Utah likes us! RSL up for four awards in 2014 State of Sport awards

Steve Dykes

It's just like the headline says.

And of course, by us, we mean Real Salt Lake as a whole. We hope they like RSL Soapbox, but unfortunately, this blog is not in the running once again for some awards from Utah governor Gary Herbert. RSL, though?

We're up for four awards for 2013: Team, Game or Event, Male Athlete, and Highlight of the Year.

Our MLS Cup final against Sporting Kansas City is there for Game of the Year; Kyle Beckerman is nominated for Male Athlete of the Year; and a Nick Rimando double save is up for Highlight of the Year - the same double save that was named 2013 Save of the Year, where Rimando clawed the ball off the line from the ground rather spectacularly.

The 2013 awards (for judging in the 2012 year) saw Nick Rimando win the Highlight of the Year and Professional Male Athlete of the Year.

So yeah, it's safe to say that Utah likes us. Or maybe they love us. Something like that.

What are you waiting for? Go vote. We'll win this.
