FIFA - England 1, USA 1

The 2010 FIFA World Cup started yesterday.

I don't know much about soccer ... I know when they score and that's about it.

Toronto comes alive when this series is happening. Gord and I wanted to be in a pub this afternoon to watch England and the States play.

A lot of the pubs in our 'hood were jammed so we settled in at Hoops Bar & Grill on Queen Street W (it just opened two weeks ago).

We managed to find a spot at the end of the bar to stand.

Shortly after we arrived, they stopped letting people in because they were filled to capacity. The bartenders worked their butts off!

The majority of the patrons at Hoops were cheering for England and it was a fun vibe.

There was some soccer watching going on at our place. We are just to lazy to go out.

Too much baseball going on to take the time to watch soccer. :X

I used to play soccer as a kid. As far as I know it is just score and that's it.

I remember World Cup in Toronto - crazy fanatics.
