One more nod to this post from yesterday as our fearless leaders are up for some big awards here this season.

Time to check in on our weekend opponents from up north. They say to go wide with some creativity is key this weekend. I thought for them just putting bunkering was all they needed to do.
Very interesting to see that Greg Vanney got a vote of confidence from the management in Toronto yesterday. From the sound of things, they don't want to go through another coaching change this offseason after making the playoffs for the first time.
We joked around with what to send Houston in a deal for him yesterday but in all seriousness, it is a pretty big deal to see him already on the trading block a year after the Dynamo paid a big transfer fee to get him.
