VIDEO: Vancouver Whitecaps hold team-wide ping pong tournament in KC hotel | THE SIDELINE
Honduras vs. Scotland is a soccer game that's probably not destined to take place at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the 2018 World Cup in Russia, or probably even the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Which is, of course, why ping pong was invented.
The Vancouver Whitecaps completed a cross-continental, two-game road trip on Wednesday night with a 1-1 draw against Sporting Kansas City, which came on the heels of a 1-0 victory at D.C. United on Saturday. As you do when on the road, the Whitecaps like to keep themselves entertained any way they possibly can.
And sometimes that means a team-wide ping pong tournament in the team hotel commons area. The aforementioned Honduras versus Scotland showdown took place in the tournament final with midfielder Johnny Leverón and forward Kenny Miller mowing down the competition on their way to the unlikely national team showdown.
Leverón gave Miller the business in the final — much as we suspect Honduras would do in the real life soccer grudge match — and can also boast in training the rest of the week of taking out Whitecaps head coach Martin Rennie in the semifinal.
It's no wonder the guys looked in such good spirits the night before a big game; the Whitecaps are a surging team in the Western Conference with a 4-1-4 record in their last nine MLS games.
