I’m here at the office sitting in Commissioner Don Garber’s online chat. First off, for those who are writing their entries for the ticket contest, EMAIL them to me at email@example.com. NO COMMENTS ON THE BLOG accepted for this one.
So Preki is gone from Chivas USA but lands at Toronto FC as its new head coach. Funny story from the Deseret News of Salt Lake about how the NBA’s Jazz, even the European dudes on the team, don’t seem to have a clue about Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup final.
Excerpt from that article here:
So, soccer savants Mehmet Okur and Andrei Kirilenko, who are you picking to win: RSL or L.A.?
“Are they playing?” Okur asked in sincerity.
Hard to believe after how many scenarios had to fall into place for Real to even sneak into the playoffs — not to mention the fact they had to beat the defending champions in the first round and get by a talented Fire team on the road — but, yep, they sure are.
“Really?” Kirilenko asked. “In the final?”
Wouldn’t lie about something like this. Heck, it’s even on ESPN this Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
No offense, local soccer fans, but Utah’s European basketball players — all followers of the other football — apparently skipped over the part of the Sports section that elaborated about RSL’s title tilt with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
“I’ve got to think about more basketball right now,” smiled Okur.
