The Revolution will not be

Well, it seems I’ve fallen quite behind in my updating of this blog, so get ready for a short barrage of posts over the next few days.

So, to kick things off, how about a little soccer? It’s been no secret that the New England Revolution hasn’t been particularly successful the past few seasons. I shot one of their games back in July (I’m behind — I know!), and things did not go well for the home town club.

I hope my pictures can sum it up:
