After thousands of fans packed streets in the city’s downtown core to watch the Toronto FC’s victory parade Monday, a jubilant Altidore took to the stage to address the crowd at Nathan Phillips Square. His impromptu speech at the end of the rally targeted the Montreal Impact, TFC’s main rival, and he later professed his love for Canada’s biggest metropolis.
“Before we go guys, let’s spare a moment for our rivals,” Altidore said. “They’re second best again. And we have the treble. 401 Derby champs. Toronto FC, baby. Best team ever!”
The 28-year-old soaked in the crowd’s cheers before continuing, turning his focus to the relationship between TFC and its fans.
“I just want to let you guys know that I’ve been partying since Saturday, and baby I’m TFC till I die!”
