Schedule released - start planning your life or at least your season

The MLS schedule was released today. The TFC home and away schedule is listed below. Breaking down the home schedule by the month it's either feast or famine for the Toronto fans.
Home games by month
April- 2
May- 4
June- 1
July -1
August- 3
September- 3
October- 1
Yes, there will be a friendly in there somewhere and Canada Cup games should also bolster one of the scarce months, but what is the difference in home dates in June and July this year compared to last when the FIFA U20 was being hosted ? Not much.
Whether the schedule helps or hurts the team will be a matter of debate. I like the home and home series showing up twice, both Chivas USA and DC United play TFC that way. There is still so much to learn about this years team, but based on last year's character, playing twice in a row seems to favour the TFC style. Despite the last game being in expansion San Jose, the season does seem to end on an uphill note. Houston, New York, Dallas and Chicago are all tough games that time of year.
