OK, I'll admit it. I never expected that Real Salt Lake would be at the top of the Major League Soccer table on July 3.
(That's first place for you non-soccer fans.)
Frankly, I was just hoping they'd make the playoffs. Because that's all you need to do to win the MLS Cup. (Last year, the No. 4 seed in the West beat the No. 5 seed in the East to win the cup.)
Still ... it's great to be in first place. And it would be pretty amazing to win the Western Conference, the Supporters' Shield, the U.S. Open Cup and the MLS Cup - all of which is still possible at this point.
(No, that is NOT a prediction.)
We'll see if the home team can extend their club-record winning streak to eight games when RSL hosts the Philadelphia Union tonight at 8 on Ch. 30. (And that's not a tape-delay - it's a later-than-usual start because there will be fireworks after the game.)
