Kit Nerd Corner : The 2016 Kittie Awards!

Disclaimer : I care and because I want to. I love awards. In fact, my favourite type of awards are about niche topics from unofficial sources written by someone who has a horse so high, it’s a struggle to get on it at all, so I’m doing this for me, and you can choose to ignore it. That being said… 2016 Best Jersey Criteria : it’s a nice looking shirt. You could wear it to non-footy related events and it is not an eyesore....

Kit Nerd Corner : The 2015 Kittie Awards!

Disclaimer : I care and because I want to. Why not another series of awards?  Who doesn’t like nonsensical awards based on one persons’ opinions?  Why not another rhetorical question to lead off a segment? With the emotional roller coaster that was the MLS season of 2015 well in the ground, it’s time to look at the shrouds of the corpses of the year gone by. Reflection is a wonderful tool when it comes the visceral...

Of course, time passes, teams and leagues mature, and the one-time Wiz are now...

South Traffic Report : Toronto v Kansas City

Yeah it’s late. You see, somebody was trying to actually get to the game on time.  They left early, gave themselves, what they thought was, plenty of time to get down to the stadium.  Who knew that one set of road closures would have screwed up everything. At 3:00 I had exited the Gardiner and was on Park Lawn. By 4:30 I was on the Queensway at Windemere, a whopping 2.3km in 90 minutes.  With another 4.3 km to go, at this rate,...

Toronto FC Kit And Sponsor Is (Finally) Official

It’s officially here – the new, less maple leaf strewn, still BMO sponsored Toronto FC kit is available for viewing (and of course purchasing).  As is usual with things like this in MLS and TFC, the official release of the Toronto’s 2015 kit was little surprise to most, thanks to previous leaks and teases in commercials. The kit itself is – to my eyes anyway – a pretty solid one as far as kits in general...
