Manchester United Week, Day 1: It's not every week a global icon comes to town

This should be a massive week for Kansas City soccer. It's fairly likely (there is still no news as of this writing) that the Wizards will sign their second ever designated player, Mexican international Omar Bravo. The Overland Park Soccer Complex will host the US Youth Soccer National Championships starting Tuesday, with the Under 19 boys James P. McGuire Cup final on Saturday broadcast on Fox Soccer Channel. And, then, of course, there's the small matter of the world's richest and most popular soccer team, Manchester United, coming to town for an exhibition against the Wizards at Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday.
