Road Blog: Matchday Morning

Good morning from Montreal!

To start the day, the guys on the team had breakfast and enjoyed the Wimbledon final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer in the restaurant attached to the hotel. Judging by Cole Grossman and Eric Gehrig's celebration following Federer's slice to win a game in the first set, it seems the Swissman is the overwhelming favorite among Crew players... Minus Murray's fellow Brit Chris Birchall, of course.

Given the players' and coaches' interest in Wimbledon, the team walk was delayed by a couple minutes. On the way out of the hotel, Chris Birchall was kind enough to stop and sign a few autographs for some young fans.


The Crew's route on the morning walk included a stroll down Montreal's Rue Saint-Catherine, which is lined with desiginer boutiques. The team gave Emilio Renteria some grief as the striker fought the temptation to visit the Louis Vuitton store.

The morning walk ended with a stretching session in front of one of Montreal's many downtown churches before the guys split up for lunch.

Stay tuned later for more coverage from Stade Saputo before tonight's match.
