Revolinks - 11/12

Happy "Day After Veteran's Day Sleep Late Day"! As a veteran, you can thank me with money, beer, or both. It's also the Monday of MLS Cup Week and Official Expansion City Announcement Eve. Man, no wonder the banks are closed today. Here's the links:

Boston Globe Revolution played their cards right
Globe and Mail Millson: MLS Cup rematch
The Sun Chronicle Revs at peak for rematch
Climbing The Ladder History of the MLS All Time Table (Plus Current Edition) Ralston One Game from History

Houston Chronicle Ching likely to miss Dynamo's MLS final
WVHooligan Monday Morning Free Kicks: Dynamo and Revs To Battle Again The Monday MLS Breakdown: It All Comes Down to Philosophy Déjà vu in MLS

I'm slowly developing a method to gather the links. In the process, I'm figuring out which blogs I've overlooked in the links section of the sidebar. Baby steps.

Clown of the Day

Today's CLOD goes to the entire footballing institution of the nation of Italy. How many more have to be stabbed, beaten, or killed before you wake up and get control? England received a five year ban from European competition to clean up their deplorable situation. Maybe it's time to do the same to Italy. Can anyone ensure the safety of foreign supporters in that country? Can anyone even sort of promise they will only be assaulted?

The problem is, Italy doesn't have the resources to do what Great Britain did from a security standpoint. It would probably take a modern-day Mussolini to install such an infrastructure in that country at the expense of another segment of Italian society.
