    About 2 months ago I announced on Twitter (@greypaul) that I would be offering commissioned ESSU! comics.

    Basically it's an opportunity for supporters to get a customized ESSU! comic(s). You tell me your story and I bring it to life. And hopefully it will be funny!

    A day-one supporter reached out to me to create something for him, honoring a memorable Championship night at BMO field. Links below!

    Champions 1.

    Champions 2.

    Champions 3.

    BWAH! Boy do I remember that night! After our boys raised the MLS Cup, and we all soaked in the moment like a thirsty sponge, we headed over to Joe's to celebrate and party hard. And David was in the middle of all of it, shirtless and his one tone TFC logo tattooed on his shoulder for all to see. He was the one who introduced me to Jack Daniels Honey Gold, one of the nicest hard liquors that I ever downed.

    And I had my own moment with Seattle supporters. When the whistle blew to end the match, I started jumping for joy and headed straight to 112 to celebrate with my fellow RPBs. On the way, I saw some dejected Seattle fans headed out the door. As soon as I was close enough to them, I put a brief pause on my celebrating to reach my hand out to them and told them their boys played a great match and had nothing to be ashamed about. I shook hands with them, then proceeded to 112.

    Good times all around!

    Big game pre-game. New (ish) ESSU! now available.

    I actually did this before the Canada v Panama game but in my hurry to get to the game itself, I neglected to post it here.

    Brings back that time. Something I'll remember all my life. Who would think that it was so fleeting and TFC would be back down in the standings in a few years?

    Fleeting in one sense. Lives on in another. But without Joes there for pre / post game I find it very hard to recreate the passion.

    Good to see you back! Is it just me, or are they looking a little older? Character development FTW - you should show how old his kid is now!

    Day after and still absorbing. But it will definitely be positive. Maybe with a touch of pathos.

    Story of my life. Both kids have no interest in soccer (or really in any sport).
