Keep the Crew in Columbus

It was one of those days in late November in L.A. when the wind was strong enough to want a jacket, but hot enough to make you sweat as soon as the long sleeves went on.

I remember club legend and forever captain, Frankie Hejduk, climbing into the stands to celebrate with the traveling fans, singing "Columbus 'til I Die." This moment in Crew history, and countless others, are being threatened by the current owner, Anthony Precourt of Precourt Sports Ventures (PSV), and his efforts to move the team to Austin, Texas.
