Headed Home

We’re sitting in the lobby as the travel party is beginning to check out since the bus will leave for the airport in about a half hour. It’s actually very windy here today, and we hear that we’ll be flying back into a heavy rain storm. Seems like we don’t have much luck on the whole traveling thing this year.

Just wanted to follow up on Stan Grossfeld from the Boston Globe. Rumor has it his extended piece on the Revs’ trip to Cancun will be in Sunday’s edition of the paper, and will also appear online at boston.com. Be sure to check it out. We’ve been lucky enough to get a sneak peak at some of his images and they’re simply incredible. He’s such a talented photographer, and we were lucky to have him along with us.

Anyway, that’s about it from here in Cancun. We’ll check back in on Monday after the off weekend.

    Good to hear you are on your way back home. Also good to know finally NE is giving our Revs the attention, and respect they deserve. It will be a pleasure to read the article in the Boston Globe and check out the on-line piece as well. Have a safe trip home. :)

    Can’t wait to see the Globe piece too.

    Hope everyone is home safely, or at least safely on their way home. :P

    Looking forward to the piece in the Globe.

    I’m so psyched about this blog and I’m glad the Revs are getting some coverage… it’s about time.

    Thanks for thinking of the Revs, Stan, even though in your “What Were They Thinking” piece you chose not to include them. I mean, C’mon!!! What about Twellman’s spectacular bicycle against Chicago in the playoffs!? It was one of the most exciting moments in New England sports in 07. Sadly it when largely unnoticed.

    Hopefully this will make up for it and maybe even get the globe to notice the Revs a bit more.

    Can’t wait for the 29th to see the Rev boys!

    It’s a nice article, but but somewhat in response to Stan:

    Speaking for myself and as a member of The Midnight Riders, my decision not to take part in the TNT travel offers comes down to money rather than fear of sunburn.

    While it would be nice for me to plunk down a thousand dollars or so for a week-long trip that provides great access to the Revolution, as a supporter, I can do more with that money by investing it in ‘away trips’ to cheer and support the club during the regular and post-season. Last year The Midnight Riders sent delegations to matches in Colorado, Kansas City, New York, Dallas, Washington, DC, and Toronto. Maybe we didn’t get one-on-one access to the players, and maybe we didn’t get to sit next to them on an airplane, but we had a chance to chant, sing, stand, and express our support in what might otherwise be totally unfriendly confines.

    That being said, it was a nice article and a good selection of photos.

    A lot of Revs fans weren’t even AWARE of the TNT travel offer. Take that as you will…

    The Globe article was great! Nice to see some good coverage of the Revs. We’re all looking forward to the home opener. Hope the players don’t freeze after all that hot Mexican weather.
