It’s been almost three weeks since the Revs were last on the road, but today the bags are packed once again as the team takes off for the West Coast to prepare for a Saturday night meeting with the San Jose Earthquakes. A brief two-game home-stand to start the month of May was successful in many respects – particularly on the defensive side of the ball – as the Revs registered back-to-back shutouts in a 0-0 draw with the Colorado Rapids and a 1-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps. Now it’s time to continue racking up points away from home.
Typically my travel day blog posts are reserved for after we’ve actually arrived in the city to which we’re traveling, but today I’m taking a bit of a different approach and posting from the bus as we make our way to the airport. We’ll be taking off from Boston later this afternoon, so it’ll be pretty late (especially on the East Coast) by the time we land and get settled in San Jose.
Because we’re landing so late this evening, today will consist of travel, sleep and not much else. There’ll be a team meal once we arrive at the hotel and after that it’ll be time to crash for pretty much the entire travel party.
Tomorrow the boys will run through an afternoon training session at the Nutrilite Training Facility and we’ll have the usual coverage, including both video and written previews ahead of Saturday night’s match. Training won’t begin until 2:30 p.m. PT, so look for that coverage late Friday evening (or at the very least early Saturday morning if you’re one who likes to get to sleep early).
In the meantime, enjoy the end of the work week and we certainly hope the weather clears up for you a bit in the Northeast.
