During a busy weekend that consisted of two matches, and travel from Florida to North Carolina and from North Carolina to Columbus, several Crew players took to Twitter to honor their fallen teammate around the inaugural Kirk Urso Memorial Match. Even players who didn't get the chance to play alongside Urso like Dominic Oduro and Drew Beckie showed their respect.
Here are some of the highlights, 140 characters at a time:

Urso was my roommate in residency, a hard worker, great player, and even better person. Looking forward to playing in his memory #crew96— Ryan Finley (@Ryan_Finley9) February 24, 2013

I know I gave up twitter for lent but I think The Lord allows a tweet for Kirk Urso, although I didn't know him, it's an honor to be here— Drew Beckie (@DrewBeckie) February 24, 2013
