You fly 3000 miles to see Canada play only to see them **** the bed. You vow to never ever to fly 3000 miles to see Canada play again.

6 months later and a week before the next game and you are looking up airfare prices.

You cringe and cover your eyes every time Gerry Dobson says "Canada hasn't beat the USA since 1985" and Craig Forrest says "We haven't had a clean sheet against the USA since 2002" just as the Americans are lining up to take a shot...

You know the menu at Philip's bakery.

You also know the complete list of Canadians that chose to suit up for other nations.

You still have Wyn Bylotte on ICQ.

You're not sure if there even is a Czech fifth division, but you know it's superior to any North American league.

You can't hear the word "Unbelievable" without finishing the sentence, in Gerry's voice.

You've done unexpected snow removal duty in Estonia.

You have an exam the next day, but you spend time watching the Canada/US game and check the forums to see if a stolen banner was recovered.

Exactly what I did too :P!

If you are ever near the Kingstown Library down in St. Vincent you know exactly where to get something to eat.

You hold your scarf up for the anthem at the Jays game as people look at you like you must be in some weird cult

You realize that "Bundesliga.2 scoring leader" doesn't make other people as excited as you

You waited in that beer line at Maro

You are convinced that the Wikipedia entry stating that Richard Hastings scored only ONE career goal for Canada must be the victim of some mean-spirited conspiracy as you have watched him score at least three dozen times in a Canada shirt.

You have attended Voyageurs Cup matches on free tickets left for you at the door by a man halfway across the country whom you've never met and whose named you have never been told.

Your "to kill" list has three names on it: Ruiz, Suazo, and that Polish guy who stole all your scarf money.

You've made nearly ten posts on this thread alone in the past seven hours.

You were torn between Mobilio and Forrest for your first born child's name, but you eventually went with Forrest since you couldn't say Mobilio without shouting like Vic Rauter at the top of your lungs.

You saw the last "Canadian" to play in a World Cup literally in your own backyard and wished that he would trip and break his leg in three pieces.

Excellent!

What is the story with the V Cup match tickets? I'm intrigued.

You and some guy from Malawi are the only two people watching Canada take down Haiti at the 2002 Gold Cup on a small TV with no sound at the back of a bar while everyone else is watching a meaningless Oilers/Mighty Ducks tilt...
