In 1967 the Boston Red Sox lived the ‘Impossible Dream’, going from last to first in one season. 40 years later, the Sox made a Possible Dream come true; fielding a solid team and winning the World Series. With many New England sports teams looking good this season, can they all make their "Possible Dreams" come true?

New England Revolution Get First Trophy, Looking Towards Championship

The New England Revolution seem to have a Buffalo Bills-eqsue issue with the MLS Championship game. They can certainly make it to the big game, but they never won a trophy.

Until 2007.

The New England Revolution quietly walked away with their first piece of hardware this season. The Lamar Hunt US Open Cup is a tournament held every year that is open to professional soccer teams in the US. The Revolution won this year, getting their first trophy in the team's 12 year history. Many Rev players seem to think that this has released the burden of failure in the finals.

Midfielder Steve Ralston feels that the Cup win will help them in the MLS playoff this year. "We know what it takes. We've won something now; it kind of gets the monkey off the back a little bit."

On Saturday the Revs face off against the New York Red Bulls in the second game of the Eastern Conference Semis. Last week the teams played to a tie in game one of the series.
