Marseille Again

Soccerphile World Cup Blog at related • 0 views
Got up at 6am in Nice in time for a 10km run along the 4km promenade. The pace felt like that of the starter in Lyon two days earlier.

My alarm first went off at 3.50am, the time a week ago that this journey started. Since then we have been to 8 different venues and spent a day on a train (plus one flight) travelling.

We caught the train, after checking it was running the night before, at lunchtime and made our way to Lyon as rain appeared on the Windows.

The Starting 11

THE STARTING 11: Toronto FC-inspired food stands at BMO Field for 2013

Man, IHOMHEP sucks.  One of the folksy multicultural promotions that TFC began back in 2007 was to aim for gastronomical inclusiveness at the BMO Field concession stands. In a city where football supporters can hail from any continent, the club tried to cater to all needs simultaneously.

THE STARTING 11: BMO Field's new Toronto FC player-inspired food stands

"Soolsma promised me it was 'delectable'..."One of the annual traditions for a select few TFC supporters is the pre-season food-tasting event at BMO Field. A "lucky" few fans go behind the scenes to try the new concessions on offer for the season, which usually include politically correct, offensive to none, "football" food such as " Jerked Toad-in-a-hole-in-a Belgian Waffle Pizzas".

THE STARTING 11: Toronto FC Homemade Ice Cream Flavours

If there is one thing no one can take away from MLSE (and believe us, we try) it's the corporation's eye for a good cross-promotion. The Bay Street Bankers love sticking their properties' logos over anything with a flat surface and TFC is no exception. It wouldn't be surprising then if locked somewhere, hundreds of feet below Air Canada Centre, a team of lab monkeys and marketing jocks weren't thinking of a deliciously frozen way of exploiting Toronto's new boys of summer.

THE STARTING 11: Rejected new foods at BMO Field

As TFC struggles to sign new players and Major League Soccer itself seems ready to implode due to a strike, it's nice to have some home comforts in the off-season. One of Toronto FC's enduring traditions has been the winter food tasting evening. Once a year a group of guinea pigs... er TFC supporters are invited downtown to taste the new foods which will be available that season at BMO.

He's right to applaud himself, as aptly-named Swansea City right-back Angel Rangel spent last night driving around Swansea with his wife and helping every homeless person they came across by handing out food that they had "going spare".

After having Tweeted his followers asking in which areas of the city he'd find homeless people, the Rangels set out and spent an hour or so distributing food after ending up at a homeless shelter.
