Scene: Calvin and Hobbes are reading the newspaper.

Calvin: "I like following the news! News organizations know I won't sit still for any serious discussion of complex and boring issues. They give me what I want: Antics. Emotional confrontation. Sound bites. Scandal. Sob stories and popularity polls all packaged as a soap opera and horse race! It's very entertaining."

Hobbes: "Then commentators wonder why the public is cynical about politics."

Calvin: "You can tell this is an in-depth story because it's got an article next to a chart."

--Calvin & Hobbes by cartoonist Bill Watterson, 2005

July 7, 2005 | SALT LAKE CITY -- Jason Kreis' goal from a penalty kick in the 90th minute of Monday night's game against the MetroStars gave Real Salt Lake a 2-2 tie instead of a loss.

Kreis, the MLS' all-time leading scorer, kicked the ball in the right side of the goal past the MetroStars' Zach Wells to score in front of 20,121 screaming fans and finished a rally by RSL to come back from a 0-2 deficit.

Just 14 minutes into the game, RSL starting defender, Rusty Pierce re-injured his hamstring and near the end of the first half of regulation Brian Dunseth, another RSL starting defender, was ejected after receiving a red card for a hard tackle of MetroStars' Sergio Galvan Rey, forcing RSL to play a man down the remainder of the game.

With Kreis' goal RSL stands at 3-9-4 for the season.
