Below the jump, amateur video of Toronto mayor David Miller--looking suspiciously, um, happy--discussing the possibility of installing grass at BMO Field.
The comments start at the 9:15 mark.
The Coles Notes:
Interviewer: …if you built the stadium, can you get us grass?
Miller: We’re working on it.
Miller: But, you gotta understand it’s Canada right? Look what happened in Montreal—a national team disgrace, so you gotta be careful, but yeah. Grass.
Interviewer: So, what would the time line be? Four years, eight years? Two years. Just what were you thinking if of realistically?
Miller: Next. Year. (pause as he talks to a suddenly worried aid). Next year…but no guarantees, but we’re trying.
Youtube is a wonderful thing, you know.
