Win puts us top half of the standings.

Another goal by Gilly Grot gives us the win and puts us tied for second place. Record is 1 loss and two wins. Saturday is our next gane vs Mypa.

FC Inter 1-0 Jaro

Team update

Our first game we traveled to Mariehamn to play IFK Mariehamn. We had to travel by boat becasue its a small island between Finland and sweden. Unfortunately we did'nt play well at all and lost that game. Our second game we played at home against Mypa (where My friend Tosaint plays) and were leading the whole game until they tied they game up 1-1 in the 90th minute...we thought that was it but out of nowhere in the 94th minute a goal from Gilly gave us the are a few pictures of us traveling and the stadium in mariehamn.


The Golden Arches is recognized all over the world by billions of people....Since Kids we related that BIG yellow m with the good tasting burger, incredible fries and ofcourse the toy that came with every Happy Meal. As you get older you graduate to other meals like the BIG Mac and the McChicken...McDonald's also reinvents themselves generation after generation...growing up I remember having 50cent vanilla ice cream cones, apple pies and personalized one point they even had potato weddges as well (soooooo good) they have the Mcflurry with a bunch of flavours and they have cherry pies and blueberry pies, they have chicken wraps and a whole bunch of other stuff!! McDonalds has been around forever and for that I'm thankful haha every country I've been to I try to have McDonalds just to see how it tastes (and yes there is a difference in taste most of the time)...Here in Turku there are a couple of McDonalds that a I know of and one of them I have visited on more then one ocassion =) check it out!

Stockholm, Sweden

When I had jsut signed with the team we had a preseason camp in Sweden...We were there a week for two friendly games. On our day off we all jumped on the team bus and explored the downtown area. It was real nice, bigest city I've been in since I arrived in europe so for me it reminded me of holm a bit..the crowded areas, the big malls and ofcourse the cold weather! well here are a few pictures of STOCKHOLM.

It's been a while!

So If you didn't know I had problems with my internet connection here in my apartment. This was the main reason as to why I had'nt posted anything new. I'm writing to you this morning because the clubs tech guy came to work his magic so that the problem was solved.

I havnt updated anything on my blog lately because this Weekend was the most eventful weekend I've had here in Turku... Like I posted earlier, my friend Frank came to visit me from Oulu, Finland and so that meant I had to show him around town.
Friday : Traning, picked up Frank, went bowling with a few friends, went to Gilly's house(teamate) and then went to the club.
Saturday: Paintballing and then we went to a cottage and BBQ'd before the new comers to the team were welcomed to the club.
Sunday: chilled out, took it easy and made dinner for ourselves.
Like I said eventful!It was good for a change but I like just chilling at home on my MAC blogging. Here are some pictures of the weekend.

Doing it myself

Well this easter weekend most of the shops and restaurants were closed including the stadium restaurant where the whole team eats lunch and dinner if they choose to. So since I couldn't go eat there Claudio and I along with Frank (friend who came ot visit me) got together and cooked some chicken with rice and french fries. To my surprise it came out real good. I know all of you are thinking that my friends must of cooked everything but I asure you I played a significant part in the cooking process :) We also made some real good pasta and sauce but I didnt take any pictures of that....Here are some Pictures of the dinner along with my breakfast.

Xbox 360...

I got Xbox 360 hooked up now I have something else to entertain me while I'm here...FIFA 09, NBA 2K9 and HALO 3..I have some good games so as soon I can hook up my internet to my Xbox I'll be playing against people from home!

MAGAZINE article

Today an article in a magazine came out here in Turku...Here is the link to the whole magazine.....


An idea for a series of things came to mind (I kind of stole the idea)...I'm thinking of having a episode of Dtv where i show you my house, what I drive and anything else that comes to mind that has to do with "HOW I'M LIVING"...the segment will be called "How I'm Living - CRIBS" and as time goes on I'll show you my apartments developement, like new furniture or some sort of decoration/artwork that I recently put up...Also I thought I'd have episodes where I show you how some of my friends who also play overseas professionaly are living...that will be called "How Their Living"...It's an idea open to suggestions, so send me some feedback with ideas or suggestion in order to make things a bit more interesting.

A card that means the world to me :)

Before I left I recieved a beautiful gift from a very special girl in my life..she my cousin and god daughter, Julia Marina. She wrote me a card and drew me a picture...It was real nice and now I've put it up for everyone who comes in my house to see! here it is.....

"Bye David I am going to miss you and if you miss me to you can look at this picture....Good Luck!"
- Julia Marina
she also gave me a little token of an angel and on the flip side it says "Always with you"
love you Julia!

TFC Update

My favourite club in the world is without a doubt TFC. Thats where I've learned a lot and where I played my first two prfessionla games with 20,000 loyal fans screaming at me with nothing but support. Who wouldnt love Toronto after that? Anyways....I've been following TFC during preaseason and suring the few season games that have past and I feel like it's comming...They have the players and the structure to do well this year. I hope that they do.....

Toronto FC despite their efforts and previous unbeaten streak lost yesterday to Seattle Sounders FC. The last couple of games I watched looked like TFC is heading in the right direction, although I didn't see the game yesterday I trust they played hard for the fans who packed BMO field. In time they'll be better and eventually compete for a championship!

beloware is the link to TFCtv where you can watch all the highlights of the game and some exclusive interviews.
