RSL Cup blog taking a long much needed break

I've been a fan of Real Salt Lake since it joined MLS and took to the field in 2005, and I've been a fan of MLS since it began in 1996.

However, over the past couple of years, and especially the last several months, I've began to see the ugly underbelly of this sport. Most likely it has always been there and I was just too naïve to see it, but I cannot not see it anymore.

I'm taking a much needed break from the sport of soccer. I may or may not be back. I may or may not update this blog, I don't know. It would be a shame since I've had it up and running for almost 10 years, but the fun I once had just isn't there any more.

Hopefully you fare better.

David Beckham: One more for Man U



(espn.go.com 5-23-11)

David Beckham is headed back to play for Manchester United -- for one night only.

The former England captain will play at Old Trafford in an exhibition Tuesday to honor the career of former teammate Gary Neville.

He says he is thrilled to be pulling on the red shirt he wore for 10 years until 2003.

Beckham says "I get goose bumps every time I think about stepping out at Old Trafford again."

Neville graduated with Beckham from the same United youth team that produced Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and was also best man at the midfielder's 1999 wedding.

Beckham told MLSsoccer.com that "putting a United shirt on again never gets old."

United is hosting Juventus to honor Neville after his retirement this season.
