We want to start playing a weekly game called "Fill in the Blank." It's a simple game that could be a lot of fun. As the name suggests, our writers will be provided with a partially written sentence that they must complete. That's it. The best part? You can play along.
This week's sentence: The best moment from the New England Revolution's series against the Columbus Crew was ____.
Seth: the Chris Tierney goal.
Seeing Revolution players stand over a dead ball isn't something that typically strikes fear into opponents. Tierney helped change perceptions, however, with his stunning blast in the 51st minute of the first leg against the Crew. The local product, who is perpetually underrated, hit an upper 90 beauty that would belong on any player's mix tape.
Hemming: Charlie Davies' diving header
Hometown players mean so much to this club, and have perpetually stamped their mark on the team's success. In the first leg, in the heart of an attack-minded match, Davies showed flashes of his 2009 form, making a daunting late run onto the far post. Without question, his goal set the tone for an eventual 7-3 aggregate drubbing. I love this story: a local player, with tons of history, who fought his way into the Starting XI, finally shines on the biggest stage.
I should probably pick something that had a major influence over the series, or was important in some abstract sense, but come on. Jose Goncalves ran about 100 yards and finished a striker's goal on a counter-attack. How many center-backs in this league are gonna do that? Only these Revs, man.
