Real Salt Lake wins

In this area, we only have two pro teams, the Utah Jazz (NBA) and Real Salt Lake (soccer). The soccer team was pretty mediocre all season long and it looked pretty certain that they wouldn't make the playoffs. Then they started winning. And winning.

They made the playoffs and won every game, including a huge upset in the cup game against the LA Galaxy, who stars the famous David Beckham.

The team gets a fair amount of support, but they have only been in existence for five years and just now got their own stadium. This win should be great for fan support, ticket sales and such. I was surprised to hear that Utah has the most kids playing soccer per capita. Now they have more to cheer for.
