Watched some of the game today; just came to query why the Union has no corporate sponsorship on their uniforms

Actually, they're named the Whitecaps because an executive of the club (possibly the owner; I can't remember), while looking across the Burrard Inlet noted there were 'white caps' on the water AND the mountains. It's a fantastic name for a Vancouver based team... much more unique to the city than 'Canucks', 'Canadians' (semi-pro baseball), or 'Lions' (Canadian Football League).
