The Columbus Crew and the L.A. Galaxy played in front of a saddened 17,019 fans mourning the loss of Kirk Urso on Wednesday night. While the game ended in a 1-1 draw, the real story was all that occurred to honor Kirk. A moment of silence and video tribute before the game, shirts being sold, ribbons and bracelets being handed out, a memorial in front of the Lamar Hunt statue, a minute of silence from 15:00-15:59 followed by a bagpipe-lead rendition of “Amazing Grace,” and lots and lots of tifo.
Here were some of my views from the match:
