Jimmer made it happen at Rio Tinto!

Saratoga Springs, UT

Who wants to go in on getting Jimmer some season tickets?
That being said, what a great game. What was built up as the top game of the weekend in MLS turned into a dominating performance by RSL. This is why the team is the star. Without Donovan, the STAR of LA, the team looked very lost. The only good chances they had came from free kicks by Beckham, their other star.
Now look at RSL. We also lose our Designated Player in Saborio, as well as started Will Johnson, and a good bench player in Alvarez. We don't even miss a beat. This is why I love this team.

What a great game! Not only did we dominate one of the top teams in the league, but we also got to see what Paulo Jr. can do in a starting role.

Paulo Jr. has the speed of Findley, but a much better first touch. There is a great article about him on the MLS website, which made me appreciate having him on our team even more.

Time to switch our focus back to the CONCACAF Champions League.

Keep up the good work boys, let's make this a season for the ages with a CCL Championship, Supporters Shield, MLS Cup, Rocky Mountain Cup, and the US Open Cup!

Great work! At least one of our professional sports teams in Utah is doing well right now!

Salt Lake City, UT

Please lie down here on my couch...now I want you to relax your whole body...close your eyes...now relax your mind...let all thoughts and cares melt away...... There, you are now in a deep, restful sleep. When I snap my fingers... you will awaken... refreshed, in a good mood and you will love..... soccer.

I watched the highlights on mlsnet.com and replayed a few times the sequence leading up to the second goal - Paulo Jr. wasn't offside on the play. Paulo Jr. ran past the last defender after the pass from Espindola was sent, but the when the ball was right at the foot of Espindola Paulo Jr. was still even with the last defender in front of Saunders

Real Salt Lake is #1

Great game Real!!!! Jason Kreis, we love you!!!! We are gonna take the cup again this year. What a game for Paulo Junior! That's one heck of a first MSL start! Glad to have Jason Kreis for another couple seasons! Real just killed possibly their only compition in the league. It should be an interesting game in LA with everyone back. Go Real and have a great game in CONCACAF!!!!

Soccer is a great game. My husband, son and daughter were all at the game and it was full of excitement and thrills. And also REAL delivers!!! Also I remember when critics to REAL said that they would never beat LA Galaxy because Beckham is on their team well that's pie in your face..because REAL showed that they have what it takes!!

Provo, UT

Remember a few years ago when articles like this had streams of replies saying that the team will never be successful, MLS will fold, people won't come to games, etc... Soccer is still not the sports juggernaut like Football, Basketball, or even Baseball but there were two professional sports events last night. Attendance for the Utah Jazz: 19649. Attendance for RSL: 20,507.

Where are all the people who said they would be back in three years to say "I told you so" about the team and the stadium. There are still plenty of soccer haters. Fine, but RSL and MLS are a success and here to stay!!!

Beginning to end, it was fabulous.

Riverton, UT

As of right now there are two dates left that will be important to the supporters shield winner, April 13th and October 14th. Colorado is the only team standing in our way at this moment, but it is a long season and there are way too many things to still play out. At the game last night I couldn't help but feel that RSL was almost toying with them. You could tell that this was a statement game for them. And by the way the team we beat on the road last week just beat Dallas 2-0 at Dallas. Go RSL lets keep this going!

Sandy, UT

Kyle Beckerman would beat Jimmer in a game of one on one any day!

Salt Lake City, UT

Jimmer loves RSL!
Who doesn't?

St.George, Utah

Real Salt Lake, the only major league Utah team to produce a national championship. Go Royals!
