How did you spend your first night in Toronto?

Adam Coleman, Defensive Line

"I just walked around with some of my teammates and checked out the town. We got something to eat and checked out the ice skating rink behind the hotel. There's pretty good food up here."

Eddie Adamski, Center
"I went out and saw the city. There are some really cool places. It's a very diverse culture and I met a lot of new people. I had some good times. More importantly, I was with the team, hanging out with them. I had fun."

Marcus Lewis, Wide Receiver
"We had a great time last night hanging out with some teammates of mine. Some people out in Toronto showed us a good time. I think it's a great city."

Preston Williams, Wide Receiver

"I went to a couple Toronto clubs and saw the nightlife and how they partied. The people were a lot nicer than I thought they'd be, being in a foreign country I saw a couple of the pubs too."

Ryan Morris, Quarterback

"I did a lot of walking. I really had no idea where we were going. I think I probably walked on every street in Toronto.  We were told by one guy to go to Wayne Gretzky's. That seems like the place to go. We'll have to see how that is. I feel I know the streets pretty well after all the walking I did last night."

Mike Kritikos, Defensive End

"We had a good time. We went to a couple different places and met up with random people everywhere. Everyone's really nice too. We had a good time in the city. We had no idea where we were going but we knew we were looking for a good time. We found it everywhere we went. People around here are really nice."

Cory Hanson, Linebacker

"We hung around Toronto and saw the city a little bit. We went to the underground mall. That was really interesting. We hung around the player's lounge. We had a good time just seeing what the city had to offer.

D.J. Pirkle, Defensive Linemen

"As soon as Jake [Coffman] and I got here, he's my roommate we left the hotel and started walking away from the entertainment district and checked out the tourist stuff. We checked out the ice rink and the mall. We came back and met up with everybody in the entertainment district."

Jordan Delegal, Linebacker

"I went out and took a tour of the city. It's great. It's like a miniature Chicago or New York. There are lights everywhere. The diversity here is crazy. It's kind of like Miami with the diversity. We went saw a couple places. We ate at the Hard Rock. After that we went to a couple of bistros and checked out the mall."
