Salt Lake’s premier soccer team, the Real, lost their Saturday night game against FC Dallas which effectively ended their 10 game streak of being unbeaten. It seemed they had everything going for them as they began the match-up with FS Dallas (even considering that FC Dallas has owned the last seven wins when playing against RSL. After all, goal keeper Nick Rimando has been nearly flawless of late and team spirits were at a high. The question now is whether they can shake this loss, put it behind them and concentrate on what’s coming up. The fans feel certain that the team will get back to their winning ways.
Meanwhile in the Jazz camp, Kevin O’Conner was finally cornered by the media to express his thoughts on the recent roster decisions and the impact he felt that those decisions would have. He expressed confidence in his selections of Raja Bell who he believes is able to shoot the ball well along with playing some good defense. He maintained that he made these changes in a timely manner and not as a result of pressure put on him by the public or by those associated with the team and concluded that he felt that the Jazz are in a much better spot today than they were a week ago. It is possible that more changes will take place in the near future but he gave no hints as to what they might be.
In the world of golf, Tiger Woods is still trying to reclaim his former prowess at the game and continues to have difficulty doing so. Playing Saturday in the British Open, Tiger managed only a 73 which left him 12 behind leader Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa. He insists that his drives are doing just what he wants them to do but that it is the putting that is not getting the job done. He seemed to be in good spirits even though it became obvious that the British Open was going to be another one that “got away”.
