  1. I can see it now,

    Cheering as you walk down Hamilton streets, people look at you with confusion or fear.

    Your ravings about Babouli and Simiyortis, makes you sound like your speaking in tongues as you are now in the grips of a strange new cult.

    Your rantings about virtual stadium at the island games makes you sound insane.

    You ask people to join your supporters group. They say they are not interested in your weird support group.

    People cross the street as you tell them to check your knew black bespoke kit. You wave them to come back to your side. They tremble in fear saying they are not going to the dark side.

    You show them pics of the trophy, they only see a microwave plate.

    Sooner or later you will end up talking to a doctor. He will give you a new special Jersey. Its white, very snug, and the restricted movement will prevent handball penalty calls.

    Eventually they will decide on a lobotomy. But you get the last laugh, after 20 years of watching the Canadian mens team and getting migraines your already brain dead….

    • Another epic (and awesome) comment – too good. Also, we’ve put your words out on the twitters, we couldn’t resist.

      • On Twitter… audience of millions, here comes fame and fortune!

        Decided to make the bit more simple and poetic. Was originally going to make the bit a guy talking to people about CPL and answering questions making him sound crazier each comment. Like something along the lines of answering a question about Pacific and saying this year they are playing on a island in the Atlantic but last year they played on a island in the Pacific. Or explaining that the Calgary team plays in a horse show jumping field but this year they are playing in a virtual stadium. People questioning if your making up coach names like Pa Ma do Kah or Mista.

        In another note, how is my man Giovinco doing lately? Happy and healthy? Don’t they have some Asian cup games now? A fit starting eleven will smash the competition? Need me some Saudi league news!
