Columbus, OH - After hearing of the trade from the New England Revolution to the Columbus Crew, Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) hung up his phone, hugged his mother and gave thanks for a second chance at cracking the lineup once more.
"I thought I was done in this league," stated TAM to The Nutmeg News on Thursday. "However, we can all now see that if you keep working, if you keep grinding, you will have a chance to really make an impact. Glory to God on this momentous day."
While most Revolution fans indicate that Targeted Allocation Money wasn't living up to the hype during his time in Revolution colors, many of the fans that we spoke with wished him well as he headed off for the Yellow, Black, Blue, White and other colors they added to the third kit of Columbus.
"He was versatile, and they really tried to get him to make an impact but it was very clear that TAM needed a second chance somewhere else," stated Revolution fan Heidi Montcalm. "We liked his fire, but he just wasn't useful for us in this current lineup."
Crew fans have stated disbelief that they acquired the vaunted Targeted Allocation Money as many fans rushed the team store to purchase kits with #10 Money kits.
"He's Ours! WHAT A DAY TO BE ALIVE! We acquired Targeted Allocation Money," stated David Burroughs of Columbus.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as TAM prepares for his first day with the Crew.
