As many know, today marks the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Some of you may know that former New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis played a pivotal role in the aftermath of the attack, as his father-in-law was seriously-wounded watching his daughter, Reis’ wife, run the race.
MLSSoccer.com’s cool MLS Insider” series has a 8 1/2 minute video piece on Reis’ heroics on that that awful day. It’s a touching video that has some incredibly emotive moments between the lines, including the knowledge that Reis and his 7-year-old son were forced to move from a site very near to the blast in order to get a better view of the runners.
