Every New England Revolution fan has fond memories of the legendary Taylor Twellman. So, it should come as no surprise that they would go to great lengths to make the ESPN commentator feel welcome on ThinkTaylor/Concussion Awareness Night.
On Saturday, the Revs went ThinkTaylor orange as a way of spreading concussion awareness. The event started in the parking lot as fans were encouraged to take the #TTPledge. Those who recite the pledge promise to be educated, honest, and supportive when it comes to concussions.
Fans continued to show their support of both the movement and Twellman when they entered the stadium as they lifted orange signs when the clock struck 20. The number 20 was worn by Twellman when he played in New England from 2002-2010.
The most significant sign of affection came just before kickoff as The Midnight Riders lifted a tifo that was inspired by the musical Hamilton. The artwork features Twellman in the spot of the Founding Father with the words "an American striker" prominently displayed. It was a touching tribute to one of the league's best goal-scorers
