No, these guys are not contestants in a Tom Selleck look-a-like contest, they are the Revolution front office participants in Movember, to raise awareness for men's cancer research. There are still four days left in this great month of facial hair growth, and the guys could use some more donations.

When the youth schedule was first released earlier this year, the young Revs had no idea that their trip to Brooklyn, N.Y., would be just weeks after a devastating storm. Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc along the east coast at the end of October, with New York and New Jersey especially suffering significant damage.
I could write a witty little blurb about today's podcast in this space, but I think I'll just let the audio speak for itself today. Have a good weekend and Thanksgiving Holiday, everyone!
This morning's U.S. MNT friendly against Russia had quite the finish, as Mix Diskerud scored the equalizer for the U.S. deep into stoppage time, earning the U.S. a 2-2 draw. Michael Bradley scored the other U.S. goal with a spectacular volley from just outside the box in the 76th minute. Check out the goals and a few notes on today's match below.
- The goal was Diskerud's first in his Men's National Team career.
- It was Diskerud's third appearance for the USA
- This was Bradley's second goal of 2012. His first (a volley against Scotland) was equally spectacular
- It was Bradley's 11th-career goal for the U.S. MNT
- Juan Agudelo had the assist, his third for the U.S. Men's National Team

We deviate from the norm on this week's show - by getting down and dirty with lots of stats and analysis. Revs team analyst Tim Crawford joins us and breaks down what he actually does for the team and more.
I have mixed feelings about the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs.
In one respect it’s an exciting time to be an MLS fan. The games are coming fast and furious and they all have that unmistakable “playoff” feel as we begin to dwindle down the title contenders. Entire seasons hinge on every play and the tension is palpable, even from the comfort of my own couch.
But on the other hand, I wish I wasn’t watching the postseason from my couch. Let’s face it, the pain of watching the MLS Cup Playoffs when the Revs aren’t involved can be excruciating, particularly when some of our closest rivals are taking part. I’m pretty sure I dry heaved during starting lineups for the New York Red Bulls – D.C. United game this past weekend. I’m probably not alone there, either.
This conundrum leads to an interesting question for those who strike some sort of balance between being a Revolution fan and being an MLS fan: Do you watch the MLS Cup Playoffs when the Revs aren’t involved?
If you do watch, do you actually cheer for a specific team? A specific player? Or do you just watch to see what happens?
Personally, I find myself pulling for specific players more than anything else. I’m too closely tied to the Revs to ever feel emotionally attached to another team, but I do care about the success of former Revolution players whom I crossed paths with in Foxborough. Which is why I cheered for Brad Knighton in the Western Conference Knockout Round and pull for Seth Sinovic in the Eastern Conference Semis. Then of course there’s Steve Ralston, who serves as an assistant coach in Houston. They’re good guys and if the Revs can’t win, I’d be OK if they did.
What about you? Are you cheering for any player or team in particular? Or are you pretending the playoffs didn’t even happen this year?
It's Halloween, and things got weird. Just another day on the Far Post Podcast!
