Sebastian Giovinco Introductory Press Conference
11:00 AM EST
Jermain Defoe's arrival last year may have been a "bloody big deal", but even he didn't shut down Pearson Airport the way Sebastian Giovinco was able to do yesterday. Apparently a grown man cried, and it wasn't Larry Tanenbaum when he saw how much Italian's would be willing to pay for tickets and merchandise now that the team had finally marketed to them.
He also likely broke a longstanding Toronto FC record: most selfies taken by a player. While definitive data remains unclear, it is fair to speculate that the record was previously held by Paul Mariner. Now everyone will hope he can echo this success on the field. First, however, he will have to face the Toronto media, who likely haven't forgotten last season when this exact situation played out with Jermain Defoe.
