#daveo50 ~ 2015 / passport

Project: Upon turning 50 years old on August 16, 2020, Dave Olson (me, hello) is posting a photo (or maybe photos) a day / per year – starting with 1970 with intent of chronicling existence through various primary evidence sourced from studio portraits, class photos, ID / passport photos, or occasionally other “casual/group/random” shots when the above don’t exist in my archive (note: not “artificial intelligence,” really me, pulled from shoeboxes, journals, wallets and whatnot – diligently scanned and dated via glasses and haircuts, lightly annotated).

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:

Diary: Supplements, Pancakes, Whitecaps

For the record, along with pancakes, I’m taking B12, B complex, beta glucan, coenzyme Q10, D3, Lutein, magnesium, fish oil, K2 & 50b cultures

The secret for awesome pancakes revealed: use self rising flour and a splash of Pilsner and don’t make them all thick.

Making my long awaited return to cheer on #WhitecapsFC.

If I’ve learned anything from @SedSimon, it’s to eat pancakes on big days. Mixing up a batch now with blueberries.

I’m not match fit yet but medically stable and looking forward to three points! Feeling super grateful for support of friends and feeling of improving #healing #Grateful #friends #love #patience
