Chris Tierney's Twitter account must have been hacked earlier today.
How else can one explain his extolling the virtue of a new golf toy the day after the Revs suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats in the history of Major League Soccer? (Tierney was an unused sub)
In the grand scheme of things, this is barely a blip on the radar -- Revolution supporters have much bigger issues to be riled up over. That said, Chris Tierney should know better. The entire soccer nation is laughing at you (us), and you hype a rangefinder? Come on, man.
We all remember when he equalized against the Galaxy in the 2014 MLS Cup -- time stood still, and he gave us a reason to believe. Chris Tierney's a good person. He's played his ass off for this team and given us a treasure of unforgettable memories. We're not down on Tierney, we're just disappointed in his poor timing.
Soccer is a business -- our passion is a player's daily grind, and the smart ones remember to maintain perspective. But there's a tone deafness in choosing that tweet today, of all days, as many long-time Revs supporters are canceling or choosing not to renew their season tickets (memberships).
Competitors know better. Players with fire in the belly know better. Leaders who've worn the captain's armband know better.
Change your password, Chris, we think you've been hacked.
