TORONTO - Toronto FC’s surprising 2-1 win over Eastern Conference giants Sporting Kansas City has forced pundits and beat guys alike to do something they haven’t in more than a year: Write something positive.
“No, you’re right,” TFC captain Darren O’Dea responded with a laugh. “There hasn’t been probably much (positives) since I’ve been here, but that certainly was. It’s nice to do it in front of fantastic home support, as well.”
