It all started this morning when we got news of the New England Revolution v Orlando City SC game on Saturday because of extreme weather conditions. We sent a tweet from our Total MLS Twitter account announcing the postponement and got this reply back from a Revolution fan.
We found out this fan flew from Denver to Boston, over 2,000 miles, to attend the Revolution home opener that has now been postponed to September. We thought it would be cool if the team got him a ball or something, to show their appreciation, so we sent out this tweet.
Our tweet began getting a lot of interactions but it was Revolution president Brian Bilello's tweet that eventually saved the day.
And this is why we love MLS. Well done Mr. Bilello and the New England Revolution.
