I come home from work today and as usual, one of the first things I do is check my voice mail... Imagine my surprise to find a message from a pleasant young man from the Real Salt Lake front office reminding me that good seats are available for the upcoming July 4th match against the Metros along with the July 23rd match (which is the day before Pioneer Day, a HUGE state holiday in Utah)... Why was I so surprised? Look where I live... <= <= <= Obviously, this is because I went to the USA-Costa Rica match in SLC three weeks ago, but still... This is not the first time this has happened...in fact, every time I've been to a National Team match in an MLS city, I've gotten some sort of mailing urging me to get my playoff/season tickets... I fully expect after my trip to Seattle next week to get something from the Sounders... Why in the you-know-what can't the Fed get this? This shouldn't be that hard. You go to a National Team game, you get on the mailing list for more National Team games. Or is this too much like rocket science? Paging Dr. Bob...please pick up the white courtesy phone...stat!
