Looks like I have 1 year left to support this team in person. Expansion of our NSS to include the Argos means I'd be done with going to a single home game.

TSN Official Release: http://bit.ly/1qMDvMc

Just under 300,000 average rating for Seattle vs TFC... EXCELLENT TV numbers for MLS...

1.5-million unique viewers tuned in at some point during the match...

Started strong with 311,000 first half hour, ending with 358,000 last half hour - big dip at half-time but came back up the following half hour...

Good start...

Amazing ratings. Perfect game to showcase TFC too. Next week vs DC should be even higher, given how much the hype is building around this team.

Dear Sid,
After an incredible off-season, and a thrilling 2-1 victory to open the season in Seattle, the Toronto FC home opener is just days away and we're looking forward to the beginning of an exciting season at BMO Field.
Over the past few months, there has been much discussion about plans to renovate BMO Field to ensure that our team and our fans have one of the best stadium experiences in Major League Soccer. When we met at the end of last season, I told you that it was important to us that you had the opportunity to participate in this discussion and I would like to invite you to a BMO Field Q&A session with Bob Hunter and myself on Saturday prior to our home opener.
This session will give us the opportunity to walk you through the plans for a new and improved BMO Field and for you to ask questions.

When: Saturday, March 22 - 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 190 Princes' Blvd (map (http://click.mlsefanmail.com/?qs=eaaf89fc988f99ca3d74fe591c3d65b1845ff45c91bc09 d9cdb608558cfa47ee90ebe689316bc4d4))
RSVP to event (http://click.mlsefanmail.com/?qs=eaaf89fc988f99ca6f69d629456ce2ab5dd2b83da42301 e0d31d0b2543842573d4d3be04732cc532). Please RSVP by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 18th.
As you saw from us this off-season, our goal is to field one of the top teams in Major League Soccer, and as part of that vision, we want them playing in front of you in one of the league's best stadiums. On top of that, this facility will be designed in a way to attract top sporting events helping ensure Toronto's place as one of the top sports and entertainment markets in the world.
We look forward to sharing our plans with you on Saturday before cheering TFC on to victory later that afternoon.
Yours truly,

Any RPB going to this?

RPB will be represented but I would advise anyone going that there will terrible traffic over the entire grounds so if one intends to get to Joe's for the march AND enjoy a pint or two beforehand that time will be very tight before the march leaves at 3:15.
