I've been to almost every home Toronto FC game this year. They are so much fun, and I'm a complete hard core fan.

Was at this past Sunday's game when David Beckham came to town to sit on the bench. Almost every Toronto FC fan could give a rats @$$ about Beckham, but the hype and static of the match was fun, as well as some "creative" chants we had for him. Was a real blast with 21,000 fans with coverage by ESPN, CBC and Channel 5 in the UK.

There is a soccer show that's playing in the UK called, "David Beckham's Soccer in America" that's about the MLS. On their 3rd show, they did a bit about Toronto FC and David's visit to Toronto.

Just before the David Beckham interview, they cut to some Toronto FC fans. See if you recognize the big tall guy right at 6:27. Hurray, my .5 seconds of fame!

The whole video is quite interesting and all the shows from the series are online as well.

You look like you're enjoying yourself Mr. Mayor.

I'm glad you see some excitement in the game.

(I liken it to watching paint dry.) ;)
I'm sure I'd rather chew on glass than do or watch many of the things you find exciting, but that's ok... to each his own. :)

Even if soccer isn't your thing, the atmosphere and build-up to the game is really fun. The supporters groups get together at a bar, drink lots and sing and chant. We rented several double-decker buses to take to the game.

Now that sounds more like the kind of thing we do for a CFL football game. Like you said, to each his own, that's why I mentioned you looked like you were havin' fun. Keep on busin"! :D
