Men's soccer team in T.O.

The boys and I rolled into YVR nice and early, some of us reading and catching up on studying, while others spoke of philosophy and the Canadian Legislature. Just joking, we ate Vera's Burger and I managed to get a wheelchair. A couple weird things happened on the way there. For one, our flight was delayed by a few hours, and on the plane one of our players, the magnificent Donald Kambere, fainted by the bathroom. What a hilarious guy.

Once we landed, we met our hosts and got settled and then headed off to a restaurant called Mr. Greeks. It was pretty good, but a few of us had to cover the other guys' tips. Not cool, boys.

Oh, also, I sang Seal's "Kissed by a Rose" on the plane. I'm thinking about hanging up the boots, and going into singing. Or just being a professional bum.

Tomorrow's the big game. I haven't really thought about it too much.
