SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

There are so many people on Toronto parade route that the mass of bodies has made it difficult to get all the buses and cars through the route. They are running over 2 hours behind.

I feel for the people that camped overnight in the final location.

It was supposed to be over by now, but the buses haven't even arrived at Nathan Phillips Square.

The party is going to include a four-song set by Drake.

It's been a sunny (but not oppressively hot) day, so that's been a bonus.

The estimate is 2 million along the parade route.

On a work day.

Wow, 2 million? That's awesome! Have fun, brother!

It's indeed awesome; that's about 5.5% of the entire population of Canada. An equivalent percentage of the population of the USA would be more than 16 million people. Hope it's all going well and is under control despite the lateness.

This was only about 500 meters into the parade. The crowd was pretty thin there.

This was in the heart of the city. The wall of humanity just stretches out to the horizon.
