Canada is a perennial football weakling. (I’m not talking about ‘American football’, nor will I ever) I’m talking about real football: football football. But this is quickly changing, regardless of Owen Hargreaves defection to England. Crappy Canada jumped 38 spots last month in FIFA Rankings. So now we’re number 56.

Not exactly a reversal of fortune but that’s a huge powermove! POWERMOVE!

Only Armenia made a bigger powermove. BIGGER POWERMOVE!!

I don’t know if that means we’ll be on the World Cup Stage come South Africa time. In fact we can be almost certain that Canada doesn’t have the talent to go that far but I’d be happy with a solid mid-30s ranking. MID-30’S!!

Let’s go Team!! Let’s strive for respectability!!
