"Did she go to China for that tea?" -Mad Men
There's nothing worse than being stuck in an awkward situation. A conversation takes an odd turn and suddenly you're looking around for someone, anyone, to get you out of there. Often in TV and movies, the awkward situation will result in a chugging ones drink, like maybe at the bottom of the glass there's a portal to another better world. One where you're not surrounded by Real Salt Lake fans after their club just scored the go ahead goal after the eightieth minute.
Drink up, buddy. And let me know if it got any better.
Interesting note about the first two RSL goals, both benefited from the use of the advantage rule. The PRO websiteuses the two goals to illustrate how the advantage rule works, and has nine bullets points of criteria a referee has to use while deciding to play the advantage.
You can see the referees hands raised in the air here at midfield, signaling play on despite some bumping between midfielders. No one went down, the ball remained possessed by Real Salt Lake, and there was a successful pass up the pitch so the referee allowed play to continue.
By the time RSL has gotten set up on the wing, this is how the defense was set up. Two defending in the box, two players watching the crosser, one watching the back side of the play, and two more running in. Note that eventual goal scorer Khari Stephenson is running over to receive the ball and has a man marker. Defenders will attempt an interception at both ends of the assist but will both be unsuccessful.
You can see that as the ball comes in the two defenders man marking in the box, and their mark, make a wall in front of Brian Rowe. The ball is shot through the wall, specifically through Javier Morales in the middle of it. The ball is going to be shot through Morales, and the first good look Rowe will have at it is as the ball flies between Morales' legs. Not a whole lot of time to react to the daisy clipper, but he still almost got there.
