Vancouver in MLS!

Vancouver was awarded a Major League Soccer franchise for the 2011 season!

Vancouver Whitecaps owner Greg Kerfoot leads the Vancouver ownership group. NBA star Steve Nash is also involved along with San Francisco Giants co-owner Jeff Mallett and Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Luczo.

The Vancouver Whitecaps play some amazing football in the USL. It is possible that the MLS club will be the Whitecaps. A sort of pay-for-promotion if you will. haha

Steve Nash is awesome and has a very interesting connection with football. I like seeing him involved... Even if he supports Spurs.

Y'know, the more I learn about the USL's relationship (or lack thereof) with MLS, the more I feel like the USL deserves better.

Portland is expected to get the other MLS franchise spot.
The Northwest will be runnin' shit! Go Timbers!
