ajsoaresheadshot.jpgHello everybody. Itís been a while since Iíve posted on here, and a lot has gone on since my last update. We have earned our first two shutouts of the year in the last two games, signed Benny Feilhaber, signed Rajko Lekic, and won a couple of games in the process.

First, I wanted to talk about our visit to the Childrenís Hospital in Boston. It was such a great day being able to visit with the children and just hang out. I hope that the kids get something out of our visits, and I really think they do. But, the players seriously get something out of them too. Going into these rooms and talking with children who are genuinely stoked to meet the Revolution players makes my day. Some of the stories that the children and their families tell us about the battles that they go through are super inspiring. So, in a similar way that we inspire the kids to be strong, they inspire us to take advantage of the fortunate situation that we are in as professional athletes.

In early June some of the guys will be going back to visit with the children again. Also, a group of us will be out on June 12 to support the NSTAR Walk for Childrenís Hospital Boston. I am really excited to go out with the team and support such a great cause. I encourage everyone to come and walk to help raise funds for continuing to better the care for the children of Boston and New England.

The former, current, and future kids from the Childrenís Hospital will continue to inspire the Revolution players, myself included of course. I just hope that we can continue to find ways to inspire them. After all, we are just one big team here in New England, and we should keep looking out for each other. See you all on June 12th!
