Last September, in the days before the LA Galaxy came to Crew Stadium with the man who many of us still thought of as our captain now playing as a member of their team, I posted this image on this blog.
It was surreal to see Frankie Hejduk on the Crew Stadium turf again, running full steam as he always did, gesturing emphatic encouragement to the supporters as he always did, celebrating a victory with the Nordecke as he always did . . . in Los Angeles Galaxy blue and gold.
With all due respect to Columbus Crew captain Chad Marshall, on the night of September 24, 2011, Frankie was still Our Captain.
