MLSSoccer.com profiles hometown boy Chris Tierney and his career with the Revolution.
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.
"I want to have my own style...and I like showing it off - that's the fun of it."
Jay Heaps may be arguably the most stylish head coach in MLS, and Benny Feilhaber is right there with him on the player side.
Check out Benny's appearance on WCVB TV's "Chronicle" last night, as we get a look inside Benny's closet to see what the Revolution midfielder likes to wear for any and all occasions.
Revolution forward Blake Brettschneider celebrates his 23rd birthday today.

Blake shares his birthday with such names as Nigel Pulsford of Bush, Dylan Keefe of Marcy Playground, Chris Gaylor of All-American Rejects and singer Joss Stone. Sorry Blake, tried for some "A-listers" but these are the best we could find.
Speaking of A-listers - do you share your birthday with Blake? If so, happy birthday!
What do an isthmus, Californium and aspartame all have in common?
Well, not much, really. Except that they were all correct answers which helped Red Card the F.O. – a motley crew made up of Revolution President Brian Bilello, Director of Marketing Cathal Conlon, Account Executive Kyle Lindsay and myself – finish third in last night’s Midnight Riders Trivia Night held at the Pour House on Boylston Street. As much as I’d love to take credit for our solid showing, I have to admit that Bilello (@RevsPrez) was our MVP. Apparently MIT is a decent school or something. I am proud to declare that I, however, was the one who knew which HBO series debuted in 1998 and became the first cable show to win the Emmy for Best Comedy; Sex and the City. Actually, maybe “proud” is the wrong word.
The night wasn’t without late drama as we actually took a five-point lead into the final question of the evening only to be tripped up by which city saw a baseball stadium demolished in 2000 to make way for a football stadium in 2003. Our guess was Cincinnati. The correct answer was Seattle. Alas, victory slipped away at the death.
We actually finished on the podium with a third-place showing, but passed on our prizes to the fourth-place finisher in exchange for the entire bar joining in on a particular chant about not liking D.C. United very much. You know the one. As you can guess, it wasn’t hard to convince everybody.
Of course there were really only winners on the night as it was announced at the end of the event that approximately $7,000 had been raised for Adam Kopoyan, an incredibly brave young boy currently recovering from a traumatic brain injury. You can read more about Adam’s story and you can continue to donate to the cause HERE.
All in all, a fantastic night put on by the Midnight Riders and all for a good cause. Red Card the F.O. will most definitely see you next year … and we’ll be ready.
