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.
