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.

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.
