Alejandro Bedoya tweeted the above image today when he came across a story on the Son of Ben in the UK edition of GQ.
I have no idea what prompted a British mag to feature an American supporters group, but its clear that the SoB legend has broken free of US shores. Headed into their second season, the group has become a model for soccer fans in other cities desperate to bring MLS to their hometowns through expansion..
Unfortunately the story isn't available online, but Keith Hickey did manage to find a site with other photos taken for the story.
How fitting that the title photo is Union fans giving the one-finger salute.
