State of Mind: Really excited!
Location: Amid a sea of belongings - the maid will not be pleased
After five plus years I am finally going to my first TFC away match! I have been waiting for an opportunity to travel with my fellow fans to cheer our beloved Reds on for years and finally the footy gods smiled and away I go!! I've watched and heard with envy the tales of road trips; seen the pictures, videos etc and could only hope that a game would come up that went with my work schedule and my wallet.
I don't know what to expect having never been an away supporter - and being in Montreal? Oh mon dieu, do I remember any of my french? The animosity between our two cities when it comes to all things sporting (and well, all things) is well known, but I also know that supporter respect will come into play so I'm not (too) worried about things going sideways. Especially as this is a must win match for both teams in a battle to not be the sole occupant of the basement in the East and supporters from both sides will be revved up even more so than usual. I know what it's like to be with my fellow supporters in a sea of red; singing and chanting and passionately cheering on my team - but now to do that surrounded by a larger sea of blue? This should be fun.
I'll be tweeting as always and will likely post pics and maybe even some video. If you're not one of the lucky ones making the trip you had best be in front of the TV (at home or the pub) tomorrow at noon, decked out in your TFC gear and in full voice cheering our boys on!
Allez Les Rouges!!
