no joy in rsl-ville
Anyone who's interested in Real Salt Lake already knows this, but the boys did not prevail over Monterrey - nor even tie them - thus not winning the CONCACAF tournament and also breaking their 37-game home
winning unbeaten streak. We watched the second half of the first half (ha!) and all of the second half, and RSL just couldn't convert any of their opportunities. Monterrey snuck in a goal right at the halftime whistle, not surprisingly since the ball had been down at the RSL end the whole time. The second half was a little bit better, with RSL having some chances. But they just couldn't do it (that Fabian Espindola was totally useless, too busy tossing his hair around to put the ball in the back of the net) and time just ran out on them.
