Took my parents to Gillette Stadium this weekend.
How nice of the New England Revolution Soccer team to share their stadium with the far less popular New England Patriot Football team.
We watched the Revs play the NY Red Bulls. I would classify them both as 'pub team' standard.
That said, it was fun to sit in the stands, on a summer evening.
The Revs keeper went for a 50-50 challenge outside the area. And broke his tibia and fibula. There's nothing as gross as seeing a limb point in the opposite direction. Ugh. Big time ugh.
Frankly the rest of evening was secondary. I was vaguely amused by a bunch of Frenchmen behind me, also questioning the standard of the play.
I'll delay comment on those guys until we see how far Les Bleus get in the upcoming World Cup ...
