The Boston Rams, featuring many local players, will open their season tomorrow at Muscato Stadium in Easton
Submitted to Patch: By Mark Stokes If the founding of the New England Revolution back in the mid-1990's was the first step towards professional soccer in the region, then chapter two of the story surely begins this month in Easton, Mass, when the Real Boston Rams take the stage for what has become one of the most anticipated soccer ventures of recent years. While the Revs have won the hearts of New England fans for the past 17 years, the professional game has, for reasons unknown, remained out of reach for far too many local soccer fans.

But even a game with so much significance on playoff positioning will simply be less important in the wake of Friday's tragedy in Newtown, Conn. The New England Patriots, along with the rest of the country, will have the 26 victims of Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on their minds and in their hearts during Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium.
