New England Revolution
As you know, Gillette Stadium is currently in the process of having the FieldTurf replaced with the most Revolutionary FieldTurf. When the Revolution take the field against Houston on April 12, not only will there be brand new FieldTurf, but there will also be box goals. We got a sneak peek at the footings being drilled yesterday on Twitter:

With these box goals, there are three support poles in the back of each one (six total). They're just plain old metal poles, nothing too exciting. So, we want to jazz them up a bit. This is where YOU come in. How should we decorate them? Paint them all one color? Many colors? Should they say something?
Get creative and give us your thoughts in the comments below.
Revolution General Manager Michael Burns checked in with WEEI's Ben Kichen on Wednesday's SoccerCast show. Give a listen below.
Starting this year, we're giving the Revolution players their choice of songs to be played during warmups. Andrew Farrell will kick things off on Saturday with the following six songs:
Do you and Andrew share the same taste in music? Let us know in the comments.
Luis Soffner spent his recent off day a little differently than the rest of his New England Revolution teammates.
Soffner hopped on a flight to Washington, D.C., on Monday morning to meet up with other members of the 2012 national champion Indiana University men's soccer team. The Hoosiers, along with 18 other NCAA Division I National Championship teams from 2012-2013, were honored by President Barack Obama as part of a ceremony at the White House.
After a tour of the White House, Soffner had the chance to introduce himself to President Obama and shake his hand before taking an official White House photo.
Photos and video from the ceremony are available HERE on Indiana University's official athletics website.
The Revolution home opener is just 12 days away! Just as we've done in previous years, we’re taking it to you to choose the 2014 Revolution goal song.
We have a few songs in mind, along with the 2013 goal song (“The Boys Are Back”) and will be launching a poll with 8-10 songs to let fans vote beginning this Wednesday, March 12.
Before we get the poll going, we'd like to allow a few days to suggest songs you'd like to hear as the 2014 goal song.
Post your suggestions in the comments, and if possible, post a link (youtube, spotify, etc.) so everyone can listen.

The guys on the Far Post Podcast love the constant support and encouragement we hear from our diehard listeners (even if there are only 50 of you). Those relationships are why we enjoy the show as much as we do. So when those who listen to us make suggestions, we listen back.
That’s precisely how the Far Post Fantasy League was born. A loyal listener (thanks, Ben Lofthouse!) suggested we set up a fantasy league for fans of the podcast and it seemed like a pretty brilliant idea.

You can join the league HERE. It’s free, open to everybody and incredibly simple to set up a team. Each week on the Far Post Podcast as part of our “Around the League” segment, we’ll highlight the top teams from that week and keep tabs on who leads in the overall standings.
If that’s not enough incentive, we’ll also have some pretty sweet Revolution-related prizes for the top overall winners at the end of the season. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!

Today is Revolution rookie forward Patrick Mullins' birthday. Goalkeeper Brad Knighton said happy birthday in his own special way. And as a side note, Brad Knighton will need to have his head on a swivel, as his birthday is tomorrow (February 6).
