It’s been a cold January (even by New England standards), but before you know it, spring will rolling into town – as will the start of the Revolution’s 2013 MLS campaign.
But before the Revs take the pitch for their home opener on March 23rd against Sporting KC, the team must round out its 2013 Rev Girl squad.
Ten local women have made it to the final round of the Rev Girl Boston auditions – held from 9:00-11:00PM this Thursday (1/31) at Game On! Boston – where four will be selected by guest celebrity judges to join returning members on the Revolution’s promotional team.
The Rev Girls serve as the Revolution’s official promotional team, making appearances throughout the year at home games, community and charity events, photo shoots and other promotional events.
Some of the judges helping to select this year’s Rev Girls team include NESN reporter Jenny Dell, Boston’s own boxing champ Danny O’Connor, Boston Globe, Boston Phoenix & Slate.com contributor Luke O’Neil and Revolution defender Kevin Alston.
The auditions will be made up of three competition rounds, including Revolution trivia, a Q&A session about each finalist, and crowd giveaways to judge fan-interaction skills.

Whether you watched it or not, the Pro Bowl took place yesterday in Hawaii. Someone won, someone lost, it’s not really that important. No one really cares about the Pro Bowl because it’s boring, inconsequential and lacking in violence and intensity. While that can certainly be said about the game on the field, it turns out the action in the stands is another story entirely.
Seriously, how does this happen?
Does guy number 1 say, “NFC is the bomb! AFC blows!”
Does guy number 2 come back with, “No way dude, I bleed red, white and the assorted colors of the AFC helmets!”
It doesn’t seem likely, but clearly something set these folks off.

People used to settle their feuds with a couple of pistols at dawn, but nowadays things are much more civilized. If you’ve got beef with someone, just go write about it on Facebook or Twitter. There are two notable slams out there in the sports media world this week, and we want you to tell us which dig is superior.
First, Wes Welker‘s wife, Anna Burns Welker, pulled no punches on Facebook sharing her thoughts on Ray Lewis:
And our second competitor — J.R. Smith of the Knicks taking it to Brooklyn’s Kris Humphries on Twitter:

If you haven’t heard about what’s going on with Manti Te’o, well, what the hell’s wrong with you? Anyway, Deadspin says his girlfriend who supposedly died of cancer never existed. That got us wondering: What else is Te’o lying about? Check out the best responses.
