What will they do tomorow night from 7:00PM until the end of the basketball game?
Last night saw the return of thousands turning out to watch the Leafs game in Maple Leafs Square - just outside the ACC. Tomorrow with a 5:30PM tip-off to the Raps home playoff game - undoubtedly the late afternoon early evening crowd will be dominated by those decked out in Jurassic Park/Raptors gear with thousands of Raps fans gathering outside as 20,000 pour into the ACC to watch the game.
But what happens outside when the Leafs Game 2 in Washington starts shortly after 7:00PM? The basketball game won't end until between 8:00PM - 8:30PM.
Do they go to a split screen outside and the fans out there start with merged cheers? Lets Go Raptors!, Go Leafs Go!, Lets Go Raptors! Go Leafs Go!
Do they stick with basketball until the game is over and then flip from Jurassic Park to Maple Leafs Square mode as thousands pour out from the ACC. Do they start showing the Leafs game inside the ACC when the basketball game ends and invite the Raptors/Leafs fans to stay and watch?
I wonder who is having to make these - nice to have for once - decisions at MLSE.
Unlike last year when by now everything in and round the ACC was all Raptors red - this year the entire area is almost schizophrenic looking decked out in support of both teams. These shots I took walking through the Galleria area between Union Station and the ACC the other night on my way home from the Jays game.
