An Impactful Crew Road Trip

By Keith Naas

Dayton, Ohio – September 5 10:42 AM

“I just came up with a crazy idea…to go see the Crew in Montreal. Game’s at 3 on 10/6. That would be a blast. Can you free yourself up?”

This was the text my brother sent.  My brain immediately started thinking through that weekend knowing that it would be a hefty road trip and I had some other things on the calendar.  After serious thought I responded:

“Maybe”

Save(d) The Crew:

Oh the irony. Ohio Revised Code 9.67 was created by legislators due to the Browns relocation to Baltimore. More than 20 years later, a group of investors led by the Browns ownership stated that they are in the final negotiation to purchase the Columbus Crew. This news, which previously was a dream, became a reality on Friday. We gathered on Friday at business ally Endeavor Brewing to celebrate as the saga has nearly ended, almost a year to the day from that nightmare that occurred on October 16th, 2017. Everyone involved in the Save The Crew movement, from Columbus, to across Ohio, to across the globe played a part in this success story. The doubters stated that a few “hundred” (hah) supporters would not be able to change the direction. Continue reading Monday Recap 10/15/18

Saving the Crew, One Cannoli at a Time

By Evonne Segall

You know what’s so great about volunteering with Save The Crew? You get to hang out with friends, or strangers who become friends, while talking about your favorite thing, and introducing your favorite thing to new strangers, who might become friends someday. This past weekend, several of us brought the Save The Crew tent to the Columbus Italian Festival and did just that. A huge thank you goes to Joey DiNapoli who made all the arrangements for Save The Crew to participate. I hope you got to enjoy some cannoli, brother.

Italian Festival:

Members from the STC team set up a tent at this past weekend’s Columbus Italian Festival. The tent saw a lot of traffic as many people came to chat about the Crew. Some individuals reminisced about legends such as Brian McBride, while others chatted optimistically about the future of the team. The STC team gave out dozens of stickers, as many people wanted to take something home with them (perhaps, we’ll see the stickers show up in Savannah, GA). We would like to give a MASSIVE thank you to the STC volunteers, and everyone that came out to the tent to support us. Continue reading Monday Recap 10/8/18

Feeding the Crew – Bruna

While recalling this story to share with you, it occurs to me that as we live each day we’re curating our life stories. Who knew, while we were living it, that one day it would be story worthy? To us, it was another day at Café del Mondo…

We were blessed, through my son Alex’s networking and determination, to be feeding the Crew – in many ways. Continue reading Feeding the Crew – Bruna

2008 MLS Cup Anniversary:

As we know,  2018 marks the ten year anniversary of our first and only MLS cup victory. Goals from Ale Moreno, Chad Marshall, and Frankie Hejduk sealed the win for the Crew. On Saturday members from the 2008 championship team came to Mapfre to celebrate their anniversary. Players such as Gino Padula, William Hesmer, Frankie, and Duncan Oughton received their honors before running across the field to the Nordecke to celebrate – and to join in the “Save The Crew!” chants. These legendary players from Crew lore are a part of our club’s great history. Perhaps, in another 10 years we will celebrate the 2008 MLS Cup win AND the 2018 MLS Cup win. Save The Crew!

Earnie Stewart at Mapfre:

Earnie Stewart is the current general manager of the USMNT. He is in charge of finding a new head coach for the National team.

Gregg is well on his way on leading the Crew to a fourth playoff birth. Do you want to see Gregg take the opening as USMNT coach? Continue reading Monday Recap 9/24/2018

Black and Gold Supporters in Nashville

On a Nashville September Tuesday night, three of our very own took the field for the USMNT. Columbus is the home of Dos a Cero so it was only fitting that the Crew’s Zack Steffen, Gyasi Zardes, and Captain Wil Trapp took a bit of that history to Nashville to represent the USA in their clash against Mexico. It was a clean sheet for Zack, a scary tackle for Wil, and a 1-0 victory for the Red, White & Blue.
