The Montreal Impact are hosting their Canadian brethren Toronto FC tonight for the first leg of the Eastern Conference Championship, but the scheduled 8:00 p.m. EST kickoff has been delayed after the grounds crew at Montreal’s stadium had to repaint the 18-yard box lines. Players had already completed their warmups when stadium officials noticed the fuck up, and they returned to their locker rooms to wait out the fresh coat of paint.

It’s not as if the turf was any good to begin with, mind you, and Toronto FC players said they’d rather play outside despite cold temperatures because the turf sucks so much.

Lovely. If you like MLS soccer and watching paint drying, two equally enjoyable practices, this is the game for you.
