    Details on my attending today's York United FC's team practice today.  (No photos nor individual player details as agreed with team officials so I could stay).  
    However I've included the latest pictures of the stadium renovations.

    I was talking to my ticket rep (York United FC) today.  OneSoccer is NOT part of any SSH package this year.  He can only speculate but he believes that is true for all of the CPL teams.   (A different rep was uncertain of what the policy would be just two weeks ago).  
    However the package that York has come up with for SSH (three year packages) as a "Sorry for the four home games played in Winnipeg" is immediately two different team scarves, two team jerseys (my choice was one green/blue and one 'community ie the white one), four tickets to any game (better than 2019 when I only had one game to choose from), plus $120.06 credit to my account (which was the price of the 'lost' games) with various choices to spend it or let it ride.  
    Delivery time of all this is before York's first GTA home game.    
    Also as far as the rep knows, York has not trained yet and may leave for Manitoba early to start training. 
    I had detoured by Ontario Soccer Centre Monday morning and found the parking lot almost empty and the field locked up.  News later in the day said Ontario gov had still not budged from the no team sports rules.  No wonder the team might leave early!

    Today's Toronto Star story about Ontarians looking to other cities to get vaccinated had a picture of Sparx, the Forge FC mascot in a photo for the story! More coverage than the entire league ever got in the sports page! https://torontostar.pressreader.com/toronto-star/20210519/textview       That's page A6 for those with access to the printed paper or the epaper.  They don't know the mascot's name but hey, a walking orange flame carrying a hammer getting an oversized needle from a masked nurse in the parking lot is certainly memorable.

    A short film about that weekend.  
    Only disappointment was it is only 6 minutes. I'm on camera twice for about three seconds total (red toque) plus four voice overs. Not saying I deserve more time if only that long but the owner and players stories could have made it 60 easily!

    It wasn't all about hockey.  A civic pride for Brantford too!  
    He also held an 'ambassador' role with Brantford Galaxy of the CSL. Here he is at the championship game in 2010 giving out a trophy (fourth pic down) http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports/10csl176.htm and being interviewed for a local soccer show. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports/10csl175.htm Galaxy won in their 1st year!
