8:11pm: U-Sector X-mass reel 2007
Okay, so I know I never really kept up this journal, but that's no reason to not share the awesomeness of the U-Sector X-mass reel. Enjoy!

5:30pm: Chicago trailer
Like most people who went on the road trip to Chicago, I am far too tired right now to write a proper post about it. So, intead, here's a "trailer" from the match:

2:08pm: TFC vs FCD and more
Toronto FC vs FC Dallas - June 17, 2007 Highlights

A few FC Dallas supporters made the trip, and were treated to some beer that at least one couldn't handle.

In other news, the bus trip to Chicago has sold out! Thank god, I was stressing on it after putting myself down for 5 grand for the bus. Now we're going to invade Chicago with 2 coaches and over 150 people (a bunch are driving / flying down).

I also scored a single ticket to the opening Canada vs. Chile game of the U-20 world cup on July 1st. Great seat too, Section 113, row 3 (U-Sector represent!).

Tonight the mighty TFC take their game on the road and are up for a revenge re-match against the North East Revolution who initiated the team into the league back in April with a 4-0 loss. The Hideout is the place to be tonight if you want to watch the match.

I also signed up for the U-Sector winter indoor soccer league, where "skill is actually frowned upon" and "ya have to have a pub. What do you think we would run around for an hour for the good of our health (have ya even seen me?), no, it's to earn yerself some time in the pub." Should be fun.

Toronto FC vs New York - June 6th / 2007

It was the clash of the corporate teams with BMO sponsored Toronto FC hosting the New York Red Bulls (owned by, you guessed it, Red Bull energy drink).

3:36pm: Toronto FC vs. Colorado Rapids matchday round up
Toronto FC vs. Colorado Rapids matchday round up

As far as the match goes it was pretty good, and we squeezed a 2-1 victory out of Colorado who frankly are a better team. The atmosphere in the stadium was amazing again and we were able to suck the ball into the Rapids' net and help keep it out of ours, even though a number of our starters were away on international duty. The only shameful thing that happened is that Kevin Goldthwaite was red-carded for "abusive or offensive language", which could just be dropping the f-bomb, but likely was something far nastier (like a racist insult, though I doubt we'll ever know for sure).

Anyway, here's the highlight reel.

Toronto FC Goals. Joga Bonito (play beautiful)

Not only do we jam to Portuguese dance songs, we have a chant in French! (and like to throw streamers and heckle opposing teams corner kicks). At the end of the video you can see my section 111 throwing the "TFC Massive"(AKA "The French chant") over the Gate 3 gap. You can see me about the middle of the screen with my black "Toronto" ball-cap on and khaki shorts (and my red Toronto FC jersey of course).

It's pretty good, but still not as awesome as the original from Lens in France.

Before the match I collected some money from U-sector guys for the road trip to Chicago that I'm helping organize at the pub pre-match, and got a 50/50 90 minute pool going for Toronto's first goal of the match (which nobody won, so will all go towards the trip). Unfortunately, the pub decided to be really strict on letting people in post-match, which was the last straw for a lot of us after they kicked everyone with a Toronto FC jersey out a couple weeks ago after one idiot (not a u-sector member) threw a pint glass into the street. Fuck the Wheatsheaf seems to be the prevailing sentiment (there's also a couple photos in that link of me stuck outside the pub looking bored). I ended up going to some friends' apartment after the match got an 8 pack of Creemore, hung out on the front lawn drinking, got a huge roti from Pam's, and then somehow ended up falling asleep in front of the Stanley Cup final (fortunately I woke up and was able to leave the house sometime around 1am).

Can't wait for the match against the New York Red Bulls (worst corporate named team in the MLS). on Wednesday.

8:30pm: Thunder on the Lakeshore
I don't really have time to write an article about the last TFC match, so here's a great article by someone else.

4:48pm: The Rowdy Corner
I went to the Toronto FC home opener last week and had an awesome time. Here's some photos and clips to give you some idea of what the atmosphere was like (but really you have to be at the match to really get it).

All we are saying... viewers on the CBC get a taste of TFC supporters singing a modified Jon Lennon tune.

A reminder to all away team players who might score, don't go to the TFC supporters section to celebrate unless you want a free beer-bath

And of course, what is a sporting event without the post-game party?

If anyone want to go to a match let me know as I do have an extra seat that needs to be filled. However, be advised, going to a match in Section 111 means you will be expected to stand, chant, sing, and support Toronto FC. Check out the upcoming schedule and let me know what game you want to go to. Note: for the LA Galaxy AKA "Beckham" game I will be using a lottery system to decide who gets to come with me to heckle that over-paid rockstar.
