Good Friday morning Caps fans. Thing suck in Whitecaps world right now—you know it, I know it and (maybe) Steve Nash even knows it #Hangtough.
But today? Today is trivia day.
That’s right, the first annual Coffee with the Caps Trivia Extravaganza (TM) begins right this very second. 14 questions, of varying difficulty, have been prepared to test your knowledge of the Whitecaps. It’ll be the honor system when it comes to cheating but you all seem like a trustworthy bunch.
You can follow this link to go test your mettle. In order to be considered for fabulous prizes (aka pride and honor), please take the quiz by next Friday at 10:30 a.m., EST/7:30 a.m. PST.
I attempted to have questions of varying difficulty but it is entirely possible they are all too easy, too hard or too dull. So please, let me know in the comments how it went in case we want to do another round at a later date.
If you would like to enter the informal competition we’re having, please enter your name or SB Nation username at the top. I’m not a Google Forms expert so there may be glitches—let me know if they cost you any points and I will take your word (scout’s honor after all).
Good luck to all and I hope this distracts us from the smoldering wreck that has become the Caps’ season.
Onto the links!
Shameless Self Promotion
We have all the sordid details on the Caps’ Voyageurs Cup defeat to Cavalry FC (hey I spelled it right!). Sam Rowan catches up with the plucky CPL side to get their take on the victory. And Ian doles out some bleak report card grades
Best of the Rest
There is a pretty compelling argument that Cavalry’s victory gives the CPL exactly what it needs: a big, heaping dose of legitimacy. So benevolent of the Caps to take one for the good of Canadian soccer imo
LAFC are reportedly spending more than the Caps’ entire payroll to fill their third DP slot, as they try to lure Uruguayanb youth international Brian Rodriguez to the City of Angles.
In other LA news, Zlatan has again escaped punishment for an elbow that fractured the skull of LAFC’s Mohamed El-Munir. The Swede then complained that he is “hunted” by opponents, which is shocking given that he’s such a modest wallflower
Austin FC have tapped former MLS striker and current USMNT assistant Josh Wolff to be their first manager, as they start to build their expansion team
USL’s Phoenix Rising are unbeatable when they run dollar beer nights promotions. Maybe something the Caps should consider—after all, it would get people to come to BC Place, right?
