    Injury trips up Franchino's travel plans

    "Captain Joe Franchino's quadriceps injury will force him to miss his third straight playoff game Friday night when the Revolution take on Chicago in a single-elimination Eastern Conference final at Soldier Field..."

    Hell, tell Joey he's welcome to join Rev fans at The OverDraught on Friday night then ;-).

    ... and last but not least, a little tidbit burried in Grant Wahl's recent column for CNNSI:

    "All that said, (Bruce) Arena couldn't help but be impressed by what happened Sunday night. And the fact is, he has been able to identify some new national team prospects: "I would say [New England's] Pat Noonan, from what I've seen the last month or two. Brian Mullan is an interesting player..."

    Lots of good stuff today, probably missed a few things.

    Ron Indisrano's article

    Did anyone read or get the hard copy of this article in the globe?
    The picture it included was of Joe-Max Moore not Jason Moore.
    It never ends.

    I think the Revs have an excellent chance at the MLS Cup and I am more than happy to see them in the play-offs. Every time I see how they're doing, I think to myself "Is this the same team that was in the middle of the table earlier this year?" A very good run, this.

    Joey was signing autographs at the game on Sunday. I asked him whether he was going to play in the Chicago game. I got an abrupt no. I was expecting either a yes or a maybe, since the game was almost a week away, but was surprised with the certainty of the answer. Good thing Leonard is playing so well. Funny thing is, at the beginning of the season, we were joking about DH, Joey, and JMM fighting over the free kicks. Now, we don't really have a direct scoring threat on medium range shots.

    I don't doubt that. But, after reading Nicol's quotes downplaying the significance of Joey's injury, I was surprised to find out that he was already declared out of the next game.

    You can bet that the Fire are going to try to pick on the Revs wing backs (Marshall and Heaps) as a result of this.

    Kam and Ralston will probably be spending a lot of effort helping back there - at least in the beginning.

    Don't forget about Cancela. He's taken some excellent free kicks this year even if he hasn't scored on one yet. But yeah, it would be nice to have Joey out there to give us a left-footed option.
