Girl, you thought you found the answer on that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin' the world still gets you uptight
Well, there's nothin' that you ain't tried, To fill the emptiness inside
But when you come back down girl, still ain't feelin' right.

So here we are again: fresh off a famous mid-week victory over Vancouver, and now free of the last piece of the Scotsman's toxic legacy in Julian de Guzman. Ill timed as it may, with the schedule as busy as it is -- but it is definitely a milestone nevertheless. But is it the turnaround that the club needs, or will the dreams of renewal once again crash to Earth, like so many before? The answer to that story and more,
coming up at 11 we will find out starting tonight in the suburbs of Boston.
The Reds will be in tough in those Bostonian suburbs, though, as a new sheriff has rode into town (come on, it's the Calgary Stampede -- you KNEW this was coming) with the name Jerry Bengtson. The Honduran teamed up with
Tonto Lee Nguyen to surprise the Red Bulls last week, and with a more open schedule (being knocked out of the U.S. Open Cup early has its advantages) they're hungry for more scalps. Can Field Marshal Torsten Frings rally the Toronto Cavalry to defeat Sheriff Jerry and his Foxboro Posse?
For your reading pleasure, James brings you a detailed breakdown of the Revolution in two glorious parts (Part two is here), while you can get the enemy view from my chat with Steve at the Bent Musket. And as always, test your prognostication skills with our world-famous "Are You Smarter?" game.
The CoverItLive window will go live starting at 7:15pm Eastern for pre-game chat, lineup information, and banter, followed by live coverage of the game at 7:30pm -- so wherever you are (work, New England, etc., on your iPhone or your Android device), we invite you to join us: a live commentary is only as good as those who participate!
