Go NE Revolution!

Yes, soccer is the world's game but it is hardly a blip on the radar around New England when compared to the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtics. Yet the New England Revolution have done something that these other teams have not. I think only the Celtics in late 50's/early 60's were as consistent.

The Revs are just the second team in MLS history to advance to five successive conference championship games (joining the 1998-2002 Los Angeles Galaxy) and the only team from the Eastern Conference to do so.

They play on Sunday against arch rivals, DC United. They are dead even this season with a 1-1-2 record and the same amount of goals for and against each other.

Two years ago, they also met in the finals playing 120 minutes to a 3-3 tie then DC went on to take the penalty kick shoot out 4-3.

This year could indeed be the year for the Revs to go all the way to take home the MLS trophy.

The business lessons from the Revs are just as applicable this year as when I wrote about them last year.

Go Revs!
