Soccer Gold Cup Group Stage: USA vs. Belize, 11:00p.m. (Fox Soccer)

Not to be a pessimist, but the Gold Cup is probably the biggest title the US has a real shot of winning in the four-year World Cup cycle. Every game in this tournament so far has been highly entertaining, especially last night's El Salvador vs. Trinidad & Tobago tilt.
