New England Starts Road to Quadruple

Last night the New England Revolution captured the Superliga 2008 title with a win in penalty kicks after drawing 2-2 with Houston. This was the third time in three years the two clubs have met in a Cup final (the previous two time were the MLS cup final--which Houston have won twice).

Here is the basic problem--hardly anyone saw what was a good game. With the only TV contract being Spanish Language Telefutura, there were no English language TV rights so a vast majority of fans couldn't see the game.

With this win, New England has capture the first leg of a potential quadruple. New England have to be favorites to win the U.S. Open Cup again, are strong candidates to win the Supporter's Sheild for the best overall record in the MLS and also the MLS Cup.

Right now the Revs are winning games by just about any means and are playing what I think is the best soccer in North America. Today, the Revs could compete in any league in North and Central America.
