Some things of interest from the Real Salt Lake side

An article from Michael Lewis of the Salt Lake Tribune that says RSL’s front office is trying to come up with ways to get Seattle fans to pull for their side Sunday.
So, as a reader asked moments ago, who are you with for this one?
Have to share with you that RSL coach Jason Kreis was not thrilled with a question from a reporter this afternoon on a conference call. The question was something about how teams with losing records (RSL was 11-12-7 in regular season) do not have a history of faring well in the postseason in any sport, I think.
“It sounds like we better not go,” Kreis said, unhappy with the tone of the question, I suppose and referring to the team going to Seattle for the MLS Cup final. “I have a lot of belief in this team, not based on results, not based on finishing eighth place…we have every shot in the world and I don’t care what statistics say.”
Also want to encourage everyone to go to the MLS site and see us (the Seattle Times) on the front page. Please participate!
