    Found this ad on Craigslist... WTF.

    Soccer equipment for homeless soccer league

    Not too sure what to make of it... perhaps we should just feed the homeless, not send them to Australia...

    Seems a bit weird to me... comments?

    Well if the NDP were in power, there would chauffeured coaches awaiting them.

    But I assume they all play at pigeon park.

    I heard about this a couple years ago. It is for real and apparently quite competitive. I don't know how legit this craigs list posting is however. Next thing you know handicap people will be competing in sports...handicap people playing sports :rolleyes:

    Girth, all their games are away...and with no jerseys, they don't have to worry about the home team having to change.

    No... they qualify by presenting their cardboard sign. Applicants are asked for their address so they can be contacted and picked up by the peddle-express shuttle. The options for "address" are multiple choice. "Granville Bridge", "Burrard Bridge", "Cambie Bridge" or for the FVSL'ers "Surrey Central".

    They use two strands of copper wire, 1 crack pipe, visual evidence of at least one version of Hep and you need to have a rolled up Vancouver Sun for shin pads as the basic entrance fee.

    My team is currently looking for sponsorship... I sent them out to Newton Athletic to get the wire started and then over to Peace arch's post-pak win dressing room to get the hep. Still working on the pipe and a sun subscription (Hard to find.. who the fack reads that 12" x 52" paper?)
