Vancouver’s New Secret Weapon: Joe Cannon in Short Shorts
After a thwomping in Los Angeles, the Vancouver Whitecaps’ five-game road trip continued with a 1-0 Independence Day victory over the Colorado Rapids.
Could the secret to their shutout success be goalkeeper and soccer ally Joe Cannon’s extremely short shorts?
Cannon took some pride in his clothing choice on Twitter after the game:

But it was his backup and fellow ally Brad Knighton whose Tweet brought Cannon’s throwback style to our attention:

No complaints about the shorts here, and things won’t be any cooler at the Home Depot Center this weekend, so hopefully they’ll make a reappearance.
Well done Rapids. It’s a great idea.
