Revs Righted?

I gave Jose Bosch grief after he put out a press release extolling a two game winning streak from Arizona United. Two games is not a streak, but an “in a row.” Three? Three is a streak. I don’t want…

Tedski’s Week in Review

I just wanted to gather up all the little things I haven’t written about this week and wrap it into one post. It’s a lazy way to blog, but eh? Welcome to How Flair is Punished’s version of a clip…

I am a Kamara

While FC Tucson was busy making short work of San Nicolas, the Revs front office was furiously cobbling together a deal for Kei Kamara. In the short term, it seems good for the Revs. They gave up no players, although…

And another tie…

In 2014, the Chicago Fire set the MLS record for most ties in a single season with 18. My slide rule says that at the current pace, the New England Revolution is set to beat that number on July 23rd.

Monday Morning Center Back

It was a scant weekend for MLS fans. Me? I was okay with that. Friday United States 0 – Guatemala 2 (Morales 7′, Ruiz 15′) Enough has been written about this. Let me just say one thing: Mix Diskerud at…

Monday Morning Center Back

The most fascinating game I saw this weekend was the Clasíco Nacional, but I gotta list some others. By the way, my rule is that I list the home team second. That’s except when I decide not to. Wednesday Chelsea…

Heaps on preseason results

The Revs are back in Massachusetts enjoying the warm weather. Before they left, I got to ask Jay Heaps about how he approaches preseason matches. Specifically, does he care about the result? Caleb Porter made it obvious that the results…

Friday Night Round Up

I call this “Friday Night Round Up” because that’s better than admitting I’ve been a negligent blogger for a while. I had a rather odd week in my non-soccer world, so give me a break. Anyway, here’s some fun stuff I’ve…

Goat of the Week: Michael Bradley

I am going to get grief for this one from certain American Outlaws, but a mistake Bradley made was more emblematic of his team’s troubles on Sunday than Damien Perquis’s own goal early in the match. Perquis’s error put the…

Monday Morning Center Back

There were matches this weekend. Yep. Friday Arizona Wildcats 1 (Skadsen 89′) – Texas Tech Red Raiders 1 (Crabtree 12′) Hannah Wong only had three shots, but she was everywhere. Saturday Everton FC 3 (Naismith 17′, 22′, 82) – Chelsea…

Monday Morning Center Back

After a hiatus, we return with the weekly feature featuring shallow, I mean succinct, analysis of some of this weekend’s matches. Friday Arizona Wildcats 4 (Haley Silverberg 11′, Paige Crouch 30′, Hannah Stevens 49′, Hayley Estopare 72′) – Northern Arizona…

Jay’s Got Moxie

Heaps_Moxie
Saturday night’s pennant is my favorite I’ve done so far: Jay’s got Moxie! I really wanted to do it for the 8/1 game for his birthday on the 2nd, but the team asked to pair it with the bobblehead tonight, so here it is on my birthday, not Jay’s. (Same year, btw–we are two weeks apart). Anyway this cracks me up every time I look at it; the design worked way too well. It’s wicked pissah!
