I watched the “Power of the Dog” on Netflix Sunday evening. I still don’t have a sense if I liked it or not. Sometimes things like this grow on us after the fact. Network TV is rarely on here. Streaming channels are the norm. However, one of the network shows I never miss is the “Grammy’s”. Channel surfing after the movie I stumbled on the Super Bowl halftime show. I have seen quite of few of these extravaganzas, and except for Prince , they all pale to this years show. It’s not every day that I can’t stop myself from dancing in front of the TV. Sunday was one of those days. I loved everything about it. Everything.
The Revolution are moving on in the Concacaf Champions League, and they didn’t even have to hit the pitch.
New England’s opponent, AS Cavaly, wasn’t able to solve its visa issues and had to withdraw from the tournament. The first leg was supposed to take place Tuesday night at Gillette Stadium, but was postponed to Friday.
Now the Revolution don’t have to worry about the Round of 16 anymore, as AS Cavaly announced it had withdrawn from the tournament Tuesday night.
“AS Cavaly (HAI) has notified Concacaf that the club has been unable to obtain the necessary visas required to travel to the United States for their upcoming SCCL matches against the New England Revolution (USA), and that they have made the decision to formally withdraw from the competition,” Concacaf said in a statement.
The Revolution now advance to the quarterfinals, where the club will face the winner of the Pumas UNAM (Mexico) vs Deportivo Saprissa (Costa Rica) Round of 16 matchup.
