    • If you watched the 'Caps win in Portland today, you'll have seen that Max learned some CONCACAF shithousery while he was away with Canada, too. Deep in injury time, protecting a one-goal lead, he suffered the most phantom foot injury you're likely to see. Still, taking no chances....get the trainers out there!
    • Whisper it quietly, but the laughing stock that was the Vancouver Whitecaps are now the best Canadian team in MLS. 
    • Think our best scenario is for Mexico to win with cards against Lozano and Jiménez, so they miss our match.  If we've taken care of CR then we'd be ahead of the US and Panama. A draw vs Mexico would ensure we'd at least be tied on points with the US after the window. Indeed we could be in a 3-way draw for second on 14 points.  This is a dangerous set of games. If we come out of this 4th that forces us into catch-up with only 6 matches left, 4 away in Central America. And final match in Panama.  What's the tiebreaker criteria again? 
    • When White scored, he seemed somewhat disconnected on the bench taking off his shoes while the rest of his team was jumping up and down in celebration
    • MLS didn't start in 2007. It had plenty of cavernous NFL and college gridiron stadia at the outset in 1996. An alternative bid for D1 status called League One America had advocated the SSS approach but the USSF rejected it. Something something D1 something something optics basically. The example provided by the surpringly good game day revenue streams that went with the smaller soccer specific Columbus Crew Stadium that Lamar Hunt moved the Crew to in 1998 arguably helped to save MLS when it came very close to folding in 2001. That was what helped inspire future expansion and made Richard Peddie of MLSE a believer in it working in Toronto after initially passing on the concept of having a team at launch in the Skydome in his previous job. The relatively low budget popup in Halifax is what is actually working for CanPL. In a similar vein, soccer only Atco Field with grass and startlingly high ticket prices for the (larger than it needs to be right now) main stand is working out a lot better for CanPL in Alberta than Clarke Stadium despite the latter being in the city itself on an LRT route. You find a way to make things work by adapting to circumstances rather than ploughing on relentlessly with an initial plan.
