That Championship Season

I'd like to offer a congratulations to Real Salt Lake on winning the MSL championship cup, and bringing the state of Utah it's first professional sports title!

[sound of a record scratching]

Wrong! Though Real Salt Lake's victory was thrilling and extremely satisfying to this non-soccer fan, let us not forget the 1970-1971 Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association. A championship team led by ABA all-time points leader and current Utah Jazz color commentator Ron "The Ironman" Boone.
