Crew Brand Ambassador Frankie Hejduk joined local sportscasters Clay Hall, David Wilkinson and Matt Barnes, along with Max & Erma's President Steve Weis, in the “Monster Meat” eating challenge benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbus with Max & Erma’s & Ringling Bros. Thursday afternoon at the Schottenstein Center.

Hejduk and the others went head-to-head with seven Asian elephants in the competition, with the humans eating Max & Erma's sliders and the elephants devouring carrots, bread, watermelon and lettuce.

Lacking appetite, the former Crew and U.S. Men's National Team defender only finished four sliders to finish well-behind the sportscasters. The real winner in the end was the kids of Columbus as Max & Erma's donated $18,000 to Boys and Girls Clubs.

Following a morning in which the Black & Gold caught-up with the broadcast team from World Wrestling Entertainment’s Monday Night RAW, a group of Crew players got a backstage opportunity to meet the RAW team that was in town for last night’s show at Nationwide Arena.
 
Crew goalkeepers Andy Gruenebaum, Matt Lampson, Daniel Withrow, alongside forwards Aaron Schoenfeld, Ethan Finlay, Shawn Sloan and Head Athletic Trainer Dave Lagow were able to hang out with WWE Superstars prior to the event. The Black & Gold taped video segments for WWE Active – WWE’s in-match digital platform – as well.

It's no surpise that three of Major League Soccer's most prolific scorers in Jeff Cunningham, Jaime Moreno and Brian McBride have done the most damage in the long-standing rivalry between the Columbus Crew and D.C. United. During his time with the Black & Gold, McBride tallied 11 times against United in the rivalry's early days. Moreno was always a thorn in the Crew's side for United, finding the net 15 times in 37 career regular season matches with D.C. against Columbus. As MLS' all-time leading scorer, Cunningham scored five times against D.C. United while playing with the Crew. In total, Cunningham scored 11 times against United.

Eddie Gaven leads all active Crew players with two goals in the rivalry. Gaven also tallied twice against United with the NY/NJ MetroStars, including his first career goal coming on a game-winner against D.C. after entering the match as an emergency goalkeeper. Both of Gaven's goals for the Black & Gold have come in the Crew's last five matches against United.

On the D.C. side, forward Carlos Ruiz has scored 10 times against the Black & Gold. In his first season with United, he has yet to score against the Crew for the Black-and-Red. Six current United players have each scored one goal in the rivalry.

It took him until his fifth game in Black & Gold, but once Stern John scored, he didn't stop. John netted his first tally for the Crew on April 18, 1998 against the Miami Fusion. The Trini striker added two more in a 23-minute span to lead the Black & Gold to a 5-1 victory over the Fusion.

John bagged his first of five hat tricks in his two seasons with the Crew, a total that is still a franchise record. The striker scored 44 goals through two seasons in Columbus, good for third-most in club history.
