Paul Stalteri injured himself with 25 minutes remaining to avoid being the only player to take part in the entire shit festival that has been Canada's WCQ campaign.

Oh yeah, Canada lost 3-0 in a match that turned out to be meaningless for both teams because Honduras beat Mexico.


Like a little bit of dijon mustard on a turd sandwich . . . I celebrated my 200th post yesterday. This number doesn't include a few earlier efforts that ended up on the virtual scrap heap. The accomplisment is meaningless, of course, and the number is not likely to grow quickly now that Canada's men's national team is done with meaningful soccer for the next few years. Though several post-mortem pieces are sure to come.
