Hello to an Old Friend and some other notes

The Kansas City Wizards announced the singing of an old friend of ours, Jamar Beasley. I remember when the Revolution signed him. They made a big deal about, which was justified. Beasley was considered the next big thing in American soccer. People expected him to be a star and be a key member of the National team. Well, it never ended up working that way. During his time with the Revs Beasley failed to turn into a consistent performer. He had some bright spots during his stay here. I liked him. I wish they had given him more of a chance. Many times he would appear as a sub. On the other hand, I've heard he had a pretty big reputation as a partier which may have been why he didn't always start and the reason for his inconsistent play. At the end of the day, he's a wasted talent. He could have had a much better career than he did. Now that he's back in the league I wish him luck and hope he has a good year. He's always been a talented player.

One thing the Revs are doing this year that I like is their game day previews on their site. You can access today's here. Gives you the weather forecast, the injury reports, and a few other notes usually in 2 - 5 minutes. It's good to watch on game day to get a heads up on what to expect.

No Revolution players at this year's World Cup. It's disappointing since in the past we've gotten to see some our favorites Revs players represent their National Teams. Hopefully this is a one off thing and we've got some Revs in Brazil for 2014.
