TFC vs. Montreal Impact, Round 5: The WTR Game Thread

At least one of them is still around. - Richard Wolowicz

It's a meaningless game for most parts, with the result pretty much irrelevant -- but hey, at least we got around to quoting Gangnam Style. That's something, right?

2012 MLS Season, Game 33

BMO Field, Toronto

Jose Carlos Rivero (7 MLS games; 26.6 FC/g; 3.9 Y/g, 4 PKs)

오빤 강남스타일 강남스타일
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style!
낮에는 따사로운 인간적인 여자 커피 한잔의 여유를 아는 품격 있는 여자
A girl who's cool during the day, a classy girl who knows how to enjoy life,
밤이 오면 심장이 뜨거워지는 여자 그런 반전 있는 여자
A girl whose heart races when night comes, a girl with that kind of twist.
나는 사나이 낮에는 너만큼 따사로운 그런 사나이 커피 식기도 전에 원샷 때리는 사나이
I’m a guy, guy who's hot blooded, a guy who slams his coffee like a boss,
밤이 오면 심장이 터져버리는 사나이 그런 사나이
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes, that kind of guy!
아름다워 사랑스러워 그래 너 hey 그래 바로 너 hey
Beautiful, loveable...yes you, hey, yes you, hey...
지금부터 갈 데까지 가볼까
Now let’s go until the end...

- "Gangnam Style", Psy
(Translation modified from Ganada Korean School's version)

We've all heard this song and dance before, haven't we? But is TFC's management actually trying to be what it isn't (and ultimately what is being lampooned in the international smash hit above)? Sure, they're trying to keep people in the stands, but will some sort of a result here today mean anything?

There won't be Darren O'Dea to anchor the back due to a thigh injury sustained during Ireland duty, while Mr "Will-He-Or-Won't-He" Eric Hassli is once again a maybe for this match...but does it really matter any more? Montreal will have a full lineup; only Felipe, Bernardo Corradi and Nelson Rivas are out -- but again, with absolutely nothing on the line (even next year's Voyageurs' Cup seeding is no longer in doubt), don't expect fireworks.

But then again, this IS Toronto-Montreal we're talking about. No? It doesn't make a difference? Well, at least we can still laugh at Jesse Marsch (wherever he is, oh right...he's suspended), Joey Saputo and Marco di Vaio....right?

This thread will largely be unmanned, so have fun...but don't go crazy. House rules still apply!
