden Boot or Defender of the Year.
