"Reds Go Marching On" - 2010 TFC fixtures announced

------"I say, one does get tired of invading Columbus every year!"

Yesterday being Groundhog Day (no word if Mo Johnston saw his shadow) it comes as no surprise that TFC will wake up to Columbus Crew ("I Got Crew Babe") once again this season. Most supporters already knew that The Reds were opening in The Mid-Ohio Riviera, as MLS still tries to shove false rivalry down our throats, but Wednesday saw the league release the rest of the 2010 fixture list. Fixture List Day - it should be given an animal too. I think hedgehogs are available.

As already announced, then rescheduled for ESPN purposes, TFC opens at home to MLS new boys Philadelphia Union on April 15th. The rest of TFC:2010 unfolds like so...

A more balanced schedule for TFC as compared to years past with no more than two games on the road in a row currently scheduled. The promised World Cup break is included with TFC being handed four matches at home in a row during June and July. Toronto pays the price in October however with three tough away games out of four in the midst of the playoff shuffle. The Canadian Championship is yet to be shoe-horned into the schedule but overall it seems kinder to Toronto than we have experienced in the past. Now the hard part... winning these matches.
