Hello, you fine folks reading RSL Soapbox today. We have a treat for you: soccer. Yay. It’s about time, really.
- What: Real Salt Lake vs. Portland Timbers
- When: 5 p.m. Mountain, 4 p.m. Pacific
- Why: Because you’ve gotta love it, baby
- Live Stream: Timbers.com, KSL TV app, (presumably) KSLSports.com, maybe RSL.com, too
- Afterward, look for: Photos from our very own Lucas Muller
- Could we see Sam Johnson again? He’s been used sparingly to this point, and it would be nice to see our new signing get some minutes.
- I don’t think we’ll see Albert Rusnak, though — at last recollection, he was away in Europe doing green card work. That’s something we should be excited about, even if it means we don’t see him play.
- Will we start to see a lineup come together that looks fitting for an MLS game? After all, we’re, what, a week away from our first match? (Oh boy. I’m not ready.)
