I fully expect that this will be the least-read article I do this year, so let's just go ahead and get it over with. Oh, and if you have some venting to do, please do it in one of our many other comments sections.
The other RBP tenants were in action in Santa Clara on Thanksgiving Day, and were greeted with something possibly familiar to the players:

Jessica Fishlock has spent a lot of time in planes. Now she learns to fly.
Saturday's Eastern Conference Final was the last game on NBC's broadcasting contract with MLS. I'll be sad to see them go after they lifted the production standards associated with the league by orders of magnitude. Perhaps when FOX's current deal is up in 2022, the Comcast Network will see fit to purchase the single sports contract they don't own by then. In honor of this end of an era, they put together some of their favorite moments on NBC and NBCSN.
In that game, the New England Revolution finished off the New York Red Bulls (though it was not as easy as it may have seemed). Before the match, the team's supporters revealed yet another Field Goal-netting tifo, this one with a GOT twist. Damn, the ECS tifo would have been so sweet...
Suddenly, everyone wants the Revolution. Providence, Rhode Island is actively courting the team out of the Boston area.
Aurelien Collin appears to be on his way out of Sporting KC, and rumors have his destination as Toronto, Ontario, CA. Kansas City may lose another defender if Erik Palmer-Brown is transferred to Juventus.
Toronto is looking for a new club president, and they are looking at Real Salt Lake GM Garth Lagerway. If he accepts the job, he would presumably also become the president of Canada.
Minnesota United has elected to be a force for progression in the Twin-Cities community, supporting a local high school initiative to open up school sports to transgendered students. In doing so, they actively rebuked an ad that appeared in the Star Tribune.
Four names have been leaked in the investigation by FIFA's Ethics Committee. Hopefully they have no way of skewing FIFA's Goal of the Year vote.
Not Even Soccer, Just Because
Surely every woman in a serious relationship who happened to be watching Southern University's halftime show flipped their lid when the band spelled out "Marry Me". School alumni Calvin Mills was able to pull in the favor and got the yes he was looking for, setting the bar high for us non-football star guys. It isn't as effective when your friends from MouseRat play "5000 Candles in the Wind".
