THE STARTING 11: Most Returned Toronto FC Inspired Christmas Gifts

Rolling pin

It’s not me, it’s my pins!

Sorry fans but that most holy of holy days, ­Boxing Day, ­has come and gone. A big part of celebrating the day when Jesus beat “Smokin'” Joe Frazier for the Heavyweight Title, (My history may be shaky. I drank a lot of egg nog. Sue me.), is collecting your gift receipts and returning those unwanted presents. While TFC supporters may be suckers for just about any kitschy item with the Reds’ badge on it, even we have limits. Some gifts are just too awful even for TFC standards… and that’s a low bar…
