The most amusing thing in Toronto is that we have enclaves of every single nationality and ergo, team, so on any given day part of the town is in mourning, and another part is in ecstasy. At 10 o'clock in the morning, you have Koreans racing around town, or Turks or Senegalese with flags draped from their cars. On the bus in the morning, people ask each other, what the hell flag is that? Turkey? Senegal?

Another amusing thing is that the day after Portugal lost (dire day in my neighbourhood) all the Portugueuse flags were replaced by Brazil flags. One of the advantages of having had a colonial empire. yours, Peter T.
