Exactly one month ago, Sporting Kansas City had earned a meager 6 points on the season and sat at the bottom of the league with a 1-6-3 record. They were dead. Done. Finished. People had written off the season, called for the coaches head, pondered what KC needed to do next.
Now, if a few results shake out in Kansas City's favor this week, they could be within 1 point of first place in the Eastern Conference by the time Sunday rolls around. From the outhouse to potentially the penthouse in a month.
I'm just sayin'... If Sporting Kansas City wins against Colorado and Chivas, New York losses or draws its two matches (Toronto tonight, D.C. United on Saturday) and Philadelphia loses its only game (San Jose on Saturday).
That's not an entirely impossible scenario.
