Welcome to the RSL Cup blog
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. Lately however I've started to worry about the path MLS is taking and the poor decisions they are making that in my mind threaten the growth of soccer as a whole in the US. (see "Columbus conspiracy" section) Soccer in America will grow only when we have a vibrant and diverse minor league system, something that MLS seems to be smothering at the moment. (see "American soccer wars" section) Let's keep our eyes on the situation and hope for the best, a future where grass-roots soccer and the minor leagues can not only exist but flourish, as well as where the contributions and history of the league's early clubs are appreciated and preserved.

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.

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.
