Whitecaps Stumble Over Own HistoryAugust 31, 2010 at 2:25 am | Posted in Vancouver Whitecaps | Leave a comment
In a recent article on their website, the Whitecaps have published an error with respect to their own history. In an interview with Tony Waiters, the Whitecaps said the Whitecaps beat the Cosmos in the National Conference semi finals in 1979 at Empire Stadium in a mini-game. This is not correct.
The National Conference Semi-finals were played between Vancouver and The Los Angeles Aztecs. Vancouver beat Los Angeles in a mini-game to win that series at Empire Stadium. Perhaps that is what Waiters was talking about. They then proceeded to the National Conference finals in New York where they beat the New York Cosmos in a Mini game with a shoot out.
(Note from the Editor: The Whitecaps have now corrected their site)
