It’s great; Taylor Twellman has joined the growing list of gay4soccer allies. As a Union fan, I am ecstatic.
Union fans feel a particular kinship with TT, not only was he the Union’s 2011 color commentator, but he also participated in a memorable inside joke with some of the members of the Sons of Ben via Twitter.
Dubbed the ‘Meow Mafia’ (paying homage to a classic scene in the film “Super Troopers”) they challenged TT to say ‘MEOW’ on television…and he did!! A Philly meme was born. Even Union Midfielder Kyle Nakazawa’s band gave the Meow Mafia a shout-out!
One day I found myself crossing paths with TT after hanging TIFO in The River End before a match. All I could muster was “Have a good day, MEOW!”. TT laughed and Dellacamera did the ‘gotch-ya’ point!! Classic!!
Welcome to the Allies List Taylor Twellman, you’re making all of us in Philly proud!!
(TT also wins for best shirt/tie combinations on TV. Yes, better than Shannon Sharpe. Double proud!)
