No waiting at Kansas City International. No cramming into an airline seat. No bland hotel food. No cross-country trek. Tonight, Sporting Kansas City is finally home.
With the bright lights of ESPN2 (the game kicks off at 9 p.m.), Kansas City opens Livestrong Sporting Park -- a process that has been 15 1/2 years in the making -- against the Chicago Fire.
It looks like rain (maybe hail?) could be in the forecast. Well, what else did you expect from a stadium opening in Kansas?
