Some updates since our conference call with Red Bull Arena security
Update: The bus will be dropping us all off directly at the bar.
We need to all enter at Gate C at 2:30pm. So if you are not coming on the bus with us you need to be at O’Donnell’s by 2pm at the latest to get your tickets/enter with us.
Banners, drums, and flags under 6 feet are allowed.
Streamers, smoke and flares are NOT allowed. Do not bring them. One stupid, selfish action can have devastating long-term effects on our group.
We will wait 15-20 minutes in the stadium after the match to let the crowd thin out, and then we will be escorted back to the bus and will make our return trip just like last year. Security was fantastic to us last year.
Reminder: Banshee will be open at 6am for breakfast for those meeting there.
If you are not at your pickup location at the times listed we will be leaving WITHOUT you. GET THERE EARLY! We like you; it’s just we don’t like you enough to inconvenience 150 people
As always, please let us know if there are any questions or suggestions. You should have already emailed us and told us where you are getting picked up.
Long story short, stick with the herd and we’ll take care of the rest.
See you Saturday!

In response to the ridiculous ruling by MLS which retroactively suspended our beloved captain Shalrie Joseph for a tackle during the FC Dallas game we will be holding up these FREE SHALRIE posters in the 21st minute to show our disgust. You can read all about here, here and here. Click on the image below and print it out and bring it tomorrow. If you can help us out and print a bunch that’d be huge!

I know as a supporter not much beats the excitement and anticipation of a Revolution game day, loading the cooler with various goodies, seeing Gillette rise up on the horizon as I head north on Route 1, and spending the day
with the best supporters in New England. However, there is one thing which I find even more exciting than a home game day. That my friends is having the chance to invade someone else’s house, smack ‘em around a bit and walk out with three points! If you have never had the chance to experience the thrills and excitement of an away game… this is your first chance of 2012.
Did you sign up yet for the Red Bull bus trip?
I look back at my time as a Rebellion supporter and ask myself what brought me and my friends together and helped to forge these lifelong friendships we’ve built? The answer for me can be nothing other than the Revolution’s first visit ever to PPL Park, in the beautiful hell hole known as Chester, PA. I travelled down at 6 am on game day, and returned by dinner time the following day. Was it hectic … yes, was I beat … yes, did I lose my voice … yes, would I do it again … Absolutely. I find that I went to PPL Park with people I shared a common passion with, and returned to New England amongst friends, and loaded with new stories and memories.
