Sucks that the food area in the Members Club at Sporting Park is becoming Grinders with the next game coming up.

Everything that I've heard is that the team is still either Barca or Bayern Munich. Budesliga might even end up paying MLS soon to play in the ASG to advertise their league.

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

With Seattle getting an NBA team (it appears) are they out of the NHL pursuit completely? I thought I remember hearing they wanted both. Sure they want both, but the city is already going to be way over saturated with sports with the Sonics returning. See it going in order something like Seahawks, ...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

Phoenix needs to get rid of its NHL team badly, that would be a great fit KC while the expansion team could go to Suburban Toronto or Quebec City Pretty much a done deal that they're staying in Phoenix. But, I agree with your statement. Not so fast my friend. Jamison has to close by tomorrow on buy...

Re: American Royal leaders propose tearing down Kemper

that decision has been good for KC too. It's not like the arena is dead. it's one of the busiest in the US after all. Not to mention the variety and number of events/concerts came at a good time to help reintroduce a diverse crowd throughout the metro to the revamped DT. Had it just been a sports t...

Re: 2012 Sporting Kansas City

That is the same indigo kit from the last two seasons, it will remain in use one more year. The new main kit and a 3rd kit mainly needed for the Champions League will both be released in February, which means you'll see it leaked sometime this week. :D

Sleeve? Under MLS rules, can't have a sponsor on your sleeve. It's gonna be on the chest and it's most likely gonna be Ivy Funds still.

Re: 2012 Sporting Kansas City

The dude has no sources on any of his "rumors" and the fact that all the other deals are not even truly being talked about at all shows how false this is.

Oh and Ivy Funds, might see that on the front of the jersey this year.

It was quite funny sitting in the Moroccan section of Epcot, reading people's tweets about the sudden cold and sleet while sipping some espresso alcoholic beverage in 80 degree sun.

Re: Grunauer - Austrian restaurant in Freighthouse District

Oktoberfest is going on at Grunauer this weekend. Groupon here . And was it ever a good time as well. Could probably expand the size a bit next year, got a bit cramped Saturday night but I made plenty of new friends while constantly rubbing elbows. $5 for a half litre wasn't a bad deal on a couple ...

Re: 2012 Sporting Kansas City

Also, we clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win. We probably have one anyways as it's almost impossible for anyone outside of the top 5 to catch any of the top teams.

Yeah, I still think this goes somewhere in MO regardless. Dream of Kemper Arena becoming Ikea but MO side will beat KS on anything for this.

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

Looks like Seattle has the approval for a new arena. Would be built only with a commitment of an NBA team (or maybe a NHL team). Previous approval required commitments by both sports. Has a local group on the prowl for a team. I wish someone could convince the Maloofs to sell the Kings. They're jus...

Re: Why don't young Americans buy cars?

I personally hate driving. My license is a glorified ID card for the most part.
