How quickly they grow up!

Crew Stadium turns 10 years old this weekend as Columbus (0-2-5) seeks to break its season-opening slump against the Kansas City Wizards. To celebrate the occasion, the Crew is charging 1999 prices for tickets and concessions.

I figured I'd celebrate with a list of Crew Stadium's 10 greatest soccer moments. (Apologies to fans of high school football and Rascal Flatts.)

May 15, 1999: Crew 2, Revolution 0 - Columbus opened up its new digs with flair, toppling New England with goals by Jeff Cunningham and Stern John.

March 25, 2000: Crew 2, Earthquakes 1 - Robert Warzycha, back when he was known as "The Polish Rifle," scores the first regular-season MLS golden goal to win the Crew's home opener in overtime.

Feb. 28, 2001: U.S. 2, Mexico 0 - Goals from Earnie Stewart and Josh Wolff secured a "dos-a-cero" World Cup qualifying victory for the U.S. in freezing temperatures. The gringos would go on to down Mexico twice more by the same score at Crew Stadium, but "La Guerra Fria" has yet to be topped.

May 19, 2001: Crew 2, United 1 - Playing with nine men after absorbing two red cards in Greg Andrulis' first game as coach, Columbus battled rival D.C. United into overtime, where Cunningham converted a John Harkes pass with one minute remaining for one of the most dramatic Crew victories ever.

Oct. 21, 2001: Earthquakes 2, Galaxy 1 - Dwayne De Rosario scored in overtime to secure San Jose's victory over Los Angeles in the 2001 MLS Cup.

Oct. 24, 2002: Crew 1, Galaxy 0 - A goal from Freddy Garcia was enough to lift Columbus over MLS Cup Champion Los Angeles for the Crew's first and only Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

Sept. 28, 2003: U.S. 3, North Korea 0 - Mia Hamm and company obliterated their North Korean competitors as the Americans rolled through the first round of the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Sept. 18, 2004: Crew 4, MetroStars 2 - Edson Buddle set a club record by scoring all four goals as Columbus crushed the team now known as the Red Bulls en route to the Crew's first Supporters' Shield.

Oct. 26, 2008: Crew 1, United 0 - With the Supporters' Shield already in hand, the final regular-season match was a formality. But sinking D.C.'s playoff hopes with Brad Evans' 40-yard torpedo was sweet for Columbus supporters after years of suffering at United's hands.

Nov. 13, 2008: Crew 2, Fire 1 - The Crew's marvelous 2008 campaign hit its climax in the Eastern Conference championship game. Columbus responded to a Chicago goal by defector Brian McBride with two second-half strikes, including Chad Marshall's towering leap over McBride for the game-tying tally. It's never been more electric in there.
