Vive la Révolution!

The Revolution is coming.

And by that I mean the girls from the Revolution: Tarah (President), Kristin (VP), Regina (I think she was the athletic relations person?), and myself. Later on, we added Melissa as an honorary member, even though her induction into our “athletic supporters” organization (aka soccer groupies club) postdated our far from steadfast support for the Seattle Sounders (when they won the championship we only found out days later) and spotty attendance to their home games.

We bonded over the shame of being some of the oldest Seattle Sounders groupies. Always surrounded by 10-15-year-old girls with tight shorts and belly T-shirts, our revenge came after the game, when we would go see the hot soccer players in the haven that was their over 21 hangout bar.

When soccer season ended, we got together to watch Sex and the City (yes, we ARE aware that the show finished several years ago) and eat junk food. But whatever, girls always find a good excuse to get together and catch up, whether it’s drooling over hot soccer players or drooling over a big tub of mini brownies.

Anyhow, this week, we Revolution girls will be reunited in our first ever out-of-town conference. Kristin and Melissa arrive here tomorrow and will be staying with us until Friday, when they will join Tarah and Regina at the Times Square apartment they rented. Should be fun!
