While New England fans are rejoicing their first-ever title, San Jose fans are just happy their team is taking shape.
New England held off FC Dallas on Wednesday to win their first-ever trophy. They can start polishing off the dust and cobwebs from the mantle now. New England went up 3-1 midway through the second half but FC Dallas made it interesting when Abe Thompson scored with about a quarter-hour left. Still, New England finished this game in regulation instead of tied as it had their first four cup finals.
San Jose, meanwhile, is at least a year away from competing for a cup technically, realistically they will struggle for several seasons. However, San Jose fans are likely happy that they will have the chance to struggle as opposed to having a chance for nothing, as is the case now. The 'Quakes introduced John Doyle as general manager and former Quake, former Galaxy player Ian Russell modeled the new jerseys.
The logo is almost the same and in fact looks identical until you examine it from close range.
Congrats to long-suffering Revs fans and congrats to long-suffering San Jose fans.
