A Supporter’s Lament: On Toronto FC’s MLS Cup Win

A bit of a ramble from me about TFC and what is simultaneously one of the happiest and saddest days in my life – because it’s all about me (but mostly it’s all about you). Toronto FC are MLS Cup champions – the most glorious thing ever. The first Canadian team to win the Cup, the first MLS team to win the domestic treble, records galore – just so wonderful.  There’s no denying the wonder of this...

The South Couch Report – Columbus v Toronto, 1st Leg
