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.

In conjunction with the youth teams’ away games against BW Gottschee, parents of U14 player Raffi Barsamian, Nancy and Anthony, coordinated an emergency supply drop at a shelter in Gerritsen Beach.
 
Youth players and front office members combined to transport and donate three car loads of supplies on behalf of the Revolution, including flashlights, batteries, non-perishable food items and first aid kits.
 
“Without a lot of fanfare, we wanted to make sure we gathered as many supplies as we could to bring down to one of the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy,” explained Director of Youth Development Bryan Scales.
 
“When we got the word out to our Academy families and the Revs front office staff, the response was overwhelming … Being positive role models and being active in the community is something that is very important in the development our young players. We just felt it was important to step up and help in any way that we could.”
 
Players and staff alike returned with stories of the devastation seen in Brooklyn. But it is efforts like these that continue to bring hope to those affected by the storm.

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.

Notes:

  • The goal was Diskerud's first in his Men's National Team career.
  • It was Diskerud's third appearance for the USA

Notes:

  • 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

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?
