SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake’s newly appointed general manager, Elliot Fall, is still smiling and trying to have a good time. That is, despite the madness and chaos that coronavirus has caused the world.

A video posted by Real Salt Lake shows Fall reading mean Tweets directed at him, a concept that is best known, and first introduced, on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show.

The first Tweet Fall reads is, “I am okay with Fall because I pretty much know nothing about him.”

In which Fall responds with “well, it is probably the nicest thing anyone is going to say in here so…”

My favorite reaction from Fall came when he read, “so far a pretty big failure from the front office.” In which Fall responded with “I mean I need context, like, when was this?”

We learned that all of the Mean Tweets usernames remained anonymous after Fall was reminded of his bussing days at Market Street Broiler, a local seafood restaurant in Salt Lake City. “They didn’t give me who these people are but thank you to whoever that is,” Fall said.

During times of crisis and pandemonium, it was refreshing to see Fall have fun, despite it being at his own expense.

The Major League Soccer originally suspended their season for 30 days, however, that postponement has been extended with a season return date hopeful for May 10, 2020.

Through the first two games of the season, RSL mustered two draws. A 0-0 start to the season against Orlando City and a 1-1 nailbiter against the New York Red Bulls in the home opener.
