The Far Post

14 November 5:03 pm

Today was a monumental day here in the Revoluton offices, as Cathal Conlon accepted the 2013 Far Post Podcast Predictions trophy, in a short ceremony outside of Jeff Lemieux's desk. Cathal then proceeded to take the trophy on a tour around the office in celebration.

(Left to Right) 1. The trophy in all its glory. 2. Cathal accepts the trophy from JWro. 3. A visit to the Revolution trophy case. 4. Rubbing it in Tim Crawford's face. 5. Ummm... 6. Afternoon coffee. 7. Nguyenning. 8. Passersby were frightened. 9. Impeding Jeff Lemieux's productivity for the afternoon.

You want a podcast this week? You got it. Well, kind of. Cathal and I go rogue and give you a short, short version of The Far Post Podcast ahead of tonight's Revolution playoff match in Kansas City.

As we discussed on this week's Far Post Podcast, Revolution analyst Tim Crawford had a fun idea earlier this week (presumably at lunch or between algorithms) - a heat map of Jay Heaps' movements throughout the course of a match. Behold, the "Heaps map:"

We had a few changes to this week's predicitons on the Far Post Podcast, as Cathal and JWro were allowed to pick different scorers in light of Juan Agudelo's injury. Here's where we stand overall:

NAME PTS REVS vs. IMPACT GOAL SCORERS
Cathal 24 W, 2-0 Fagundez, Nguyen
Jeff 19 W, 2-0 Fagundez, Farrell
JDal 18 W, 1-0 Caldwell
LaPan 18 W, 3-1 Fagundez, Davies, Rowe
JWro 17 W, 2-1 Fagundez, Rowe

I think we'd all be happy with any of these results, but for complete selfish reasons I am pulling for Scott Caldwell to strike his first MLS goal and lead the Revs to victory!

Following the Revs' 1-1 draw in Toronto we look back at the game as well as the week that was in MLS. We also look ahead to Sunday's big match-up with the Eastern Conference co-leading Montreal Impact.

On this week's Far Post Podcast, we look back at the Revs' huge win over the Chicago Fire and talk about Juan Agudelo's amazing goal. Is it the goal of the week in MLS? Goal of the year? Best goal in Revolution history? We give our take and much more on the Far Post Podcast.

Things get heated on this week's show, and Cathal is (of course) at the center of it. We also talk Royal baby (ugh), the brilliance of Jay Heaps' lineup against Columbus, and we're back at it with predictions and social media. Presented by Papa Gino's (not that other "Papa" place the Crew uses!)

Speaking of Papa Gino's - here's the Slyde/Slice photo I mentioned:
