On Sunday, our own Seth Macomber posed a question: who is the New England Revolution's true rival? He examined several worthy candidates without really settling on any one particular answer. There were the usual suspects (D.C., Chicago, New York) and a couple of other choices (Houston, Philadelphia), but again, there was no consensus.

Twitter, however, had some other ideas. As fans read the story and caught the link sent by The Bent Musket's main feed, they started to chime in with their answers.
