For Pete's Sake

Sporting KC had the best introduction for its ‘acquisition’ at the MLS SuperDraft

We’ve all come to expect that when a team makes a selection in a draft, that it will share a photo of the player on social media.

Often it comes with a welcome greeting.

But what if the team trades its pick away. That’s what Sporting Kansas City did Thursday at the MLS SuperDraft when it sent the No. 11 overall pick to D.C. United for targeted allocation money. For a primer on what that is, Sam McDowell has a good explaination.

Sporting KC didn’t want to waste its chance to tout its newest acquisition at the draft, and did so in hilarious fashion.

You have to give them credit it for that.
