Friday Afterschool Special: Copa Cabana

The Copa America Centenary tournament begins today. Sixteen teams from North and South America will compete in 10 cities across the United States, and some of the biggest names in the game will be on American soil — including Messi. Argentina and Mexico are the favorites to win the competition. But it should be exciting all the way through the final match on June 26.

But if you only have time for a little bit of soccer this month, here are the games you need to watch:

With that outcome, you’d think the Cavs would be the ones with a reason to want to break stuff. But you’d be wrong. Because Golden State coach Steve Kerr totally had some frustration to vent, and he took it out on a defenseless clipboard.

Mamba Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts!

Didn’t take long for Kobe Bryant to find his first post-basketball job: Ghostbuster! Maybe he can capture the evil spirits haunting LeBron’s squad right now…

Just Keep Swingin’

It might look like this baby is terrible at baseball. I like to think that he’s just perfecting the world’s most complex stance windup. #optimist
