I was at the game...absolutely AMAZING! The atmosphere was electric and the fans were exstatic. The game was exciting to watch and the win was a great cap to the night. As Kingfish said, ¡Columbus es un pueblo de fútbol! Go Crew! ¡Viva el Crew!

Woot Woo!!! Huge game. Must admit it hurt a little bit to see McBride get the goal, nonetheless is was great to see Blanco whine his way through the second half. On to California!

McBride's goal was scary, especially the way the Crew was playing in the first half. I would've liked to have been a fly on the wall to what Sigi said to the guys during half-time because they came out and broke Chicago's back straight away.

The Crew made the front page of the Dispatch and now Mayor Coleman stood in front of the Nordecke.  Seems that Columbus is really starting to love their Crew!

As we singing and walking out of the stadium, I remarked that I forgot what it's like to cheer for a winner. The Bengals in '06 and the Reds in '99, '94, and of course '90.

These are a few of the many quality videos made about the Crew this year.  Being a part of the evolution of the Nordecke has been amazing.  Columbus has had the most improved supporters group by far this year!  Hopefully we can keep this support up next year after we win the Cup! :-D

The Columbus Crew has spent its 2008 season exorcising old demons. In doing so, they've been playing like a team possessed by more benevolent spirits.

Crew's history is a lesson in perseverance
Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 3:18 AM
By Shawn Mitchell, The Columbus Dispatch


LOS ANGELES -- The 13th season of the Crew has been the most fortuitous in its history. One of 10 original Major League Soccer teams, it has often been a leader among its peers in its off-the-field endeavors but has fallen short on the pitch. On Sunday, it will play in its first league championship game.

Mayors Place Wager On MLS Cup
 
Sunday, Nov 23, 2008 - 10:47 AM

By Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The mayors of Columbus and New York are putting beer, chocolate and pizza on the line over Sunday's Major League Soccer Cup Final.

Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman is promising a package of Ohio State Buckeye candies - a chocolate-and-peanut butter concoction in the shape of a buckeye - and a case of beer from the Columbus Brewing Co. should the New York Red Bulls win.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promising even more if the Columbus Crew win: a large pizza from Basille's Restaurant on Staten Island, a sandwich from Carnegie Deli in Manhattan and a case of Brooklyn Lager from Brooklyn Brewery.
