The Far Post
As promised, we're back! Lots to talk about today with the arrival of Juan Toja, this weekend's matchup with D.C. United, and more. Give a listen!
With three games in eight days, things have been pretty hectic here in Revs Digital land, hence no Far Post Podcast. But never fear - we'll be hitting the studio on Monday to recap the Revs' three-game homestand and more. We've been keeping up with our predictions and with a few own goals and controversial calls over these last three matches, you can bet that segment will go nice and smooth with no name-calling or yelling whatsoever.
I'll leave this for you all to discuss over the weekend, as this play had a big effect on my own prediction (I said 3-0 Revs) as well as Cathal's (who has had "Big Creepy Steve" scoring since, oh, May): was Stephen McCarthy on or off?
Well, it's been a long, strange trip - but somehow we made it to number 50. Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out this week's historial episode as D.A. calls in with an epic soccer rant and more. And of course, we discuss Philly, controversial calls, retroactive suspensions and look ahead to Sporting KC this Saturday.
We have good news and bad news: Good news - We have a podcast this week. Bad news - Our 50th episode of "The Far Post Podcast" will have to wait one more week, as Cathal had a prior commitment.
So, we called up Revs' beat writer Kyle McCarthy, who is currently in Philly for tonight's All-Star game festivites and talked soccer for 25 minutes.
Due to multiple scheduling conflicts, we recorded this week's Far Post Podcast this afternoon. Despite some "slacking" allegations by some people on Facebook (you know who you are), we hope what today's episode lacked in timeliness was made up for in quality.
Oh, and this is what came on the TV screens in the studio towards the end of the show:
Revs fans - May the fourth be with you all!
With the Revs off this weekend, we were contemplating after the podcast on Wednesday where or how some of the guys might spend their weekend. So being the characters that we are, the first idea that came to mind was "Weekend at Bernie's." Don't ask why, it just did.
Have your own far-fetched ideas as to where some of the Revs would spend their weekend? We've seen some pretty nice Photoshop work amongst our fans, so if you're reading this and want to contribute, tweet your 'shops at us (@NERevolution) and we'll post them here on Monday.
Have a good weekend, everyone! And if you want to keep up with all the other MLS action over the weekend, here's where you can watch.
Because of space constraints at Kino Sports Complex, we’ve been shooting our postgame videos just steps outside the Revolution’s locker room. This is what happens when players walking from the locker room to the bus spot a teammate being interviewed on camera …
