St. Louis closer to getting a team

St. Louis is not getting Real Salt Lake, but their efforts to land the club might have moved them a bit closer to finally having a club of their own.

Real owner Dave Checketts had nothing but good things to say about their efforts.

"I spoke with (MLS) Commissioner (Don) Garber today,'' Checketts said, "and told him that I spent the last couple of weeks exploring sites and talking to Jeff Cooper, and I said, 'Don, we've got to get a team there. It's absolutely ready for it.' Even though this didn't happen, we've got to find a way to get a club there. My view is it is really ready to embrace a team. There's more passion for soccer there than any place I've been."

St. Louis needs a team like few other cities in America and MLS would be wise to give it to them.

If passion is a motivator then the next 4 cities should be: San Jose, St. Louis, Portland and Philadelphia

That would be a great lineup.
