Social Media Roundup: April 3, 2020 | Farrell, Zahibo test their piano skills

Social Media Roundup 2020

It’s week three of social distancing for the New England Revolution players, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be seen.

In fact, many players have been active on social media, interacting with both fans and their teammates to stay in touch during this unprecedented time. 

Let’s check in with a few players and see what they’ve been up to while isolating.

Andrew Farrell hasn’t been able to sit still. He can be seen on his new Instagram handle @quarantinefarrell2020 playing sweet melodies on the piano keys, sharing them for all Revs fans to hear.

Farrell isn’t the only one getting to work tickling the ivories. Wilfried Zahibo purchased a keyboard while at home, and told Farrell to give him 30 days, and we’ll see how close he catches up to the longstanding piano player’s talents.

Zahibo and his teammates have been hard at work staying in shape during social distancing. They are #TogetherWhileApart in their workout regime in order to be ready to go when the MLS season resumes.

The Revs may not be able to go to Gillette Stadium to tailgate, but Kelyn Rowe couldn’t bear to see the party stop.

When the Revs took on Real Salt Lake, his former team, in an EA SPORTS FIFA 20 simulation, Rowe invented e-tailgating to get New England fans pumped for the eSports match.

Not to mention, it was obviously his first time tailgating for a Revs game, and he even brought Matt Turner on to join. 

This trend continued when the 2014 Eastern Conference Championship games were streamed on Turns out, you can’t stop a good tailgate. 

Ten-year Revolution veteran Diego Fagundez was the first guest on the Far Post Podcast social distancing show. Fagundez has been working out in his basement, spending time with his family, and at one point broke out a ‘Panther’ mask while on the show.

Honestly, the best way to understand is to check it out for yourself …

Some of the younger players have been interacting with fans on Instagram. Both rookie Henry Kessler and second-year winger Tajon Buchanan did an interactive “Ask Me Anything” session, where they answered the burning questions the supporters wanted to know. 

It ain’t no lie, Brandon Bye is counting the days until the group returns to play at Gillette Stadium.

Perhaps the greatest effort to watch, though, is Farrell’s pair of Fortnite tournaments to raise money for COVID-19 relief. Revolution teammates who participated in the tournaments include Turner, Fagundez, Bye, and Justin Rennicks. Farrell's efforts raised a total of $3,000 to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus.

The team also sent thanks to the incredible medical professionals who are fighting on the frontlines of COVID-19 in a special video for #NationalDoctorsDay. Head coach Bruce Arena paid his respects as well.
