It's a big day of games at the World Cup. In addition to the United States' showdown with Slovenia at 10 a.m., Germany faces Serbia at 7:30 a.m. in a game that will go a long way towards determing the U.S.' potential opponent in the round of 16. There's also England vs. Algeria at 2:30 p.m., the other game in the United States' group.

It's hard to overstate just how huge today is for the U.S. national team. A win means they could win the group outright, while a loss would put huge pressure on them to beat Algeria on Wednesday.

I'll be blogging all three games live from Tir Na Nog in Center City, where the Union are hosting their official viewing party for today's action. Come on in and share your thoughts. It should be a wild day.
