PUT THE BOOT IN The first annual NXNE charity soccer match between the musicians and the music industry and the media, plus a few ringers, to benefit Right to Play. Sunday (June 10), 3 pm. $5. BMO Field, Exhibition Place.
YOU'RE HELPING FC TEAMMATE DANNY DICHIO COACH THE MUSICIANS AT PUT THE BOOT IN. WHAT'S YOUR GAME PLAN? We'll just have to see if they have any soccer experience and then get them to work together and keep the ball moving. And make sure everyone has a good time. That's all we can really expect.
SOME NXNE PLAYERS MAY BE RECOVERING FROM LATE-NIGHT PARTYING. ANY HANGOVER REMEDIES ? Just run it off. And drink a lot of water.
WHAT ARE THE FANS HERE LIKE COMPARED TO THE NCAA? We had some crazy fans in Maryland, but the Toronto FC fans are more diehard. You hear them screaming and yelling from the warm-up to the final whistle. My hat's off to them. They really are the 12th player.
WHAT DID YOU KNOW ABOUT T.O. BEFORE YOU WERE DRAFTED AS TORONTO'S TOP PICK? Not too much. I knew it was a great multicultural city that was hungry for professional soccer.
WHAT RESTAURANTS AND CLUBS DO YOU LIKE TO GO TO? I eat at Pizza Rustica a lot, and if I go to the clubs with my friends, we might check out Embassy Nightclub.
