Revolution vs. Sounders: Desert Diamond Cup 2013 Live Stream and Open Thread

The New England Revolution are kicking off their Desert Diamond Cup campaign against the Seattle Sounders this evening in Tucson. After a rigorous, fitness-based excursion to Casa Grande a few weeks ago, this set of preseason matches will be about the soccer side of things for this squad, while also evaluating the final few roster additions.

The New England Revolution are about to start the preseason games that kinda sorta matter, taking on the Seattle Sounders in Tucson, AZ for their Desert Diamond Cup kickoff. Unlike the two matches played in Casa Grande, these games will focus on getting the team game-ready for First Kick next month.

Kelyn Rowe is going to have sit this match out with a left knee injury. It's going to be the kind of game where we might see 22 or more players appear for the Revs in the same match, because Jay Heaps is looking to evaluate everybody. Also available today should be Marko Jesic, an Australian winger/forward who appeared on the preseason roster recently.

See the lineups below, and then get the discussion going in the comments!
