Well, after so many, many years of heartbreak the Vancouver Whitecaps finally won the Voyageur's Cup.  Obviously, that's the big news in Whitecapsland this week, so in Part 1 (1'-29') we discuss the historic win.

In Part 2 (30'-61') the guys look back at the 1-0 win over FC Dallas last weekend, talk some WFC2, open the mailbag, look at the MLS playoff picture and a lot more.
