What is there to say? The win over Vancouver was the first time where the New England Revolution utterly overwhelmed and dismantled an opponent. More so than even the LA Galaxy game, the Revolution dominated the game - outside of the first 10 or so minutes. And reading through twitter, it is easy to see that the supporters had been waiting, salivating, wanting this to happen.

"The Match in Tweet" let's us take a strange ride that we have not seen all year. This is not the early goal hold on by your teeth "Match in Tweets" (the Portland Timber game), or the just waiting out an inevitable comeback even though it never comes "Match in Tweets" (Los Angeles game), this is the sunshine, flowers, rainbows and puppy dogs "Match in Tweets" And hopefully, there are a few more of these coming our way this season.

If you are tweeting solid Revolution gold during game days and haven't made "The Match in Tweets" yet, then make sure you hashtag your Revolution game-day, post-game, and day-after-game tweets with #Revs, or follow @MindOfAbram on Twitter, so that you too can be included in "The Match in Tweets.
