On the ground in Salt Lake City

All I can think of is how callers on a certain nationally syndicated sports talk show called this city “Weak Take Lake.”
But it looks nice to me. At least in the dark. Drove past where the NBA Utah Jazz practice because I missed my freeway exit.
OK, here’s today’s Sounders FC story. I have a busy day planned for tomorrow.
Info from today’s All-Star events here in Utah….
-Kasey Keller spent Monday in two different kinds of airplanes. He fulfilled a personal dream by flying in a Blue Angels jet in Seattle, then jetted off to Salt Lake Monday night.
-LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan in remained in Los Angeles Monday and Tuesday in order to rest and get treatment on a strained left calf muscle. He will join the MLS All-Stars on Wednesday and is expected to be able to play against Everton.
-Also today, MLS released the names of all 32 players who are named MLS All-Stars in 2009, in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement. After the 18-man active roster and inactive First XI selections, the remaining All-Stars are named according to the total weighted voting by MLS players, coaches and GMs, media and fans.
