Wow, I skip a day of reading about the Columbus Crew from Shawn Mitchell and this what he posts. The photo below is proof enough that MLS is reaching out and is actually sticking with folks outside of the country. Seriously, this was taken during the Boca Juniors Copa Libertadores match on Tuesday against Venezuela’s Union Maracaibo in Buenos Aires.

Great photo and it shows that the fan is indeed a Columbus Crew fan. It doesn’t hurt that the player’s jersey he wears use to play for Juniors. I love it though, nice to see MLS jerseys selling aboard. Also, its easy to see that this fan is a die-hard Schelotto fan.

    all the commentators (john harkes is a hypocritical idiot and probably just as bad as eric wynalda, btw) talked about during the DC United-Crew game was how they were broadcasting the game live in argentina, as if it were some new amazing technological breakthrough and we should be dancing in the streets and praising god for the ability to transport a live video feed to south america.

    how crazy is it – that kid has a Gullie shirt all the way in Argentina, but I can't find any Crew merch in Columbus?

    That's some serious irony right there.

    Alright, we sent some Boca fan a MLS shirt to wear to South American games, now if we can just get the South American passion at MLS games in return.
