Media: Mattocks + Jamaican Flag #Whitecaps, July 2012

“Caps Achieve Lift-off” The Province Sports, July 23, 2012 with Darren Mattocks, Barry Robson, Gershon Koffie, me and brother Dan

At a July 2012  Whitecaps match vs San Jose Earthquakes, Jamaican speedster Darren Mattocks scored a big goal and, in celebration, hopped the barrier and grabbed the Jamaican flag I was waving, then paraded with it onto the field, received a yellow card for his troubles and brought the flag back – (now it is at Dan’s house?). The Province newspaper ran a photo as the cover story the next day. 

There are more artifacts of evidence of the incident (and what appears to be another match with similar outcomes) as various media outlets picked up the goodness (thanks to folks who captured and sent along for archival amusement), ergo:

Dave talks Bali United FC and Supporter Culture with Thailand’s “Ari Football Explorer”

While attending an ASEAN Cup football (soccer) match between Bali United FC and a club from Singapore, i offered a few thoughts to some documenters from Thailand who were travelling around the tournament sites making lovely video dispatches. around the 21 min mark, i riff about about supporter culture, singing, drumming and so on, plus accurately predict the final score of 3-1 for Bali United.
