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?
