MLS Cup Rematch Leaves Things Level

Since the last post, Sporting Kansas City has had some up’s and down’s but those down’s seem to be as deep as the Mariana Trench.  After having a 1-0 lead against Cruz Azul in the CONCACAF Champions League, Sporting KC was, for lack of a better term, embarrassed in Mexico losing 5-1.  I’m not going […]

Déjà Vu: FC Dallas Scores Late to Deny a Sporting KC Win

​Sporting Kansas City had the high of beating the Liga MX leaders Cruz Azul in CONCACAF Champions League the previous Wednesday.  In between the two legs, Sporting had their home regular season opener against FC Dallas.  Knowing the majority of the resources would be spent on Cruz Azul, no one was really expecting the SKC […]

Sporting KC Loses Late To Seattle Sounders In Season Opener

Sporting Kansas City opened their season as defending MLS Champions.  The team who were perennial losers in almost all facets both on the field and in the front office is now transformed into the winners you see today.  The team who was just looking for respect now has that and will have the distinction of […]

Sporting KC 2014 Season Preview

Before composing this seasons preview, I decided to go back and read what I had written last year.  It showed that a lot has changed for Sporting Kansas City and its fans over a calendar year.  Kansas City hosted the MLS All-Star Game and ended the season by hosting and winning the 2013 MLS Cup. […]

Get Ready for the MLS Cup

Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake will match up in the 18th MLS Cup Final on Saturday December 7 at 4 PM on ESPN along with a one hour pregame show.  I have to admit, ESPN is really marketing the game to the general public and not just soccer fans.  I’ve been seeing commercials […]

Sporting KC Wins In Philly, Falls Short of Supporters Shield

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t expect Sporting Kansas City to be in a position to obtain the Supporters Shield a couple months ago.  A couple months ago, teams like the Montreal Impact, Seattle Sounders and New York Red Bulls were in the drivers seat either by leading the conference or having multiple games […]

After Disappointing Loss in San Jose, SKC Heads to Chicago

Sporting Kansas City, who seems to be playing in big game after big game, had another must win game in San Jose against the Earthquakes last Sunday. Knowing both teams, it was going to be a physical and hard fought game. San Jose is a tough team for Sporting KC and past results have proven […]

How I Found Kansas City as the Center of American Soccer

One of the great things about MLS is that it’s so young as a sports league; a lot of us were around for the beginning.  I was 8 years old when MLS had its inaugural season in 1996 and while I watched MLS in their infancy, I vaguely remember watching it.  I rooted for DC […]

Montreal Outlasts Sporting KC with Dramatic Goal

Sporting Kansas City and the Montreal Impact squared off Saturday night and whatever the result of that game would end up being would shape the end of the season in the Eastern Conference.  Sporting led the Eastern Conference over Montreal by four points heading into the game.  Montreal still has to play two more games […]

Bad Call Dooms Sporting’s Road Trip to DC

The story of the DC United/Sporting Kansas City game essentially began and ended with the offside call on Ike Opara’s disallowed goal in the 30th minute.  I was at the game, sitting where the RFK Stadium visitors are, deep in the back of the stadium behind the goal.  It’s a bad angle to see an offside […]
