I went to the game against the Galaxy at the Big O, huge crowd and was awesome. Problem is the stupid war between Videotron and Bell, I don't have the package and can't watch the Impact unless they're on RDS.

Oh, I see! That sucks for you man! Games on TV aren't that great though, especially not on TVA Sports. However the atmosphere at Saputo Stadium is unreal! I was their for our win against NYRB and it was honestly my best in-stadium experience ever as far as ambiance go... and I went to Habs vs Bruins playoff games, to Yankees games, to Pens playoff games against Ottawa, etc.

Soccer culture is slowly winning me!

The passion is definitely different, have your folks talk to you about the Le Manic if they remember, fans would have probably burned the Big O down. Soccer is big in Montreal, don't forget they basically replaced all baseball fields by Soccer fields years ago, also a cheap sport to play
