Time for some headlines people. Who’s ready for your power rankings?
MLS has the Revs ranked at number thirteen. Shockingly Soccer America has the boys coming in at number twelve. I think that’s the first time they’ve had us higher than another outlet. Well done Soccer America! Sports Illustrated notched the Revs at number nine and highlighted the eight-goal difference Orlando City would have to make up to overtake us. Finally, ESPN gave the boys the number eight slot. They did point out that we’re unlikely to miss out on playoffs no matter what happens on Decision Day. WE GOT THIS!
Charlie Davies has mounted an incredible comeback after a devastating car accident in 2009 that nearly derailed his career. Davies credits Nike, who didn’t drop him as a client, as a key part of his return to form.

TA TA for now.
