I haven't seen his reasoning, but I did see a tweet about TFC being the Yankees vs AAA teams.

Same "Cool market" thing that bothered him about the NHL?

TFC outspent the other teams by a fair bit: http://www.denverpost.com/2017/04/25/ml ... olls-2017/

Since MLS isn't much of a developmental league, it's easier to buy a victory with old vets.

Oh, I get it now. Oh well, Toronto cared a whole lot more about an MLS Cup than most American cities would.

Those 5-10 seconds you really wonder about your anti-freeze colored urine, only to remember you've started taking multi-vitamins again...

I stubbed my baby toe so hard it swelled up to three times its regular size. I can't even put my winter boots on. Without a doubt the stupidest injury I've ever suffered.

Broke mine last summer, had to wear sandals for a couple weeks. Luckily it was the season for it.

Sucks. Done it too.

I'll have to think about the stupidest injury I've suffered. I've had so many. :lol:

drunkenly kicked a pile of sand at night that turned out to be a rock. The lost big toe nail did grow back in time.

I rarely get sick, and almost never take medicine. I've currently got pneumonia, a head cold and an ear infection. I'm about to start main-lining DayQuil and NyQuil. :fffffuck:

Could be worse, could have happened the first week of the new job, now you have time to recover. But ear infections really do suck.

Yeah, I have a physical tomorrow for the new job though. I asked if that includes a lung capacity test and it does. They're going to think I smoke 2 packs/day. :lol: I'm bringing all my prescriptions to show them I'm usually healthy. relatively.

Got a new work laptop and I've discovered how much I use the Home and End keys because now I have to hit the function key(which also fucks up my CTRL usage because of placement) to use those keys and it's annoying as fuck.

I think I need to work on my image. The other evening I was riding on the bus. It was pretty full. I was sitting there minding my own business, all "normal" like. There was a scruffy, middle age guy making his was through the bus panhandling. Yeah he's a bit nuts and I know he's not supposed to be panning on the bus, but it doesn't bother me the way it bugs other people. As he makes his way through the bus toward me I can see that people are irritated. Not me. I already have a loonie to give him in my hand. Here he comes.
"Spare some change?", "Spare some change?", "Spare some change?"
He looks at me, stops, points, and says, "Okay!" And he keeps going.
I'm not sure how to react, I turn around and say, "I have money!"
He turns around, looks at me and keeps going.
Nuts guy thinks I'm nuts. Everyone else looks at me like I'm nuts.

I've had the same thing happen. It's like homeless dudes think we're homeless as well. Or close enough that if we give them $1 we'll be next to them soon, essentially becoming panning competition.

I had a hot blonde Colombian girl sit beside me on the subway once and talk to me, asking about a Subdoku I was doing. Spoke hardly any English and gave me a peck on the cheek when we got off of the train. Had been with Anam for a while though so that was that. Might have been a trap? Don't know.

Also had a panhandler at an intersection look over to Anam and tell her that her boyfriend has beautiful sideburns :lol: They were in need of a trim at that point :lol:

F'n Awesome....

My wife swears by Elderberry syrup that you can get at Vitamin cottage. I thought it was voodoo but it does actually work when you start to feel sick.
