I suppose something important happened yesterday. Several important things. By now, thousands of words have been written about Livestrong Sporting Park so I won't put a strain on your eyes by adding my thoughts. Here's what people are saying:
•Sporting KC names stadium for Livestrong foundation
•Sporting KC's stadium name is nearly pitch perfect
•"My football team and I are going to save lives"
(The Sporting Times)
•Sporting gets a sponsor
•Sporting Kansas City brands stadium with Livestrong
(Match Fit USA)
•Sporting KC give stadium naming rights to Livestrong for free
•The full details
• There was a game last night, and, according to Twitter (all from Real Salt Lake players)it descended into a brawl.
• The team returns from Phoenix this afternoon to complete preparation for the season, which begins in Los Angeles on March 19.
• The Gold Cup was announced.The United States will play in KC on June 14.
Sporting Kansas City did a fantastic job of overshadowing that news.
• Something else that the Livestrong announcement overshadowed:Barcelona's 3-1 (4-3 aggregate) victory over Arsenal. "expected a lot more from (Arsenal) to be honest." took "full responsibility" for the loss. charged Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and midfielder Samir Nasri with improper conduct.
