Holland, Orange Fever, Football + Amsterdam Canal Pride, all in Toronto!

Holland, Orange Fever, Football + Amsterdam Canal Pride, all in Toronto!
Many of you know that I'm rather fond of Holland (in addition to Canada, Hong Kong, Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia).

In any case, there was a FIFA World Cup match (Netherlands vs. Mexico) during Toronto/ World gay Pride 2014. It just so happened that the Dutch won during the pride parade and I happened to be just outside of a pub where a group of Dutch fans were watching. After the Dutch's victory, the fans came out to watch the pride parade.

Added to all these coincidences, it turned out that Amsterdam Canal Pride has sponsored a float in the Toronto Pride, which resulted in all this orangeness in downtown Toronto!

Almost hard to believe seeing this in Canada eh? I'm not much of a sport fan, but it's fun to watch the stupid and crazy things that the fans do, like the Brazilians looking so sad yesterday as if their husband/ wife/ child just died suddenly.

Well, actually I'm not surprised. After WWII many Dutch migrated to Canada. There is a large contingent of "us" overthere....

Ja, plus people from Surinam, and South Africa also support the Dutch sometimes, plus a certain Canadian-Chinese from Hong Kong also like many things :Dutch!
