Twitter Reacts: Crew SC loses but there’s actually next year

Despite the Black & Gold losing to the Red Bulls, fans remain optimistic for next season.

It’s been a long and tumultuous year, but the 2018 Columbus Crew SC season reached its conclusion on Sunday night. A 3-0 shutout loss to the New York Red Bulls put an end to a lengthy season in Central Ohio. Fans anticipated that this day would come, but weren’t sure of the emotions that would accompany it.

Luckily, on Oct. 12, the community was provided with some clarity when an investment group consisting of Pete Edwards and Cleveland Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam emerged with a plan to Save The Crew.

With the promise of that security blanket lurking in fans minds, it made Sunday’s loss easier to cope with. Fans took to social media to express their appreciation of the teams effort throughout the season.

The Crew SC story has captured the hearts of the entire Central Ohio community. From city officials, local celebrities, businesses or former players, everyone stood firmly in the corner of the Black & Gold.

It’s been a crazy season and one that will linger in the minds of Crew fans for a lifetime. It’s not common to see the little guy dethrone the big cooperation, but that’s exactly what Save The Crew did. Because of the efforts of dedicated individuals, no one should be ashamed of saying “there’s always next year.”

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2019.
