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.

MLS tried to play soccer on a flooded field and gave up after 4 minutes

(by Mark Sandritter 6-2-16)

It rained a lot on Thursday in the Dallas area. FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo tried to play a soccer game in the same area. The two did not mesh well.

After four minutes of slipping, sliding and trying to play something that resembled underwater soccer, the referee blew the whistle and halted the game due to a rain delay. That was probably a wise decision when the ball itself turns into practically an immovable object.

To their credit, the players tried very hard. But, whatever they were playing did not really resemble soccer.

The rain stopped, allowing the teams a chance to resume play. Or at least attempt to resume play.
