You know you're a Voyageur when...

Recommended Posts

You consider contacting the Hell's Angels to track down the guy who stole the Voyageurs banner from the Canada-USA game.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

You know you're a V when.

You find yourself alone, drinking, at some sketchy bar in what can only be described as an "ethnic ghetto" in a part of town you will spend the remaining 364 days of the year AVOIDING just so you can watch a crappy, pirate-satellite feed from half way around the world in a language you will never understand whilst surrounded by the persons who's beloved national team you're quite vocally cheering against.

And at the time, given the alternative, there isn't any place in the world you'd rather be.

You know you're a V when

If in your calculations of travel expenses for Canada's next home fixture you also have to figure in an equal dollar amount of new household furnishing for the misses.

Overnight trip to Toronto for two. $1,300 airfare, hotel, match tickets and sundry expenses.

New chesterfield and love seat for the living room. $1,299.

Still cheaper than a divorce!

You know you're a V when.

Despite the fact the USA looks a lock for making a 6th consecutive trip to the World Cup Finals you can look at Landon Donavan and still feel really, really, good about being a Canadian soccer supporter.

You know you're a V when.

In the same month as you get your unexpectedly large tax return, promotion and subsequent rise at work, and the Little One's awarded a full scholarship to Queens University you turn into one completely inconsolable, miserable, fu'king prick for weeks on end because Atiba Hutchinson has been knocked out of PSV's starting 11 by "a dead leg".

Your personalized license plate reads KUSCH

You can never remember how to spell "recieved" and yet you can type Monchengladbach, Tippeligaen, and Peschisolido correctly nine times out of ten.

When you live in St. Vincent and physically go to Philips Bakery to explain the importance of his bakery to your heart.

Is that a true story? If it is... it's CLASSIC!

True story! Lived in St. Vincent during the summer of 2010. Worked for their FA. I told the guy about our shared Voyageur love and he was a little dumbfounded!

Being in a dry work camp in Northern BC (North of Fort Nelson), getting the camp manager to find the right channel on sketchy satellite TV and then starting work late to watch Canada play. Screaming out loud when Canada scores and the 2 guys playing pool....looking at you like you're insane or on drugs :)

You know you're a V when you know more about immigration laws than the immigration officers at the airport.

You know you're a V when you took a 16 hour round-trip bus ride to Montreal for a qualifier (and was in Montreal for all of 4 hours) and make it back for Sunday brunch with the girlfriend's parents. Yet you're not tired because all you can think about is Gerba hitting the post.

You know you're a voyageur when Marc Bircham's snake is not a lead-in to a juvenile sexual joke

You know you're a voyageur when a Grizzly is not a bear. It's some guy from Montreal that writes 2000 word posts on a message board.

You know you're a voyageur when a water bottle in Paul Stalteri's hands makes you nervous.

You know you're a voyageur when you know the diet and previous hairstyles of Dwayne De Rosario.

When you get to the bar 7 hours before the game to pre drink, only to realise 3 hours later that you left your ticket in scarborough and have to take a taxi all the way there and back in rush hour

When you get to the stadium late, and break into a sprint to make it to your seat in time for O Canada

When you cancel your plans on a friday night to get up at 5:30 to look for streams

When you call up that distant relative or friend you never talk to that lives in the city the MNT is playing, so you have a place to stay for free
