This weekend was a tough weekend for the New England Revolution, with a controversial red card dooming the Revs to a 3-0 defeat at Sporting Kansas City. The gloom from that loss pales in comparison to the tragedy experienced in the world of soccer, however. I know I can speak for everyone here at The Bent Musket when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with Fabrice Muamba and his family.
