The past week has been very difficult for Columbus Crew fans. And tonight, the Crew traveled down to Georgia to play Atlanta United for the opening game of the Eastern Conference playoffs inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on artificial turf.
Let’s not get started on the turf issue in the year 2017…
Much has been said about the #SaveTheCrew movement in recent days, locally and nationally, as should be the case. However, right now, actions really can speak louder than words.
That is what a massive COLUMBUS Crew can do on national television with their backs completely against the wall, put there by Anthony Precourt and Don Garber’s MLS. The Columbus Crew will host the first leg of the MLS Cup Eastern Conference Semifinal against New York City FC on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, at 8:00 p.m. on ESPN.
You know how people say something isn’t true unless it’s true?
For example, speculation has been that Daniel Craig would eventually return as the iconic 007 after a long break following the Spectre. That’s been what many people (including myself) have believed to be true for quite some time, in our minds.
Apologies, Mr. Craig/James Bond/007.
This is amazing news. While Sean Connery will always be known as the greatest James Bond in cinematic history, Daniel Craig has given the Scotsman a serious run for his money. Partly because Daniel Craig has brought unrivaled modernity, realism and grit to the character. But also in part because Daniel Craig’s James Bond is a more complicated and conflicted character with a relatable (as relatable as 007 can be) emotional range to how a normal person would react and think beyond the flashy gadgets and unforgettable catchphrases.
So, it’s officially one more film for Daniel Craig as James Bond. And that’s exactly what 007 fans have been saying since Mr. Craig’s brilliant first-go as the British spy in Casino Royale back in 2006. And we’ll keep on saying it…one more film…one more film…one more film, please.
Just don’t ask Daniel Craig that one question two days after wrapping Bond 25 (title TBD).
P.S. Remember when “Damn, Daniel!” was a Snapchat craze?
