THE STARTING 11: Advantages to having so many Montreal Impact fans visit BMO Field

Toronto and Montreal. Rivals in so many things. Language, culture, business, terrible mayors, Prime Minister-themed airports and who Upstate New York wants to take to the prom. No list of inter-city rivalries of course would be complete without sporting interests. Whether it is real football, Canadian American football or ice football, these two great cities love to battle it out. TFC and Montreal Impact have a nice little head-to-tĂȘte going on and the clubs' fans are travelling in greater numbers. On Saturday, BMO Field hosted its largest ever group of MLS away supporters and when that many of our swarthy, brooding cousins from Quebec stop by, it has advantages...

11. Stadium's "No Smoking" rules completely out the window for one afternoon

10. Proposed "safe standing" sections accelerated by random seat removal in away section

9. Inevitably poor BMO Field weather helps both sets of supporters ignore flying spit

8. They bring their own cheese!

7. High number of flares helps planes land at Toronto Island Airport

6. The GO Train ends up sounding like a classy, double-decker Orient Express

5. Much higher chance of seeing Mitsou

4. The haunting pre-match song "You'll Never Prov-alone"

3. BMO Field demolition costs plummet with assistance from visiting "volunteers"

2. Quebec/Ontario relations are strengthened as thousands of people join together in their mutual disdain for Vancouver Whitecaps

  1. Toyota Rush price is expected to come with outstanding interior design with a spacious and comfortable cabin. It will be spacious enough for seven passengers with good legroom and headroom. Seats will be comfortable, well-padded and will provide good all round support. The steering and gear knob are expected to be wrapped in leather and the material quality of the plastics, chrome and metal will be good and well put together. The steering mounted controls will add to the convenience factor. Audio quality would be superb and smartphone connectivity will be seamless. The SUV will come with effective air-conditioner which will quickly chill its big cabin. There will be generous amount of boot space which may be expandable on folding down the second and third rows. Toyota Rush will come generously equipped with features such as automatic climate control with rear blower, power windows, multi-function steering wheel, 2-DIN audio system with 6-speakers and USB and bluetooth connectivity, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob are just to name the few.
