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.

Rimando is a damn monster

Rimando made some huge saves against Portland to secure the victory. The above photo shows one of those saves after Velasquez had made a horrible back pass and gave the ball back to Portland.

See YouTube link for video highlights of the game and Rimando's saves.

Becks, time to cut the hair. Seriously.


I'm sorry, but Beckerman's hair is so played.
 
It was cool a few years ago but now it just looks like, well, a bird's nest. C'mon Becks, time to cut it, time for a new look.

It reminds me of Roberto Baggio's ponytail around the '94 World Cup and how he cut it off a year or two later and looked so much more classy.

If we choke again this year like we did last I'm placing the blame directly on Beckerman's hideous hair.
