New England Revolution Caught in Texas Tornado

You think a Texas twister is going to stop the New England Revolution's win streak? Not a chance. The Revolution had to run for cover when a tornado touched down in North Texas. The team's hotel sits in the path of the cell, and hotel guests were sent to the basement for their own safety.


  1. Being in Texas was all well and good for a couple of Revs players who grew up in North Texas.
  2. But on Tuesday afternoon, the Revs got word that a twister might be headed their way. Early reports said the storms were causing serious damage in the area.
  3. The Revs hit the hotel basement for 30 minutes. How did they pass the time? See below.
  4. Putting the team in the basement was just a precautionary measure. But it had to be scary for any non-Texans involved. New England's communications czar Lizz Summers gave the definitive play-by-play account.
