    Also, given that it's -35 with the wind chill in Calgary right now, a home game is the last thing on my mind. No amount of Fireball can make that temperature warm. I'm certain Doneil Henry would have the guts to tough it out though.

    oilers000 got a reaction from hectorj in The 2016 Rio Olympics thread: August 3rd to 19th   
    Really impressed by Canada at the Olympics. Although they lost again in the semi final I think we learned that we have a really bright future past Sinclar. If you told anyone at the start of the tournament that Canada would finish first in their group and beating Germany, Australia and France along the way, they would've laughed at you. This performance from the Canadian women prove that the bronze medal in 2012 wasn't a fluke. Hopefully they can win the bronze on Friday against Brazil in Brazil which will be a tough task. However if there is anything we have learned about Brazil it is that they are beatable at home. They had to go to penalties against Austraila and Sweden. Brazil is very beatable.

    I think the CONCACAF Refereeing will be MASSIVELY reviewed!  
    Also, harsh sanctions against countries that can't control their crowds. (lasers, urine bags, racist chants...etc...)

    An open bit of advice for Victor.  Don't do the old Canadian inferiority thing of doing everything for others and screwing us to make it look like you're not biased.  I think Vic does remember the old "reggae?" band incident in Edmonton.  Not to be repeated!

    oilers000 reacted to Blue and White Army in Canada chant selection for Canada-Mexico (Fri, Mar 25)   
    Below are some of the chants that are likely to be used during Friday's match and/or the march to the stadium. Numerous others will also be used. Please see The Mother of all Chant Sheets thread for additional items.
    One of the reasons for this post is to introduce people not from Vancouver to some of the chants favoured by Vancouver capos, as well as introduce a few chants that people may not be familiar with. Feel free to belt out some of these on Thursday evening at St. Regis, and at Doolin's prior to the march/match on Friday.

    Fellow Voyageurs,
    Some of this has info in other threads and just general stuff most of you know, but below are some areas the movement could use help with.  As you know, there are many moving parts that go into making our support unified, meaningful, and quality.  Thanks in advance to those who will volunteer to help out with some of this.

     
    There will be a small group in the front of the section that is half 253 and half 254 (which has been referred to as the "Family Section") and the main group of supporters will be in the "Full 90" sections, which are 201-206 (only the 206 half that is with 204 is a part of this). These sections are General Admission, but there are some spaces that will be held for those with various roles in leading parts of the support.
    If you got your tickets through the Vs you should have received them by email by now. If you have issues, please send a note to voyageurstickets@gmail.com.
    If you would like to help make the support meaningful and quality for this match, please be in touch as there is a need for help in such areas as set up (Thursday from 2-4pm…limited number of people), clean up post match, early birds (we need a few people willing to miss the march to be in the stadium ahead of time to look after various items we'll be using to support), flag collectors (we need approximately 8-10 people to head to the 4-5 entrances at the top of the sections to make sure all the flags and poles stay in the stadium...any help in reminding people that the flags are not gifts, but are meant to be left so that they can be used again at future matches…would be appreciated as well), we need some people to help capo (we want to have 6-8 people passing things on from the main capo stand in front of the drum…one near the front of each section and one further up the section…experience is preferred), and that's probably it. Be in touch if you'd like to help in any of these ways.
    Thursday evening there is a Voyageurs/CSA gathering at the St. Regis again. It is from 7:00pm to 10:00pm…followed by a bit of pub crawl. Come and connect with some of those who will be traveling to VanCity for this match.
    Friday there is a kick about at Livingstone Park at noon. Please feel free to show up and play a fun match with people of various skills and abilities.
    The pre-game gathering will be at Doolin's starting officially around 3pm (feel free to be there earlier). The march will be leaving at 5:45pm.
    That's about it for updates. Please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
    Much Love,

    Forever A Team

    P.S. My apologies, I have not read every post in this thread above…trying to catch up on some of it now.

    I wish Tancredi knew how to put the ball in the back of the net. Every game I have seen her play, she gets chance after chance and can never put the ball in the back of the net! Canada needs to find secondary scoring from someone other than Sinclair.

    I've posted 'thank-you' threads quite a few times, but I honestly feel like it is still not enough. So here goes another one. It seems like an appropriate time given that it's close to the end of what has been such an event filled year. 
     
    First off, happy holidays everyone. I'm glad to have renewed acquaintances and added a lot more faces to online profiles this year. As a Voyageur from one of Canada's pseudo-hinterlands, I really treasure connecting with others from across the country. 
     
    Thanks first is all to Jamie and your countless hours of work on our behalf and to Pete and other Vs in Toronto. It was great coming in for GC, and additionally a fantastic experience in Vancouver. Pretty amazing how one guy can play such a huge role in events all across the country. 
    Thanks to Mike, Sergio and crew in Edmonton for all the WWC organization. Once again, it was a great experience. 
    Thanks to Zach, Massimo and many others in Vancouver for all your work and organization for WCQ. What a fantastic time that was. 
     
    Cheers all. It's been a great 2015. Here's to a fantastic 2016. 
     
    (PS - Put this in the men's forum for the most eyes to see it).
