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 Beard departs


Real Salt Lake Trades Nat Borchers to Portland for Allocation Money

Borchers Departs RSL Tied For 2nd On The Club’s All-Time Appearance List

(realsaltlake.com 12-8-14)

Real Salt Lake has traded veteran defender Nat Borchers to the Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money.  Per league and club policy, the amount of allocation money exchanged will not be disclosed.

--------------------

My take:

It is sad to lose a player of Borchers' quality, and his contributions to RSL are many, but such is the life of professional soccer.

But the beard, the beard. I won't be sorry to see it go.

I know beards are all the rage now, the same as tattoos were say 5 or 6 years ago.

But seriously, are you concentrating more on your soccer play or your beard appearance?
