MLS Eastern Conference champions...

Real Salt Lake?

Wow.

What a run for the underdogs. They survived (barely) a crazy last weekend in the regular season.

Then they eliminated the defending champs in the first round.

Finally, on Saturday they went to Chicago and eliminated the Fire via shootout (thank you Nick Rimando).

Incredible stuff for a team I've written off over and over again. RSL will play the L.A. Galaxy for the MLS Cup at 5:30 p.m. Sunday here in Seattle.

Do they have one more surprise in store...? Doubtful.
