    Fun story. My youngster's name is Bennett. When he was a year or so old he, my wife and I traveled to Spain and hung out for a couple weeks at a friend's place in Malaga. While there the boy assume his Spanish alter ego: El Benito. He liked to play with a certain toy bus and really liked to 'park' it. The comparison was just too easy. Two years on and the nickname persists. Fortunately Floro's tenure doesn't.

    Flights booked - 20% off Air North sale no less, so return to the Yukon for $360 all in. Woop woop! I'm getting in on Saturday morning and I'm considering the Matt Good show at the Vogue Theatre that night. The venue looks cool but not fun, y'know? Concerts shouldn't have seating : / ...... Anybody feeling up for this? Or has anybody seen a show here before?

    Boom - ticket ordered. Super excited to be coming down for this as it will be my first Canada match since 2008 (vs Estonia in Tallinn and the Jamaica WCQ in Toronto).
    Also, the ticket ordering process is super smooth. Well done. It seems way easier than folks mailing cheques to my dorm room in Ottawa prior to the WCQ series vs Belize in Kingston, and then me having to snail mail the tickets out prior to the games.

    Hume vs Spain in the U-20s was pretty darn good, too. He hit the post right afterward from distance, too. Youtube
    Other quality strikes
    - Sandro Grande vs Spain Youtube
    - Radzinski's brace (especially the second, a stoppage time winner) in a vintage performance for Everton. Youtube

    Varsity Tyler got a reaction from gator in We've lost Jarrek! :(   
    I am absolutely shocked to read of this tonight.
    I remember back to when I was quite a bit younger - maybe 15 or 16 and heading to Lynx games at Varsity. A few times Jarrek would drive me down to the city to catch the games. I remember he had a black 300 ZX, which 15 year old me thought was hot shit. Part of 33 year old me still feels nostalgic toward it ; ) ......... I also remember the countless hours he put into building and fostering the soccer supporters community within Toronto, and by extension and Canada as a whole. I lost touch with him over the past years, but fleeting views into his life always showed him as a true family man, and generally a guy of top character. Just as I remember him. Bummer.
    RIP Jarrek. My condolences to his brother Pawel - who was also part of those early days - and to Jarrek's young family.

    I have met Morgan before. At the time (2001) he seemed to be in a logistics and organizational position, helping me arrange ticketing and access to meet with the team in Cairo. I don't feel like he is in our "technical director" type role.
