While Brian Burke has enacted a holiday moratorium on trades, TFC GM Mo Johnston has come correct with a Christmas Cracker of a deal the sees Toronto get Dwayne DeRosario from Houston for allocation money and Julius James. It’s pretty safe to say that TFC were on the nice list; in DeRo, the reds get a hometown guy who’s never missed the playoffs and got several years of MVP caliber play ahead of him, in return for a pittance of their allocation money (MoJo’s been hoarding it like Scrooge) and a “prospect” in his mid-twenties (in today’s reality, soccer prospects tend to be closer to 16). The fact that this trade was pulled off without using up the Designated Player spot leaves TFC fans licking their lips at the possibilities for the upcoming transfer window in January.
Despite the questionable hair styles and the "disabled chicken" goal celebrations, I might just have to get the DeRo jersey.

It's a great day for TFC.

And I fucking love the new banner. That's bad-ass.

We are brothers in Toronto sports suffering arms.
