The Revolution held its second-annual media game on Wednesday, May 22 on the Gillette Stadium field. Members of the local media participated in several small-sided matches against each other, with Revolution players serving as coaches, and Revolution coaches serving as referees. As you can imagine, head coach, er, referee Jay Heaps was pretty heavy-handed with the cards. Rumor has it Jeff Lemieux was red carded for missing an open net!
All in all it was a great time for everyone. Here are some photos from the event, with video to follow soon.
