Who do you emulate your game after?
And how did you play?

Felt like Mbappe, looked like any other middle aged man thinking just because he watches a lot of football that he can play the game - with two left feet.

Btw, what's happening at Churchill? RBG taking over it all??

They’re making a “rain garden”. Whoever knows what this is I’d like to know.

I was riding with a MAC Geo prof tonight who thinks it is a code for “wetlands” but I’m pretty sure he’s just after more funding.

I looked rain garden up on google and I think it’s raised gardens full of shrubs. Same Mac Prof immediately is thinking about impact to Sprint map.

Hans: who’s your fave footie player of all time?

"A rain garden is a shallow garden with enhanced soils and a rock reservoir designed to collect rainwater from roadways, parking lots or other hard surfaces. They can be planted with a combination of shrubs, grasses and flowers. Rain gardens provide stormwater control at the source, or where the rain falls."

Why don’t they just use that one corner that never drains in the spring?

Interestingly in the artists renditions I've seen they aren't building one there. But this is Hamilton so nothing makes sense

Nev - I don't have anyone who stands above the rest but the World Cup in Spain 1982 made a huge impact one me and I know Zico, Socrates, Paolo Rossi and Platini were players I looked up at back then. Heroes for sure.

Earlier than my soccer watching days. I remember the 86 WC when the Canadian team looked like a bunch of grad students and almost shut down Plantini. 94 were the first real games I watched, I know you're familiar with those matches.
