Whitecaps tonight: it's soccer/football time

834jpeg300I blogged about buying season tickets to the Vancouver Whitecaps Football Club [wcfc], Vancouver's soccer team and today is my first game  [mbv].  So tonight after work I'll be taking the Skytrain from Metrotown to Patteson station and then walking to the corner of Kingsway and Boundary for some footie action.

The game is against the Toronto Lynx, whom I can only assume are rivals to the Whitecaps on par only with the Seattle Sounders and Hitler.  Okay so I'm not particularly well informed about the club yet, but I'm looking forward to the game and catching up a bit on the team and the league that they play in.  I'm not quite ready to start using the word "we" to refer to the team, as in "We're already near the top of the table."  For now rather than inserting myself into the team when talking about them I'm going to be a bit more objective.

The Canucks have hurt me this season.  No more identifying with sports clubs for me.  At least until it looks like we're going to win something.  Errr....  I mean them... the Whitecaps.
