Toronto FC vs Chevus USA

leave a comment »

We felt a little left out because we didn't know the chants...

Tonya and I wend to see a Toronto FC game a few weeks ago. They were playing Chevus USA. I kept thinking the announcer was saying “Jebus” (as in “I love you Jebus” from the Simpsons) but it’s actually Chevus that we were playing. We won 2-1. This was the game where a someone sent off a flare.

The best part of the game is how much the fans are into it. This video from the end of the game might give you an idea of the atmosphere:

It's even by a park...

The move is finally done. If anyone wants to live here, there’s $150 in it for you. The property management promises $300 to anyone that brings in new tenants. Tonya and I would split this with anyone who wants to move in.

May the 4th be with the Jays

We even got a chance to do the wave...though it took 4 or 5 tries before the fans got into it and it made it's way all the way around...

We went to see a Jays Game the other day. There’s something great about cheering for the underdog with low expectations. Currently they are 1st in the AL and 3rd overall.

Skydome...not Rogers Centre...blecchh

Bay street is rather mellow on the weekend...

Tonya and I were on a staycation in Toronto the last few weekends. This picture was taken on the way to the distillery district.
