The Far Post
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 …
Last Thursday we held our annual promotional photo/video shoots at Gillette Stadium. It was a whirlwind day, as the players visited three different stations set up throughout the stadium to cover all of the photo and video needs for us creative types to work our magic with. Over the coming weeks and months you'll see the products of the shoots on ads, billboards, TV Broadcasts, wallpapers and more. What you won't see in these media are the photos below.
And as you may have seen on Twitter, A.J. Soares had a camera crew from Comcast SportsNet following him throughout the shoots and that video should surface sometime in the near future on Comcast SportsNet.
Enjoy! Photos by David Silverman.
You're in the shot, dude
"A.J. Soares here, tell us what you think of photo day so far."
Uh, can you fix your hair, please? And sit up straight!
"Hey check out my quad!"
The guys made Kelyn laugh. A lot.
"Hey Chris, look what I found out back!"
"Cut it out, D. You'll pay for this if you keep messing with me..."
...true to his word, Kevin made Darrius laugh so hard he ran off after two photos and had to start over
In case you were wondering, the Revs did not sign former Seattle SuperSonics, Oklahoma City Thunder and New York Knicks center Saer Sene. Different guy.
