Happy Easter Monday to our Christian observers/chocolate bunny observers. To the rest of you - happy Monday? Sure. Easter of course is where millions celebrate JC's (not Julio Cesar) big comeback victory over AS Roma in the egg fields near the stadium where Beitar Jerusalem now plays. We think.

"THE ARGOS TO BMO"   A true holiday classic. In that no matter what year it is - this story is always told. Like a reverse mistle-toe hanging over TFC supporters' heads since 2007, it is the story we all want to throw in the fireplace. But alas, like the wise men finding their way by the shining glow of Pinball Clemons' teeth, this one just keeps showing up.

"Come back tomorrow as Toronto FC host Columbus..." Editor's Note: The suddenly resurgent "Argonauts to BMO Field" story divides Toronto FC fans into two groups. The cynics who think that it is inevitable (Hi everybody!) and those who think it simply won't happen, or if it does - no big deal.

"Can you feel the passion? Umm...guys? Can you feel it?"
It was always going to be this way. As far back as the first home fixture in 2007, Toronto FC was based on a house of cards that was "the great atmosphere". It didn't help when the assembled North American football media got in line to stroke the club and its supporters' egos for managing to introduce a "European match atmosphere" to MLS.

Ah, the long weekend.

Today is the day that Upper Canada honours John Graves Simcoe who drove the snakes out of Pickering sometime in the mid-1970's.

Prior to the 2012 campaign, the Philadelphia Union had only lost 4 matches at home. It is early June, and the team ranks last in virtually every offensive category with a disappointing home record of 1-3-1. Eastern Conference teams are 31-15-12 at home this year (8 losses occurred at PPL Park or Toronto FC's BMO Field) and Western Conference teams are 31-20-12 at home (9 losses at the Home Depot Center).

"This ball is still believes in me..."
We barely had time to "get used to" you Kevin.

Through the powerfully heartfelt mediums of corporate press release and hobbled together conference call, Toronto FC kept the gears greased on their never-ending management carousel. Kevin Payne, the ever-so humble, Forlan-addicted veteran MLS executive has "parted ways" with Toronto FC and is no longer the President and GM of the wildly successful club.

Go ahead, call us lazy. Tell us we're phoning it in. After 7 years of covering TFC, you are what you eat.

To be fair, today's "Greatest Hits" Starting 11 is topical. When it first appeared on the site, "Argos to BMO" was still in the rumour (but who are we kidding - this deal was done a year ago) stage.

So they removed the President of Toronto FC and during the brief press conference it was revealed that MLSE is "kinda" still looking at shoehorning the Argos into the ground.
I don't get it. It doesn't make any sense.
I'm sure the cost of the retrofit doesn't remotely equal the money they'd make from a rental.

To celebrate our humble milestone of passing 200,000 hits to this little playground of football malarkey, we thought we'd have a little sing-a-long. While we often share some chants with you on here, today's is a bit special.
 
While we don't like to toot our own horn (TOOT!), today we take a look at the new BMO Field South Stand song sensation - Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody".

The blurst of times.
With apologies to the majority of the BMO Field population (circa 2007-2013), Toronto FC's image was built in large part on the visage of the South Stand. Now in no way are we claiming that the supporters in the south are more valuable or important than any others in the ground but it was the sizzle of the "European atmosphere" that TFC immediately harnessed to carve their place in Toronto's crowded sports entertainment market.
