VIDEO: Flyover of Fly-Assed Vancouver MLS Stadia



Oh to be a modern-day MLS expansion club. You get to build on the back of the achievements of the teams who came before you and you get to keep your original name -no weird "Your name is Toby*"-period a la the San Jose Clash. You also get fresh-to-death temporary stadiums built for you to tide you over until the renovations on your downtown enormodome are completed. My how things have changed from the days of Lockhart Stadium and the Fusion expansion.

*You may need to watch Roots to get that.

Wow. Very jealous as a Chicago supporter. Wish we could've squeezed a stadium in a bit closer to the hustle and bustle.

Looks way too big. Their temporary home of Empire Field looks gorgeous.

All this while DC plays in a toilet. Really depressing.

Can't wait to see a game up there as a visitor. I truly believe that in ten years the Sounders-Whitecaps rivalry will be more intense than the Sounders-Timbers rivalry.

Why ten years?

Remember...the roof lowers to cover the upper bowl for MLS games.
