Welcome to this week's installment of this year's No. 1 recurring series "The Most Important Game of the Season for Sporting Kansas City." It's been one of the most successful series in modern memory. (It sure beats the heck out of the thankfully cancelled "The Wizards are Still Technically in the Playoff Hunt but Not Really" that ran in this slot for the last few years.)
Tonight, it's Philadelphia. (And about 50 traveling Sons of Ben will bring their"DOOPing"
to Livestrong Sporting Park.) Nothing major hangs in the balance. You know, apart from out-right first place in the Eastern Conference and a solid hand-hold on the oft-slippery slope of Mt. Playoffs.
