Post-game Pint: vs. Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Chivas USA, 3/17/12

After the second game of the season, we are beginning to see how Rennie likes to construct his squad as there were very few changes from last week's lineup and formation. The game was hardly vintage, but I am sure the Whitecaps are more than happy to play more equally dull games (and make no mistake, it was no feast for the neutral) as long as they keep collecting wins. Let's be real though, if Jay DeMerit is your leading goal threat, it is going to be a long season. How did he, and the rest of the players do this game?

The 2012 Boulevard Awards: Week 1

Last week we set the table for the 2012 Boulevards by introducing all of the award categories and our predictions for who would take home the hardware - not to mention the bragging rights!

Media Kit: Chivas USA

Being the ugly step daughter is never a position anyone would want to be in.  Think about it for a second...you never get what you want when you want it.  You never get your first choice on boyfriends, you always get the hand me downs, and in the case of Chivas USA you always have to live in the shadow of your two better looking sisters...in this case the LA Galaxy, and their Mexican brethren Chivas Guadalajara.

Friday's Footy Free-for-All: 'Caps, TFC, Champions League, Arsenal

Who doesn't love a Friday? For us boring Monday to Friday drones, it marks the end of the work week and the beginning of the weekend. Even if you have to head to the ol' workplace on Saturday, Friday night is still usually a chance to relax, let loose, and do something fun. In the spirit of Fridays, we thought it would be a good opportunity to "let loose" by expanding our topics of discussion to anything in the world of soccer.

Post-game Pint: Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Montreal Impact, 3/10/12

We play the beautiful game for many reasons: camaraderie with your mates on the field, the thrill of a team victory, or simply for the love of the game. But sometimes the best part is celebrating, or commiserating, about the game's result with the guys you just busted your hump with for 90 minutes (give or take) over a nice pint of beer. In honour of this age-old tradition...

Camilo's Goal in Slow Motion

For all of you out there who are still reveling in the season opening Whitecaps win over the Montreal Impact, here is a pretty cool video of Camilo's first goal of the game in slow motion. It was taken by Dan Haiek, videographer for MLS, from the sidelines of BC Place. His vantage point provides a pretty cool angle to view the action. Although the cheesy music
