Whitecaps FC + UVIC

July 27th, 2014
Vancouver Whitecaps FC

I get invited to a lot of events, I’m selective of which ones I attend especially because it is my own dime. Today I went to see a Vancouver Whitecaps game with UVIC alumni. We were supposed to arrive early and have a Q&A with Whitecaps COO Rachel Lewis. Rachel is an alumni of two of the three schools I attended.

There wasn’t a lot of time to network before kickoff. Perhaps if I had arrived earlier but the Sunday bus schedule is what it is. The soccer game itself was exciting with the Whitecaps unlucky to not come away with a victory. They had by far the most chances. This wasn’t the first Whitecaps game I’ve attended, not even the first Whitecaps game at BC Place. I’ve even played soccer at BC Place myself, but this was my first time in the stadium since the roof was replaced. They also updated the video screens, it is definitely nicer than it was before.

I’m not sure attending this event advanced my job search one iota, but I’ll turn it into a blog posting none the less. I just brought my iPhone and I actually watched the match rather than took selfies, so if I don’t have the best pictures, c’est la vie. I am still wearing my blue group wristband and I did spring for a premium nine dollar can of beer.

The Whitecaps scored twice, including on a penalty kick.
