After a two-game road trip that saw forward Jeff Cunningham set the Columbus Crew's all-time goal-scoring record and tie the all-time MLS mark with a 90th-minute game-winner at Vancouver last Wednesday (July 6), the Black & Gold returns home to host Western Conference foe San Jose this Saturday, July 16, at 7:30 p.m. at Crew Stadium.
The match will be televised live regionally on ONN with Dwight Burgess and Duncan Oughton calling all the action and Katie Witham reporting from the sidelines. It will also be broadcast in high definition exclusively to Time Warner Cable Mid-Ohio customers in Columbus on Ch. 1311. The game can be heard in English on News/Talk 610 WTVN and on-line at TheCrew.com, with Neil Sika and John Bluem behind the microphone, and in Spanish on La Mega 103.1, with Carlos Cordova and Benny Pietrangelo on the call.
The centerpiece of the evening will be the induction of Crew icon Brian McBride into the club's new Circle of Honor. Fulham legend McBride will be honored at halftime, with a ceremony that will recap his many contributions to the Black & Gold and unveil a new permanent presence within the stadium. While in town, McBride and his Attacking Soccer Academy are partnering with the Crew on two three-day camps from July 14-16.
