Second Annual Unofficial POV-FS Xmas Drinks – Details

    It’s winter in Toronto; the time has come to wrap another year

    The temperature has dropped – only to oddly rise again – though the outdoor rinks are ready to be marked by newly sharpened skates. The MLS Cup has been hoisted – congrats to LA and the Galaxy, the trees have been decorated – well, some of them anyways, and the NHL is in full effect – oh wait.

    It may be some time until Christmas and the holiday season are truly here, but that’s no reason not to get a head start on the celebrations.

    Wednesday afternoon – December the 5th for those more detail oriented, myself in conjunction with friends over at Waking the Red, would like to invite everyone to a get together to watch the final matchday of Champions League action.

    The matches kick off at 2:45 pm with tape-delayed airings carrying the action well into the evening.

    I’ve no idea which matches will be on – I’m most interested in the Shakhtar-Juventus and Celtic-Spartak matches – they’ve got plenty of TV’s anyhow; nor who will be there. It’s all very informal, stop in any time and say hello.

    As with last year, it will be held at the Duke of Gloucester located at 649 Yonge Street, a well-loved soccer spot in the middle of the city

    Not doing anything? Come out and watch the match. Busy in the afternoon? Pop in afterwards catch the replays.

    Thanks again to everyone who came last year.

    Hope to see you there.

  1. Oh you Toronto FC supporters meeting in Toronto. What about the rest of us suffering sods. Take the drinks on the road!

  2. Apologies for the delayed response - it's a busy time of year - and for the Toronto-centric nature of the event.

    Taking the drinks on the road is an excellent idea, one I hope one day to bring to life.

    How the game manifests itself in Canada outside of the major cities is an extremely interesting study that need be undertaken.

    In the meantime, please cultivate the culture of soccer watching and discussion wherever you may be.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
