We’ve seen our team fail to win in Colorado, defeat two Canadian teams, lose to an energy drink, and allow a previously winless team to defeat us.
We’ve seen Emilio Renteria’s goal drought, Milovan Mirosevic struggle to adjust to MLS play, and rookie Kirk Urso start every game in the center of midfield. We’ve seen Eric Gehrig go from a unanimous Man of the Match to two subpar performances. We’ve seen goalie Andy Gruenebuam earn two straight shutouts before giving up four the next game.
We’ve seen new stadium upgrades, a new jersey sponsorship, the demise of the Crewzers, and the return of Eddie Gaven’s beard.
We’ve seen the damage a single bird can do to a charter bus windshield.
We’ve waited to see Ben Speas in action, and we’ll have to continue to wait to see Rich Balchan, Tommy Heinemann, and William Hesmer. We’ve waited for news about Julius James’ collapsed lung, and we’ve wished him good luck.
We’ve heard Chad Marshall drop the f-bomb on national television. We’ve heard more rumors of a Designated Player and new future-stadium locations.
We’re only five games in.
Sounds like just another Columbus Crew season to me.
