Toronto Mike

Trinidad and Tobago


When Canada and Ireland failed to qualify for the World Cup this year, I was left without a rooting interest.  I contemplated rooting for The Netherlands because I'm always hearing from other Boons in that part of the world and my surname apparently originated there.  I'm not much of a soccer fan and only pay attention once every four years, but I need a rooting interest.

After checking out the action over the past week, I've decided my team is Trinidad and Tobago.  They're an underdog, I watched them tie Sweden and loved their goaltender and the joy their fans expressed and I heard a very cool interview this morning with a Torontonian from Trinidad and Tobago that pushed me over the edge.

As I write this, they're tied 0-0 with England after the first half.  Trini to the bone!
