When the dust settled over Columbus, Ohio, the Columbus Crew emerged from its matchup with Nashville SC on Sunday night in the MLS Cup playoffs wearing the bright yellow kit the Crew has become known for in the club’s 25 years of existence. The expansion side, Nashville, had merely adopted the yellow, but the Crew was born in it.
As if showing up and stealing Columbus’ beloved colors wasn’t enough, the fans of Nashville began to call themselves “Massive.” And massive they were, until they got hit by the bright yellow massive bus that is the Crew.
The Black & Gold are moving on to the Eastern Conference Final to take on the New England Revolution, and they did so at the expense of Nashville SC.
Was it the most exciting game in the world? Well, that depends on who you ask. Crew Review host Andrew Atkins said it was a slog of a match, while guest co-host Drew Niccum found the defense clash to be entertaining.
Here’s what to expect from the newest edition of The Crew Review:
- Andrew complains about being old and tired.
- Why is Columbus truly massive?
- The hosts discuss why they feel like Andrew Tarbell shut up his vocal doubters, and the audience seemed to overwhelmingly agree.
- With all of the Eastern Conference high seeds falling, is Crew winning the MLS Cup destiny at this point?
