So this is going on.

Today saw the largest attendance of a soccer match in Canadian history: just over 53 000. Next highest attendance was Montreal Impact versus. . . MExico City's team. Somewhere around 48 000 for that one.

Canada won the first match against China. Sloppy play by Canada infuriated by the Chinese walling but managed to break through that in the last 15 minutes when after some substitutions, more disciplined players (like Kyle) got on the field. We'll see if the team can reel in their tempers for the next match.
