From enemy to fan favorite

In digging through the Deseret News photo archives yesterday looking for photos from previous Real Salt Lake vs. Colorado Rapids matches, I stumbled on this gem from a 2006 meeting at Invesco Field.

A year later Kyle Beckerman and Andy Williams would be teammates, but back then they were fierce competitors. In the eyes of RSL fans, Beckerman was always public enemy No. 2 after the loathed Pablo Mastroeni.

It’s amazing things can change, as now Beckerman is a fan favorite at Real Salt Lake along with Williams.
