Name: Brendan Schimmel
Supports: Aston Villa, Celtic, Southhampton, USMNT
Favorite Revs Moment: Sitting in section 120 in 2000 arguing with a fan who didn’t believe that Jamar Beasley, then a revs forward and brother of Demarcus Beasley was a superstar. A 15 year old version of me made a ridiculous guarantee that he’d score a goal in a game against San Jose. He scored two and I was applauded for my foresight. Jamar Beasley’s career did not fare so well.
Name: Steven Erickson
Supports: Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Herth BSC
Favorite Revs Moment: 1 – 0 win against DC in the Eastern Conference Finals in 2006. Twellman scored in the 4th minute and it was a nail bitter from there on out. It was an amazing feeling being able to walk out of an away stadium knowing you’re going to MLS Cup.

Favorite Revs Moment: My favori te Revs moment was my first Revs game. It was the Revs vs KC Wizards game back in 1996. It was a beautiful June night. Remember those uniforms…hideous. Regardless, I was 13 and I was with my youth soccer team. This was my first professional game ever and the atmosphere was electric. The fort was rocking, the staduim was full of the noise, the play on the field was entertaining, and I was hooked. The game was tied 1-1 after 90 minutes and the Revs won during the penalty shoot out.
