Domestic soccer leagues around Europe are back on their regular schedules after a break in their play for a round of international qualifiers - see NHL, it can work! - with a full weekend of play. As always, check here to see what is on the tube in Canadaland.
Toronto FC host lowly DC United at 4pm today at BMO Field for what is a 100% must win. Anything but a win will bring out some serious venom from the faithful at BMO. Got a good laugh hearing TFC coach Preki calling out fans to bring the noise for 90 minutes today to support the team.

New York Yankee left fielder Brett Gardner is the only one in the Yankees starting lineup making under $5.5 million, at around $450,000. That, friends, is one hell of a bargain.
