The Crew Wars is about to add its next episode on the pitch…
Columbus Crew SC will battle Supporters’ Shield winner and MLS heavyweight Toronto FC tomorrow night in Canada in the second leg of the 2017 MLS Eastern Conference Final at 7:30 p.m. ET on FS1. And the stakes for this match aren’t just for a spot in MLS Cup but the opportunity to host MLS Cup. This massive game awaits the Crew and its vocal #SaveTheCrew movement (The Resistance) in the stands and here in Columbus whereby a victory could be the best-televised PR moment for Columbus this season, as well as simultaneously being the worst televised PR moment for the Empire (snakes Crew SC owner Anthony Precourt, Crew SC President of Business Operations Andy Loughnane, Precourt Sports Ventures President Dave Greeley and MLS Commissioner Don Garber).
More #SaveTheCrew analysis will come this week as details confirming that Empire representatives Mr. Precourt and Mr. Garber told Resistance forces Columbus Mayor Ginther and Columbus Partnership President & CEO Alex Fischer that they could pay the $5 million fee to apply for an expansion team in the future (FOR THE TEAM THAT’S ALREADY HERE!) during their closed-door New York meeting. Plus, there have been back-and-forth reports involving land being offered for a proposed Crew stadium in downtown Columbus in recent days.
For today, however, before this soccer storm returns to our television screens via the pivotal second leg of the Eastern Conference Final, this blog post is being written with my nieces and nephews in mind.
Paddington, the live-action film with a CGI bear that was a box office hit with rave reviews from 2014 has received the sequel treatment. Accordingly, this fun, heartwarming story that’s been beautifully produced for the silver screen released its first full U.S. trailer via Warner Bros. Pictures earlier today.
If you can’t bear to wait, no worries, as you can enjoy the rambunctious Paddington 2 starting January 12, 2018.
