09:53 AM ET 12.14 | Until now, he was little more than an "if" around MLS circles -- a world-class attacker Toronto FC supporters and media talked about with both cautious optimism and uncertainty. Still distrustful from the Diego Forlan fiasco this past season, TFC supporters have been patiently standing by, waiting for MLSE head honcho Tim Leiweke -- The Ultimate Entertainer, as past employees refer to him -- to produce his final act. On Friday, Leiweke and the Reds provided fans with an appetizer. Gilberto Oliveira Souza Junior, a 24-year-old Brazilian striker, was unveiled at the Air Canada Centre as Toronto's newest Designated Player, spurring little more than a golf clap.
