saturday september 6

today i was waiting outside bmo field to meet up with some friends for the toronto fc game and found myself standing beside a guy who hated hearing national anthems before sporting events. after complaining about them for a little while, he finished by telling me, “fucking stupid tradition, man,” put out his cigarette, and walked into the stadium, seemingly uninterested in whether i had any thoughts on the matter.

I wish Portland went the Europe/Toronto route and just called themselves Portland FC. Then again, nearly every MLS team has an official name.
