Not sure if growing up in Rosario is similar to wet and windy Manchester, but Hernán Bernardello did not put a foot wrong in what was an imposing debut in an Impact shirt for the 27-year old Argentine. His performance (with almighty weather for the Stade Saputo backdrop Wednesday evening) was one that anyone would associate with the rainforest. It was a virtuoso man of the match performance if ever there was one - as 2008-2009s Cinderella team kicked off its 2013-14 tilt in the Champions League. A passing and checking clinic from Bernardello that the likes of Lou Lamoriello could only dream of. However, it was the shade over 15,000 fans –sitting through the rain-lashed uncovered Impact terraces - I was most impressed with. A raucous atmosphere it was, their sole and most united response as the rain made its appearance in sheets for an extended period. On a far smaller scale, I defy anyone not to compare that extraordinary Stade Saputo atmosphere to a rain-sodden Barclays Premier League evening at Old Trafford. Ive been blessed to witness first-hand the might and majesty of Liverpool supporters celebrating victorious at a European Cup Final. Take a bow, UM02. Ultras Montréal, formed in 2002 are the Impacts original supporter group. Not always on the same page with the club, they are still the most loyal, standing by through thick and thin. On Wednesday, with each and every member seemingly soaked through to the skin, they reached a new higher ground. "The rain has never stopped us before and it certainly would not stop us for such an important game," UM02s apokesperson told TSN.ca the morning after. "The rain always brings a special feeling in the kop, it seems to energize people when they see that the ultras will not give up and keep going 100 per cent." The Ultras have wonderfully spawned superb new supporter groups at Saputo. Whats that they say about imitation and flattery? With the absence of significant travelling supporters making the journey to Montreal - save for Toronto FC - the combined banter that the Impact supporter groups provided added terrific value to the overall Stade Saputo experience on a given match day. The proof of this was in the startled reaction of the casual Saputo visitors Wednesday night. That, alongside the supporter groups in the West and South stand terraces or tucked away in a corporate loge (The Prawn Sandwich Brigade, as legendary Manchester United captain Roy Keane so eloquently described them once).As events on the terraces unfolded Wednesday, I couldnt help but think back and affectionately reminisce about the Impacts previous Champions League campaign. Specifically, the final group stage home game against CD Olimpia played in late October 2008. The 1-1 draw ensured the Impact safely emerged from the group with a game to spare but it was the weather that I wont forget. Nor the fantastic atmosphere generated on what should have been an invigorating fall evening. Now growing up in England, Ive witnessed some shocking blustery-type weather. But this was all together on a completely different level. Goal kicks into the wind seemed to cough up negative yardage and fool you for any attempted back passes. This, though, was the calm after the storm that was the inaugural game played at Saputo back on Victoria Day of 2008. The Whitecaps were the opponent that particular Monday afternoon, and with the Impact provoking for the move into MLS, commissioner Garber was in attendance. For the Ultras, this is all part of the legacy they have carved out over their time. "Weve had memorable rain episodes in the past," said their spokesperson. "Most notably in the playoffs at Centre Claude-Robillard in 2006 I think, where it was just us and a few brave souls that decided to stay and join us, which made the kop instantly grow to over 125 people, which was huge and never seen at the time. "Then the opening game at Saputo in 2008, which was the worst and something we hope to never have to go through ever again. We still have nightmares about that one. For sure, the rain is much more fun in July or August than in April or October but whatever the weather, we keep on giving our all." Anyone who has witnessed it can certainly testify - UM02 most certainly do - it did in buckets Wednesday. Someone who was there for that maiden Impact voyage in the Champions League - and now finds himself on the bench as Schällibaums right hand man - is Mauro Biello. Wednesdays atmosphere was not lost on the only player in the Impacts 20-year history to have his shirt retired. "It was a great atmosphere last night," he said. "I remember back in 2008 during the qualifying rounds of Champions League, even though the crowds were smaller, they were loud and supportive. But last night was extra special because despite the pouring rain, no one left their seats and they were in the game." Biello aptly concluding, "Thats a sign of some passionate supporters. They are starting to get into the CONCACAF Champions League a little more and their support definitely helped us win the game." Earlier this season, MLS Commissioner Don Garber was on the record as stating MLS will be amongst the top 10 leagues in world football within the decade. To make this a reality, not only do we need to see vast improvements on the pitch, a greater consistency with our officials and an erosion of the single entity structure, but our football culture needs an injection along the same vein as the financial doping (thanks, Arsene) that permeates certain parts of European club football. An international brand and pedigree attached to the CONCACAF Champions League (and if we factor in that back in 1955 UEFA created the European Cup for one sole purpose) and staging an annual continental club competition that would be played in midweek under floodlights. Following Wednesdays spectacle at Saputo, we might finally be onto something. Hopefully, as the Impact look to break out of their current single MLS victory in seven-deepening malaise, long-time Impact equipment manager Aldo Ricci arranged for his staff to bottle Wednesday evenings atmosphere and pack it on board the their charter.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.

Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career.SAN ANTONIO -- LeBron James and Dwyane Wade lingered at the edge of the court for a few extra moments after Game 4 of the NBA Finals, waiting to tend to one last piece of business. They wanted to shake Chris Boshs hand. By now, its not a surprise when the biggest man in Miamis trio of stars gets overshadowed, which surely seemed to be the case once again in the game that essentially saved any hope the Heat have at winning their second straight NBA title. James scored 33 points in his best game of the finals and Wade played his best game in about three months with 32 points, but Boshs 20-point, 13-rebound effort in Miamis 109-93 win over San Antonio was not lost on the Heat. "He got into the battle. He got into the fight," Wade said. "He played big for us. Thirteen rebounds, thats what we need from him and obviously 20 points. He played the way that we love to see Chris Bosh play." Put another way, if Bosh keeps playing like this, there could be another parade down Biscayne Boulevard in a few days. Maligned throughout much of the playoffs for relying almost too much on the long jumper and 3-point shot -- hes exceptional from the outside for a big man, but went 0 for 4 from 3-point range in Miamis loss in Game 1 of the finals -- Bosh quietly changed his approach. In the next three games of the finals, hes taken one 3-pointer, and that was a meaningless misfire with the Heat down by 26 points midway through the fourth quarter of San Antonios romp in Game 3. Hes had three straight double-doubles, just the second time thats happened all season. Hes stayed in more comfortable offensive locales inside the arc, and has totalled 44 points and 33 rebounds in the most recent three games of the series -- three more points and three more rebounds than the Spurs Tim Duncan has collected in that span. Yes, the NBA found him guilty of flopping in Game 4, fining him $5,000 for his arms-flailing fall after a nudge by Duncan. Overall, though, Bosh was anything but a flop in a game that kept Miami from going into what would have been a dreaded 3-1 hole. "I dont know really what the difference has been with Chris," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on Friday, an off day for both teams before the series resumes with Game 5 in San Antonio on Sunday. "All we know is we need it. And last night he played all his minutes at the centre, where we needed it even more. It will be a collective effort. But there wont be anybody else we can turn to." The Heat have an offensive style all their own, the so-called positionless approach. The sstarting lineup in Game 4 was James, Wade, Mario Chalmers and Mike Miller along with Bosh, meaning it was four perimeter players with one big man, against a Spurs lineup that has, in Duncan, one of the best power forwards of all time.dddddddddddd Bosh played Duncan evenly. Both scored 20. The other star matchups, those were Miami routs. James and Wade combined for 65 points. San Antonios Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili combined for 20. "When those guys play like that," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of Miamis three stars, "you better be playing a more perfect game." Spoelstras decision to start Miller in Game 4 sparked a flurry of trickledown effects. The Spurs went to their bench 47 seconds into the game. Millers mere presence helped open up some space for James and Wade, and their big scoring nights were no coincidence. It also gave Bosh extra room to manoeuvr inside, where he seemed active as hed been at any point in the series, maybe the entire playoffs. "I was able to get in the paint a lot more," Bosh said. "I think it really opened up my game a little bit. The jumper really wasnt there in the first half, but it came eventually. I was just able to get in a really good flow." The second half, he was darn close to perfect. He made five of his six shots, had nine rebounds, two blocks to keep the game tied in a two-possession span midway through the third quarter, even got on the floor for a loose ball as teammates around him couldnt wait to pull him up and slap his backside. And when the night was over, Bosh really wasnt all that fascinated with his stat line. All that mattered was the win. "Its just the disposition, first of all, with myself, and then everybody else," Bosh said. "Those things are going to follow. I dont really pay too much attention to the numbers. Its just how Im doing, the energy and effort that Im giving out there, and everything else falls into place. I always believe that if I bring the necessary energy, things will go well." Thats why the Heat have called him their most important player for the last three years. Thats also why, after a game where they grabbed the headlines, James and Wade wouldnt walk into the Texas night without their big man. "Ever since weve gotten together, since the first game, weve had to respond to adversity," Bosh said. "Thats something that we pride ourselves on. And we really concentrate. When things get rough and theyre not going like you want them to go, thats when we pull together even more."
