Major League Soccer’s forefathers had Saturday in mind when they conjured up North America’s top tier in 1993 — a weekend when a Bill Murray quote suddenly makes a lot of sense.

“Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!” Murray said in 1984’s Ghostbusters.

In a weird, borderline sacrilegious, turn of events heading into Matchday 33, the Montreal Impact will be Toronto FC’s biggest supporter on Saturday.

With the Reds in Chicago, the Impact needs its biggest rival to deny the Fire maximum points as both the Fire and Impact compete with Philadelphia and New England for the final two post-season berths in the East.

With the Impact (46 points, 4th) set to host Philly (46 points, 6th) Saturday afternoon, anything less than three points at Saputo Stadium will see the Quebecers turn to TFC for help Saturday night in the Windy City, a dream scenario for parity lovers everywhere.
