Morning Brew: July 10, 2006
An expected 200,000 Torontonians took to the streets in Corso Italia to celebrate Italy's World Cup victory over France, joining over 35,000 people who watched the final match at the
Rogers Centre SkyDome. And while most of the festivities remained civil, Toronto Police were definitely stretched thin this weekend as the city was littered in parties. Fans of Les Bleus across Toronto are still left in wonder after the French loss and Zidane's headbutt.
The Jays head into the all-star break on a winning note, with Halladay proving that not only does he deserve the all-star nomination, but also deserves the exorbitant amount of money we're paying him.
Ricky Williams doesn't seem to be making much of a difference for Toronto, as the Argos dropped their third straight game to the Bombers on Saturday night.
Speaking of bombers, in non-sports-related news (there is some), the federal government announced that Toronto will be the home of a global organization that will combat terrorist financing.
Oh, and if you heard YorkU students singing "The Roof, The Roof, The Roof is On Fire" on Saturday, this time they were serious.
