#TIFOSWEAT Instructions: 9/26/2015 vs. Portland September 26 2015
So, you scanned the QR Code - look at you with your tech-savvyness! Very impressive!
Thanks for helping us deploy this week's #TIFOSWEAT project! Here's a little Q&A session to address some of your more burning questions...
Q: What is this thing you've just handed to me?
A: It's called a two-stick, and you'll see them in the supporter sections of most MLS games. They are pieces of fabric with a design held up by two sticks/poles, usually made of PVC pipes. It's one of the many methods of showing your support affection for your local team. Here's an example from the match vs. Sporting Kansas City last month...
Q: What am I to do with this "two-stick" thing of which you speak?
A: So at halftime there's going to be a huge on-field ceremony, accompanied by a video of the top five moments in Crew history on the scoreboard. Upon conclusion of the video, there will be a PA announcement saying "thank you" to all of us fans for supporting the team. THE VERY INSTANT THIS PA ANNOUNCEMENT starts, unroll your two-stick and hold over your head as high as you can! Jump around, scream and shout, and make sure that two-stick is held up as high as you can hold it! Keep it held there for 60 seconds, and make sure that you aren't holding it backwards! Frankie Hejduk is going to run over to the Nordecke (the section of crazy people in the corner to your right) with all of the former players - keep the two-stick raised until they all get to the corner and start doing whatever it is they are going to do. This whole process shouldn't take more than 60-90 seconds total. Also, make sure everyone around you is holding up their two-stick as well, and make sure they KEEP IT UP the entire time!
Q: What do I do with this "two-stick" after the halftime ceremony is over?
A: Feel free to hold it up during the second half whenever you'd like! Just don't hold it up during the first half, please. As is the case with most #TIFOSWEAT projects, this is a surprise, and we don't want to ruin that surprise by showing anyone what we're doing in the first half. Cool? Cool!
Q: Yes, but what do I do with this "two-stick" after the game is over?
A: Part of the idea behind this project was to get more sections of the stadium involved in supporting our yellow soccer team as much as humanly possible. With that in mind, this two-stick is a gift to you! Please take it home with you if you'd like; bring it back for future games, hang it in your living room, give it to a friend, use it to wrap your newborn tiny baby infant child after they enter the world - whatever you want to do with it, do that! If you don't want to take it home with you, just leave it on your seat and we'll come by after the game and collect them for reuse.
Q: How do I get involved with #TIFOSWEAT?
A: Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the distribution list. This is how we let everyone know what we're doing, when a project is coming up, and where we're working on said project. No spam, we promise - there are maybe ten e-mails sent out per season.
