The 38-year old veteran played his last game at Toyota Park, a 0-0 draw with DC United, and was humbled by the reaction of the supporters following the final whistle.
"I was just humbled," McBride said. "That kind of pageantry I'm not used to. It was very nice for the Fire to do that, and my teammates, too."
Teammate CJ Brown added: "I thought the fans and the way the Fire saw Brian out was very good - very respectful and well deserved. You're going to miss a player like that in this locker room, in this club, in soccer in general. I'm glad that we at least got a result out of his day. He's going to be very missed."
