Good morning folks. I will be heading to Salt Lake City today ahead of tonight’s big match between Real Salt Lake and the New York Red Bulls. Tonight’s match marks the opening of Rio Tinto Stadium, and also features two teams in the middle of the playoff chase.
This is my first trip to Utah so, as is customary when SBI is on the road in an unfamiliar city, I want to ask those of you familiar with Salt Lake City and those of you who live there to offer up some suggestions on places to go and things to do in SLC. I have a day to see the town before heading to the new stadium and am looking forward to seeing some Real Salt Lake fans celebrating the historic day.
I will check back in when I arrive in Utah. For now, feel free to feel me in on Salt Lake City, and you can also discuss today’s early news (including the Montreal Impact’s latest Champions League win and UEFA’s interest in implementing a salary cap).
