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.

The second and final RevGirl auditions took place on Thursday night at RiRa in Providence, with three lucky winners being selected out of a total of 10 contestants. Comedian Bill Simas hosted the night's events, as Revolution supporters watched guest judges Kelsey Fournier (Miss Rhode Island 2012), Will Gilbert (WPRI Rhode Show), Jessica Schiano (92 PRO-FM) and Jenna Pelletier (Providence Journal) carefully chose the night's three winners.
Your 2013 winners are Christina Attaway, Rachel Sibley and Sara Leonard.
Great time at RiRa Providence on Thursday evening as both the final stop of the Revolution Pub Tour and the Rhode Island leg of the RevGirl finals took place. Kalifa Cisse, Ryan Guy, Saer Sene, Dimitry Imbongo and Clyde Simms and were all on hand to chat with fans, take pictures and sign autographs.

Greetings from Casa Grande! From what I hear, it's pretty cold back home, so hopefully these photos will help to defrost your bones for a little while.
As you probably know by now, Matt Reis and Darrius Barnes both went home with stitches after Saturday's 0-0 draw against Sporting KC. Barnes had six stitches after colliding heads with Sporting KC's Kei Kamara, and Reis had double that amount after catching an elbow to the head, also from Kei Kamara, in what was possibly the longest stoppage-time period I've ever experienced in regular-season play.
Just how bad was Matt's injury? Here's a few photos of Matt's experience, with a VERY detailed photo of the gash above his right eye before his stitches were administered. If you have a weak stomach or can't stand the sight of blood, you will want to pass on this one. But since we had these, we figured we'd share.
