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!

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.
