A thought occurred to me during Sunday's MLS Cup final between the Columbus Crew and New York Red Bulls -- why haven't the Crew adopted the "Submarine" nickname? Spanish Primera side Villareal CF might already colloquially own the "Yellow Submarine" title, but it could apply to the Ohio team. Submarines have crews, rights? And think of the Beatles-inspired sing-a-longs in the stands.
Either way it's better than the "America's Hardest Working Team" motto, which seems fairly impossible to prove. At least some Crew fans have adopted the "Massive" nickname.
However lame the motto, it's appropriate today as the Crew won their first MLS Cup final, beating the New York Red Bulls, 3-1, at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.
