sporting kc.

Today the MLS All-Star game is taking over Kansas City. This part of the country is not exactly what I would think to be particularly welcoming of soccer. It is, afterall, the heartland--where burgers, beers, and football reign supreme. However, with the construction of Sporting Park (formerly Livestrong Park), a new team name (formerly the Wizards) and a little rebranding, Kansas Citians embraced soccer with open arms. Quite a number of weeks ago, on an unusually cool night in June, the family got together for a night out at Sporting Park to watch my cousin's soccer team take the field before the game.
