Beckerman set to star on "MLS 36"


Ready to get to know RSL captain Kyle Beckerman a little bit better?

We sure hope so, because you’re about to get that chance.

The NBC Sports Network will be documenting Beckerman’s every move from Thursday morning through Saturday night for an episode of its in-depth, day-in-the-life series “MLS 36.” Cameras will follow Beckerman everywhere he goes, taking viewers inside the dreadlocked dynamo’s world for 36 straight hours as he and his teammates prepare for Saturday night's big home match against D.C. United.

The 30-minute episode – which, as of writing, has no set air date – will be an exciting experience for Beckerman, who saw the “MLS 36” crew at work with San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski when the two players were in Philadelphia for July’s All-Star Game.

“It's strange, for sure," Beckerman told reporters when asked about “MLS 36” after training on Tuesday. "It's cool. I'll try and represent the club the right way. That’s why I agreed to do it. I want to get Real Salt Lake out there."

NBC Sports Network has already aired two episodes of “MLS 36,” profiling Wondolowski and Seattle forward Fredy Montero earlier this summer. Click the links to watch each episode in its entirety.
