Hold this picture in your memory for a bit.

Sunday, the LA Galaxy arrive at Gillette Stadium with David Beckham and the stadium will be considerably more populated than it was on Wednesday night. The NE Revolution played the Harrisburg City Islanders (a USL Division 2 club) in the fourth round of the US Open Cup and won 2-1.

Harrisburg played well, surprising the Revs with a goal in the 78th minute to make the closing of the game exciting.

While about 2,000 appeared to see this good soccer game Wednesday, a "sell out" crowd of 32,000 is expected for Sunday's game. It looks like David Beckham may play... here's to hoping we get to see a classic bending ball.
