What we’re thinking, what we’re watching, what’s coming on the blog today and the RASNoD (Random American Soccer Name of the Day). Setting up your day in soccer …

Birthdays of Note: Former U.S. international Eddie Lewis turns 38 today. Two World Cups (2002 and 2006)? Yeah, not too bad at all.

Ahead on the blog today*: Some U.S. Open Cup thoughts, and we’ll keep the Kenny Dalglish pot simmering for a while, too.

What we should all be watching on TV: Monterrey and Santos meet in the first-leg of their Mexican league final (9:50 pm ET, Telefutura). Warm-up for it by catching the Women’s Champions League final, Lyon vs. Frankfurt (Noon ET, GolTV)

Twitter daps: D.C. United midfielder Perry Kitchen ‏(@PerryKitchen23): Great win! Awesome effort from everyone. On to the next one.

Journalist Kyle McCarthy (‏@kylejmccarthy): That scurrying sound you hear? MLS sides scurrying to make contingency plans for USOC. Great competition, but a logistical headache.
