  1. I'm in Vancouver for this weekends last caps home game of the season and just read in the local paper that the stadium employees may be on a legal strike as of Friday. Anyone know any information as to what the back up plans are?
  2. Hey all, Finally getting a chance to make use of my Caps tickets and travelling out to Vancouver next week. Was wondering if I could get some advice for two events: 1) Was wondering what downtown area pub (if any) will be showing the CONCACAF game on the 18th (small chance, but are there any TFC viewing parties planned) 2) Where would one go for the Caps pre-game pubs/hang outs/tailgates for Oct. 22nd's match? Also for those Voyageurs who I personally know in Vancouver, if you're free to grab a beer/coffee i'm free most of the week - other than doing the diplomati
  3. Was wondering of those who will be attending the game on June 7th - who is available to 'officially' speak for the Voyageurs to the media. Please msg me so I can set this up. Thanks
  4. Anyone want a pair of free tickets to the match tonight? Supporters sec. 110. I have a going away party to attend for a friend after the match, but can't show up all wet from being rained at the match, so gonna have to sit this one out. lmk if is interested by 4pm.
  5. I'm looking forward to it. -3C and sunshine (although the breeze from the lake will probably lower the temperature). TFC needs to take this one, as back to back losses to expansion teams will be hard to get up from. I think the bus from Guelph has about 20 people going today.
  6. I know of some folks in Guelph that are wanting to go and will be driving down. I am considering going myself, and will keep you posted.
  7. Updated March 17/11 as I finally got the tickets and know the price printed on them. All prices Face Value as printed on tickets. Once again I am posting some of my season tickets for sale: General rules: Must be a Voyaguer member I have 4 seats at both teams, and will only sell them in groups of pairs (no singles). Email Interact payment only (Caps tickets are only in hard copy - will either be left at will call or mailed to you) tfc tickets will only be emailed. Caps tickets are in supporters section 251 - $20/seat (Sec. 231 at Empire Field for the first p
  8. The crowd did have alot of school kids / youth soccer clubs in attendance. Similar to the Ukraine game I attended in the fall, I guess Canada isn't a big draw. I was disappointed from the response I got from inviting Canadian staff from the embassy in Athens and consulate in thessalonkia. No one wanted to join us. Oh well, we had a good time nonetheless.
  9. I have to say that the Greek fans were pretty hospitable in our section. No bad feelings during the game and a lot were surprised and commented how well Canada played and how the score was as close as it was. Although we didn't end up with a win, we can still be proud of our squad for what they did a achive against a top ten team. The pre-game tribute to former Greek coach Otto Rehagel was nice touch of class as well.
  10. Max - great article. Now I know why you missed the gathering earlier tonight at the team hotel. And for the record, we drank your beer for you Look forward to finally hooking up and seeing you at the stadium tomorrow. PS - where's finchester when we need him. Would have loved my arrival via military helicopter airlift from Athens into the Larissa local air force base earlier Tuesday morning. Beats the military escort to the washroom in Kyiv
  11. Hey everyone from sunny Athens were it is about 16C There are 11 Canadian supporters confirmed for attendance at the match. I believe the game will be broadcast live at 10am Toronto time as the game is on 5pm local Greece time. Should be a fun time.
  12. Just booked my flights....looking forward to hooking up with those at the game.
  13. I respect and admire your patriotism, but setting emotions aside, and trying to look at this from a purely business perspective, I would like to ask what does FIFA gain in return for awarding the men's WC tournament in 2026? Safety and richness are not real factors as South Africa, Brazil and Russia surely would have not passed those tests. I'm going to assume, that hosting the event in Canada by default gets you access to the US market. I worked on the 2008 Toronto Summer Olympic Bid, and we too assumed that is the case. It never happened and the IOC awarded the games to Beijing. Keep
  14. I have to admit, the big idea thinking on this thread is a real positive way of pitching it. However, I can't see it happening from both internal reasons and external reasons. Internal Reasons: I can't see any government level (municipal, provincial or federal) in the country being able to politically and financially back any type of bid within the next dozen or so years. These large sporting events, usually demands gov't finanical guarantees, and the economic reality of the Great Recession, the huge gov't decificits and the changing political priorities that this will cause will ta
  15. For those going to today's match...i'll be at Brazen Head before the game if you want to catch a drink and wager any bets - http://www.brazenhead.ca/
