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.

The Salt Lake Reals

When RSL was introduced to the Utah sports scene a lot of people unfamiliar with soccer could not understand the concept of a sports team not having a name like "the Jazz" or "the Bees". When the name Real Salt Lake was unveiled I remember watching our local newscasts and they all refered to the team as "the Reals". It took actually a couple of years for everyone to get on board and understand the concept. But for quite awhile local soccer fans were worried this team would forever be known as the Reals
