The Bobby V Cha Cha

I was looking for something upbeat to take everyone into the weekend, but there's not too much optimism surrounding the Boston sports right now.

In the last few days we've had the Sox lose a rough one on Opening Day, the Celtics blow a game so badly that Doc Rivers lost his mind and the Bruins get waxed by the rival Pens. Meanwhile, times are so tough for Wes Welker that he's started pushing adult diapers.

What's the world coming to?

You may ask yourself the same question after you're done with this video.

Unless you've seen it before, which I guess is a possibility, but with only 4K views on Youtube, I'd say this video still under the radar.

It's the 2007 music video for a song called "Diamond" by the Japanese pop group Deen.

It co-stars one of Boston's four pro sports coaches dancing the cha-cha in bright-blue, half-buttoned shirt. Also, it's not Bill Belichick.

Now that you've sat through that mess, take a second, gather your thoughts, and ask yourself one question: Can youuuu cha-cha?

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
