  1. The Stampeders! Canadian AM radio gold. I think almost every K-Tel album had a track from The Stampeders. Good idea. I think I'll play nothing but Canadian bands in the car today ...
  2. I absolutely know how you feel. Never liked Honduras. Never! They get all the breaks: the refs (Archundia!), the corruption (who declares a national holiday to harass the Canadian team in their hotel), the heat, etc. I'd rather cheer for Costa Rica or even Panama than Honduras. I'd even take great joy in seeing Honduras crash and burn in all past World Cup matches. I also hope TODAY is the day we wipe out the damages of four years ago. I hope this is our time.
  3. Nicolino's on Pembina is confirmed for Winnipeg V's! See you all there at 4 pm on Friday. I'll have the usual roster sheets for reference.
  4. Winnipeg Viewing Party will be confirmed tomorrow. Most likely it will be Nicolino's on Pembina, as they have hosted and accommodated the V's for the past matches, including the Olympic matches involving our bronze medal-winning women's team.
  5. Nice turnout for Winnipeg at Nicolino's last Friday! About 35-40 people came to watch; despite the result and short notice, lots of new fans! For Tuesday night, Nicolino's on Pembina (2077 Pembina Hwy) will again host Winnipeg V's. Hope to see you there!
  6. Doug, Nicolino's on Pembina will open just for us on Friday night! so for Winnipeg: Nicolino's on Pembina - 2077 Pembina Hwy. They are normally closed for Good Friday, but because of the Canada match they'll be open for us V's!! See you all there.
  7. Hey Jamie, care to print these for the V's? Copyright is ours anyway.
  8. I know what you mean. Nicolino's have been good to us, and will offer sound for our match right after.
  9. Yeah for most places, but Nicolino's has always been good to us. Besides, we have some "pull" there. Reservations for 9:30 pm, kick off will be about 9:45. Whatever, they'll show both gigs.
  10. Absolutely welcome. Hopefully the turnout will be good; we had about 22 last time. There's a Jets game, but we'll head on down right after.
  11. We have scheduled Nicolino's on Pembina for Winnipeg, starting 9:30 pm. The game will be shown, but the sound will be on right after the Jets game. I'll be at the MTS Centre too, but we'll head on down to Nicolino's after the hockey game.
  12. I would agree, but really, based on past history with Latino refs (especially Archundia) it could have been worse. While he could have dished out more yellows, I'm glad no phantom calls were made in the box that normally goes against us. Playing in that f-upped pitch was a disgrace. It's almost like when Canada played in Estonia under poor playing conditions: getting a point is not a bad result.
  13. I meant Shaw Direct. Either way, they have SD and DirecTV commercial, so we're set.
  14. Nicolino's (2077 Pembina Hwy.) will be showing the Canada-El Salvador match in Winnipeg, whether or not it's on BeIn Sports, TLN, or TSN. They have BeIn Sports on Shaw and DirecTV, so we're covered. Thank you to those 21 who joined us for the Honduras match; hope to see you (and others) for the Tuesday match! And yes, this is CONFIRMED! Our tables are reserved!
  15. Nicolino's (2077 Pembina Hwy) is confirmed for Friday evening for all Winnipeg Voyageurs. See you there!
  16. Is the match on EWS? It's not being shown so far...
  17. For the 2004 WCQ against Honduras, Mexican referee Archundia burns Canada with TWO phantom calls. One denied Hutchinson a go-ahead goal. Canada ties both Honduras games, missing the Hex with the fewest points. I can recall others, including the phantom offside against Canada in the GC2007. Too painful.
  18. So that's a good job of scouting and increasing your country's player pool. Canada has to do the same. Jamaica has also played a lot, including Copa America. Perhaps our preparations was not enough considering our player pool. Time to learn from our experience and prep for WCQ.
  19. I voted for Jakovic, with Edgar a close second. There was no problem with his play, and when he lost possession, got it back quickly. David Edgar was a very steady force at back; probably why Canada only conceded one goal. Kryikos (?) Stamatopolous was a pleasant surprise with his play and selection (Wasn't he third or fourth in the goalie pecking order in 2007-2010?), but there were times he tried punching the ball during set plays instead of catching it. Some nervous moments, but nothing too terrible. Canada's offence has its problems with its corners or set plays, or headers
  20. At the start of the Gold Cup I was hopeful that at most, we surprise a few people, reach our goal of getting past first round, AND scoring some goals. With this exit, I've resigned myself to the following: (1) We are confirming our FIFA ranking. Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and Panama have progressed. We regressed. (2) Our players are not that good. But some are very promising (Larin,Akindele, Osorio, Teibert), and some are solid (Jakovic, Edgar). (3) We have a long way to go, to play a good complete match. Floro needs to schedule camp and get lots of friendlies to refi
  21. Winnipeg's viewing party for the match against Costa Rica will be at Nicolino's on Pembina. This is confirmed, as of today (Monday). Hope to see you there!
