This weekend there’s been a Portugal festival going on in Toronto. Living in little portugal, i’ve seen a lot of “C. Ronaldo” and “Figo” jerseys around.
Little kids in headbands.
People blowing whistles.
Cars with not one, but two portugese flags.
The store up the street is cranking portguese wedding music.
(or at least what i assume is portugese wedding music).
I think they’re even closing parts of dundas street.
And this is all before the game begins.
So, we’ll see in an hour how the game goes.
I may do an experiment, i may just keep my tv off and try to follow the game by the reactions of the people around me.
ie- lots of whistles, portguese goal. really quiet- they’re losing.
