The Art of Soccer Scarf Diplomacy at 40,000 Feet with the Chicago Fire Editor Jeff Crandall
in Timbers Army green & white

There is a certain art to diplomacy--particularly when it comes to a classic soccer scarf.

In the case of editor Jeff Crandall--a diplomat well-versed in the in's and out's of supporters scarf culture--it should come as no surprise that when he happened upon a flight attendant who was a diehard Timbers Army supporter, that an exchange of scarves would happen--mid-flight, no less.

Read the excellent story about how no matter where a soccer supporter may be, the act of sharing the soccer scarf talisman trumps all rivalry.
