It was quite the day for the city of Toronto yesterday. First, the Blue Jays clinched a spot in the ALCS after a wild game vs the Texas Rangers and then a Sebastian Giovinco goal for Toronto FC sent the club to their first ever playoff apperance. As the rapper Drake would say, "what a time to be alive!" Giovinco's goal for Toronto reminded us, and probably anyone who watched it, of a little Argentine that plays his futbol over the pond at Barcelona. Yes we're obviously talking about Lionel Messi, and yes Giovinco's goal mimics the likes of La Pulga.
Giovinco starts off the epic run by shedding off a defender just before cutting past another en route to the box. He then runs into two more defenders who he dishes out a nasty fake and cut back to before blasting a left footed shot past the keeper. The run, speed and creativity was Messi like and it was in a major moment sending Toronto FC to the playoffs. Like Drizzy said, "What a time to be alive."
