MatchDay #26: Beat the Burn

The weather (warm with lots of sun), the stadium (signs point to an actual sell-out at Livestrong Sporting Park) and quality of play (Sporting are the on-form side in MLS and 2nd place in the East, Dallas is 3rd in the West) are all aligning perfectly for Kansas City. And, to borrow a phrase from the late great Badger Bob Johnson (he was a hockey coach), "It's a great day for soccer."
