Well you can throw another hat in the ring for the Whitecaps’ bid to bring the MLS to Vancouver. First it was Steve Nash, then Francesco Aquilini (current Canucks owner) decides that he’s interested in bring a franchise to our fair city. Now Jeff Mallet of Yahoo! internet fame has joined the millionaires-only circle jerk.
Jeff Mallet, if that name doesn’t ring a bell than you’re probably not in his immediate family. This is the first I’ve heard of this guy, but I welcome his contribution to bringing an MLS franchise to Vancouver. From what I’ve read about this guy he owns a piece of the San Francisco Giants and is buddy buddy with the MLS commissioner. Born in North Van and raised on the island before he moved to the internet mecca of San Francisco. All this seems like it bodes well for Vancouver landing a franchise and it’s great to see local guys step up and try to bring pro sports back to this town.
Note: The Schwab is the resident blogger appointed to sports, however his efforts to this blog have yielded the lovely header on the main page. So until he gets his lazy ass off the internet porn I’ll fill in the gap (no pun intended) for the time being.
