Toronto Rush - Home Opener

On a personal note - although ultimate is not an Olympic sport (yet) and this is technically a professional league (though without the professional salary), it's a sport I competed in and close to my heart. Toronto Rush who joined the American Ultimate Disc League this year will be playing their home opener this weekend- the first time the AUDL will host a game in Canada.
