Boston has already sent their second pro sports team to the Championship game. The New England Revolution won 1-0 Thursday night against the Chicago Fire and will play in their third-consecutive MLS Cup game. With all that success, the Revs still have never won an MLS Cup. Forward Taylor Twellman got them there by scoring the lone goal of the game in the 38th minute on an acrobatic bicycle kick.
The Fire had been on a 10-game (4-0-6) unbeaten streak. The Revs have never lost to the Fire in the playoffs, going 6-0. In fact, they’ve eliminated Chicago the last three years from postseason play. Now, the team awaits either the Kansas City Wizards or the Houston Dynamo, who beat the Revs last season to win it all.
Can the Revolution become the second Boston-area team to win it all in just three weeks time? Probably the fifth-most popular team in the area, the MLS Cup still bears watching.
