Fuck Vancouver but don't mind giving Felipe a brief applause.

Hopefully we rotate a bit better than the last time we played on 3 days rest

Just got mine. Love em. (dark) Red (and light red) and black. White sole. Just great.

FTFY. i generally like them, but would have been happier if they had stuck to the same color red instead of mixing and matching shades

the ancillary non-drink stuff (i.e. soccer teams, formula 1, extreme sports, parachuting from outer space) is what allows red bull to position itself as a "premium" brand in the energy drink space.  absent any of that, do you think anyone would pay twice as much for a can of red bull as they do for Monster?

 

so to answer the question, having a soccer team in N. America allows RB parent to position itself as a premium brand.  and no they are probably not going to get rid of it anytime soon.
