The Full 90

TMK: Today's the day...

Look, you need to read more words from me (or The Star) about Sporting Kansas and/or Livestrong Sporting Park like you need to hear a cable news channel mention Rep. Anthony Weiner and/or his, um, you know what I mean.

Which of course means that I'm going to add just a few more. For the record: The Star has dropped nearly 7,000 words spread between six writers all told in the last 24 hours.

So, because you're pumped and likely busy, today's Morning Kickoff is just links. We'll be back around lunch with our game preview.

Sporting KC veteran Davy Arnaud very excited about first game at new home.

There's no place like home for KC's most dedicated fans.

Sporting president Robb Heineman eager for the opening of Livestrong Park.

Sporting tries to fan flames of rivalry with Fire.

You're a Sporting Member - just like everyone else. And, that might be OK.

Music kicks off the new stadium with Republic Tigers.

• The Star's Pete Grathoff will be sitting in today at 3 p.m. to answer questions in a special Sporting KC chat. Make sure you pop on and check that out.

• OK, one last thing: There are six KC players (each teams has six reps) on the All-Star ballot. Davy Arnaud, Matt Besler, Omar Bravo, Teal Bunbury, Roger Espinoza and Kei Kamara.
