Monday, December 11th I was proud to rise in the House to congratulate the TFC, on their win of the MLS Championship.
“Glory in Red – an ode to Toronto FC
The sun was setting on Saturday night, as our boys in red took the field shining so bright.
A superlative season did lie in their wake, but this was the big game, an opportunity at redemption at stake.
We were flying in the first half keeping Seattle pinned back, but sadly no goals even though we dominated attack.
The second half kicked off TFC in full flight, then in a moment of glory Altidore struck with great might.
The celebration was wild as the fans they did roar, Red Patch Boys, Tribal Rhythm Nation, U-Sector and so many more.
As the clock wound down Vasquez put it away, ensuring TFC fans would never forget this Championship day.
As the lads raised the cup our hearts filled delight, our heroes got it done on this unforgettable night.
So here is my message as I wrap up this short ditty, your hard work and commitment bring tremendous pride to our city.
As we end 2017 and put this year to bed, we will forever have memories of our TFC Champs, of their Glory in Red.”
