A friend of mine works in Toronto and hates the Leafs. He requested that if the Leafs were in the playoffs he could stay with me in the US to avoid the insanity. Jebus

But if this is as important as the World Cup to us Euros than this is as it is supposed to be, that's all I wanted to say.

If Germany won the WC, everyone would be on the street everywhere.

Have fun and don't go to sleep.

Something impressive is attached to Yonge street.

I watched the game at the local hockey arena. They had it on the jumbotron. There were two or three thousand people there and my ears are still ringing from the noise.
