RSL's "washout" in Vancouver the story of the day

Real Salt Lake has seen and experienced a lot of unique and/or trying
situations already during the first half of its 2011 season … and the list continued
to grow on Saturday when its match at Vancouver Whitecaps FC was postponed due
to poor conditions on the temporary sod surface at Empire Field. So as we all wait
for the next event to occur (plague of locusts, perhaps?), you might as well go
ahead and plow through this morning’s edition of the RSL News Stand!
