We have three live chats coming up over the next seven days, here are the details:
Friday, March 30, 1 P.M. ET: Chat live with Lee Nguyen at 1 PM ET live from Los Angeles, ahead of Saturday's match with the LA Galaxy.
Saturday, March 31, 11 P.M. ET: Kyle McCarthy will join us along with LA beat writer Luis Bueno for an in-game live chat. Stay up late, head to revolutionsoccer.net and join us!
Tuesday, April 3, 7:30 PM E.T. : This one is special. You may remember a few weeks ago we had a VIDEO fan chat with Jeff Lemieux. Well, we are ramping it up this time and will have none other than Matt Reis joining us for a live video chat with YOU. Get those web cams ready, as you'll have a shot at chatting one-on-one (think Skype) with Matt Reis while the team is in Frisco, Texas ahead of next Thursday's match with FC Dallas. This was a lot of fun for the short one we did with Jeff a few weeks back (video snippet below), so you definitely do not want to miss this.

Revolution all-time great Taylor Twellman is the only player in the history of the team to do a lot of things - win the MLS Most Valuable Player (2005), MLS Golden Boot (2005), MLS All-Star Game MVP (2005), score 101 career goals, etc. etc.
And as the above tweet stats, Taylor is also the only player in Revolution history to be born on leap day.
For Taylor's previous official birthday in 2008, we made this little video tribute to Taylor for his then-7th birthday and now seems like a good time to re-visit this.
Happy 8th birthday, Taylor!
