Sunday night our beloved RSL faced the evil Landon Donovan, David Beckham’s shark-jumping hair and the rest of the LA Galaxy. We watched. We prayed. Our hearts pounded as if we had swallowed a fistful of ephedra. After 120 minutes and seven rounds of penalty kicks, our boys triumphed. And, while they were the underdogs on paper, they were the best squad on the pitch that night. Beckerman controlled the flow of the match. Rimando was a typical beast in the pipes. And Robbie Findlay just kept attacking until a small crack appeared for the equalizer.
So, with the Anschutz Trophy resting safely at the foot of the Rockies, now’s as good a time as any to show off a couple print ads we delivered earlier this year for XanGo (RSL’s jersey-front sponsor) and RSL. At the beginning of the season, these executions might have felt aggressive… Now, they just feel right.
Big congrats (again) to all our friends at RSL! Let’s do it again next year!
