RSL News Stand - Friday, April 1, 2011

No fooling around with today's listing of daily links

With the
Claret-and-Cobalt enjoying an early bye weekend in preparation for Tuesday’s
CCL Semifinal second leg at Saprissa, it’s a fairly light edition of today’s RSL
News Stand. That being said, what we might lack in quantity we’ll make up for
with quality, including a nice feature on Nick Rimando and his
basketball-playing buddy Earl Watson and a look back at RSL’s internationals in
action across the last week, both courtesy of the Deseret News, in addition to some
MLS Week 3 previews.
