Massive Memoirs – Jorge

Editor’s note: Welcome to another addition of “Massive Memoirs.” Recently, we asked for help from our Spanish speaking community for this next piece. The response from fans was overwhelming, but we were led to Janelle Henderson and her husband Jorge.

This love letter to the “Yellow Soccer Team” is written in Spanish and followed by an English translation.

One thing is for certain, love for the Columbus Crew knows no bounds.

Mi nombre es Jorge, llegue a esta gran nacion hace 17 años y nunca voy a olvidar que entre todas las dichas que he encontrado aqui una de las mas especiales es el Columbus Crew.

Fue alrededor de el 2010 cuando conoci a mi ahora esposa y siendo ella una de las mas fieles seguidoras del Crew y de Nordecke.  Mi inmersion en este ambiente fue inevitable.

Poco a poco aprendi los canticos, aprendi que ese dia de juego me servia para relajarme y escapar de la vida cotidiana. Me encanto el ver familias conviviendo y disfrutando, aprendi a seguir el equipo juego a juego, he visto como gente de todas las generaciones, sexos, razas y condiciones sociales siguen y apoyan al Crew con su pasion por este deporte.

Me lastima el que la avaricia ha extendido sus redes hasta alcanzar ” nuestro equipo”, un equipo con el que sufrimos y gozamos juntos, al que seguimos juego a juego.

Columbus Crew, contigo gozamos las mieles de las victorias, la amargura de las derrotas pero sobre todo contigo unidos vamos a hacer todo anueatro alcance para que no dejes a esta ciudad y aficion que te vieron nacer y crecer en todos estos años: “WE ARE NOT  DONE YET”

My name is Jorge, and I arrived in this great country 17 years ago. Among all of the joys I have found here, one of the most special is the Columbus Crew.

It was around 2010 that I met my now wife, who is one of the most faithful followers of the Crew and a regular of the Nordecke.

My immersion into this environment was inevitable.

Little by little, I learned the Crew songs, and I found that game day served to help me relax and escape from the daily life. I love seeing families living and enjoying their lives with the team. I began following the team throughout the season, and at each game, I have seen people of all generations, sexes, races, and social conditions who follow and support the Crew with their passion for this sport.

It pains me to know that greed has extended its grasp to reach “our team,” a team with which we suffer and celebrate, which we follow from game to game.

Columbus Crew, with you we enjoy the sweet victories as well as the bitterness of the defeats. Above all else, with you together, we are going to amplify our voices together so that you do not leave this city, a team which was born here and has grown all of these years.  WE ARE NOT DONE YET.
