W-League: Dear Vancouver If You Please

leave a comment »

I’ll be the first to say that I am not a fan of Vancouver the city. Granted, my first and only visit only lasted 45 minutes, as my family spent most of the time in Richmond, where the citizenry irritated me to no end and I was never so happy to be an American than while I was languishing in British Columbia. I was so happy when we crossed back into Washington State, and when we arrived in Seattle it was SUNNY (yes, sunny), and that is how I know Canada hates me back.

But I would be very happy if Vancouver got a WPS team, and there are good reasons why they should. Among which is that it seems to be a rite of passage for the Canadian women’s national soccer team players to spend a season or several for the Vancouver Whitecaps, which is a very talented team in its own right (hell, it’s probably better than the beleaguered Atlanta Beat before it became the Atlantica, haw haw!). They could definitely make the jump to WPS if they had TEH MONEYZ. Rich Canadians please take note.

Another good reason is this:

YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS IN THE WPS

Yes, I realize the kit is adidas and MLS. PUMA TAKE NOTE THIS IS WHAT THE KITS SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

Edit: I mean we want Kara Lang in the WPS, not the kit.

A closing thought: if Canada had a WPS team, it would be interesting to see whether Americans would count as “internationals” as they do here. Certainly more Canadians would be able to play in the WPS.
