    His first Can MNT game live to see was at BMO versus Equador June 2011, 2-2 draw with mostly Equador support at BMO 
    My first game live was In Edmonton in 1994 vs Northern Ireland- not to get too preachy here ( but I will l) 
    ‘time flies as it seems like those events were yesterday !

    I was standing at the top of the section and saw you and your son walk down. Having just found out at the time that my wife was pregnant with our first child I was very happy that you guys got that opportunity. And from seeing the picture it looks like an amazing moment that I can’t wait to hopefully replicate with my kids!
    The Canadian soccer community is very small and the players have always been very approachable because of that. You have to think that as the players and team grow, moments like these, where $100M players climb into the stands to see friends, family and fans after games will be fewer and far between.

    I know some folks on here don’t like it, but the fact is that we generally DO have our shit together.  It is just that until quite recently, we have generally prioritized public health measures over many non-essential activities like spectator sports.  It has only been the last week or two that some jurisdictions are allowing large public gatherings.  Disliking the cautious approach that was taken (and which continues) is very different than claiming that we don’t have our shit together.   The reality is that policy makers simply have a different set of priorities than you do. 
    Very early on, the US took the decision that they would host sporting events despite the recommendations of many public health officials   It has been economically beneficial but is also part of the cluster of public health decisions that have led to their high case count and mortality stats.   If you are holding them up as an exemplar of public policy, all you are really doing is saying that their values align more closely with your own - not demonstrating that their approach was objectively superior.

    Yes I am…both.  Spent my early years as a Hearts supporter in Edinburgh and have lived in the UK; parents originally from Hong Kong.  Spent a couple of hours over a few beers with Spoony and Arfield at the hotel talking about Scottish fitba afterwards.

    I don’t get this hate for Herdman.  He could qualify us for the World Cup and get us to the quarter-finals and some on here would still have him fired.  Glass half-full people!

    18 months later:  If Herdman doesn’t get a win next game against Netherlands to get out of group stage of the World Cup, will he get fired?  It will honestly never end.

    While I was finding that Jono photo, it occurred to me that I don't think I ever posted the Voyageurs postgame tiki-bar photo from the Orlando trip.  So here it is!  Hope we can do it again soon.

    He's the coach, so of course the media's going to want to hear from him — when they even bother to cover the team, that is. And apparently he lives rent-free in your head for fulfilling the duties of a modern coach.
    They didn't for the Nations League games against the U.S.

    Manager Gorre;
    "Not the result we were looking for of course, and I know we're all disappointed but to all of our countrymen from the Netherlands, who gave up precious weeks in their short off seasons and flew across an ocean to be here, I say this.  The future for Suriname is bright! 
    "We move forward towards greater successes and I look forward to seeing you all again at the Gold Cup this July.  I know the resolve and commitment you've demostrated in this round of World Cup Qualifying, risking injury in the twighlight of your money earing club careers will not go unappreciated in a country you barely, if at all, know.  Together, we will show this confederation what we are made of!  What say you?!"
