    MrsC got a reaction from Fussball_eh in Buchanan nominated for 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or   
    I was surprised that she got nominated but it isn't completely crazy.  Her performance at the World Cup was remarkable for a 19 year old.  Is she one of the 10 best players in the world right now? No.  But FIFA often makes head scratching decisions, and this one is less crazy than most.  I find it interesting that some people are sugesting she shouldn't be on the list but I haven't seen anyone suggest Ramona Bachmann shouldn't be there and Kadeisha beat her for the Young Player award at the WWC.  Right or wrong, FIFA seems to have based this list on WWC performance rather than the full of year of play and I think Kadeisha was better than Ramona Bachmann over the entire tournament.

    I waited until my second day to ask, but I was given the Ok to have the time off so I just paid my deposit.  Woohoo!

    I start my new job on Monday -- as long as they give me the time, I am in.  I think it will just be me though.  Is it rude to ask for time off on my first day  ?

    Just say "I need the week off... for Canada." Irresistable.

    Ok.  The ticket is his.  If he sends me a direct message I can transfer the ticket to him through Ticketmaster.

    I would like to second that.  Mike especially was so great.  As if it wasn't enough to pick me up at the airport and show me around the city, he introduced me to everyone and invited me to sit at his table when he saw me sitting alone at the pre party.  Mike I owe you a drink (or two) at the next game we both attend!

    MrsC got a reaction from LeanneMac in NWSL Season   
    My trip to Chicago was fun.  A friend from Portland that I met at the 2013 Championship game in Rochester picked me up at my hotel.  When I came out to meet her several of the Thorns were in the lobby waiting for their ride (Christine Sinclair, Tobin Heath, Nadine Angerer, Allie Long and a few others).  Some guy was trying to get them to sign photos and they were a bit grumpy about it so we didn't bother them.  We met up with the Chicago supporters group before the game for some tailgating.  They are a fun group -- I would recommend reaching out to them (Chicago Local 134) if anyone is thinking of seeing a game in Chicago even if you are supporting another team.  Now I have a group of Chicago supporters camping in my backyard during the world cup.
     
    There ended up being about 15 of us cheering for the Thorns and it looked like we were in for a rough ride after those two early goals.  We were all pretty excited when Christine Sinclair scored and we did a lot of singing and chanting for the duration of the game. I could barely talk the next morning so I think that is a sign of a good time.
     
    This is the third time I have seen the Thorns play in Chicago.  I have also seen them play 3 times in Rochester. Sahlen's stadium in Rochester is a good environment to watch a game but I really like spending my money in Chicago because I see them as a bit like the little engine that could.  They have a real uphill battle with the field being 50 minutes outside of Chicago, and not reachable by transit but they are fighting a good fight.  Last year I had arranged for my kids to be photographed with Karina Leblanc and their General Manager would answer my emails within minutes, even late on a Friday night.  At the game I met some other Canadians and we ended up chatting with the team owner (Arnim Whisler).  He offered to drive them back to their hotel when they mentioned that it was difficult to get out there!  They don't check your bags or pat you down when you enter the stadium so you can smuggle in cans of alcohol. This came in handy because I was asked for ID when trying to buy alcohol but I hadn't brought any with me. 
     
    I hope to get to a Portland home game (maybe this year if they host a playoff game) but it is really fun supporting the team at away games.

    Never mind.  I see that the front page has been updated and bought my tickets.  I am happy to see there will be a bus from Peterborough because I will be visiting family in Peterborough and was going to rent a car to drive to Toronto.  I am all in for that bus trip!

    MrsC got a reaction from admin in WWC Ticket Update (almost)   
    I saw a great deal on flights from Winnipeg to Edmonton today, so I jumped on it.  It will be a whirlwind trip to Edmonton for me (have to get back to Winnipeg for the start of matches here on the Monday), but I am in for the first match against China.  I need the summer to hurry up and get here already!

    I wish I was going to the Winnipeg game.  I used to live in Winnipeg, so I gave it some serious thought but I can't get that period of time away from work.
