Tonight is the final match of the Gold Cup tournement, the North and Central American Soccer championship, putting the U.S. against Mexico. While games between these two squads awesome always lively, we have a couple of extra factors making tonight's action relevant for us' the March is being played at the Rose Bowl, and the American side is captained by former Bruin great Carlos Bocanegra:

On the other side of the pitch, look for Mexican star Javier Hernandez, who is coming off of a debut season with Manchester United that got the attention of Soccer fans throughout Europe, as well as the adulation ofhis homeland.

The match starts at 6PM PDT on ESPN. Let's make this a special BN open thread and cheer on not just the Yanks but the Bruin captain leading the Red, White & Blue.
