For the first time since the club rebranded as Sporting Kansas City, the team will open the MLS season at home. Today MLS announced the home openers for all the teams, and Kansas City will be opening the season at home on Sunday, March 8th.
Sporting KC will play the New York Red Bulls at Sporting Park in a 6pm kick off to start the season.
The Dynamo fell 1-0 at Red Bull Arena last night in a match that was pretty frustrating for all
of us to watch. It sucks to lose a second straight match against a conference opponent, but there's
still plenty of time left in the season. Thankfully, as we learned last season, MLS can be very
forgiving to poor starts, though considering all the road games it's not really a poor start.
Well, it's not the end of the world losing tonight but I'm not impressed by the fact the Dynamo
are regressing a bit. There are some legitimate reasons for that tonight (adjusted lineup,
injuries, end of a long roap trip), but I'll probably just end up sounding like I'm making excuses.
Let's be honest though, the New York Red Bulls won tonight because they capitalized on yet another
defensive mistake by Houston.

Game day! It's been quite a while since our last and, as such, the Portland Timbers are

Galaxy and Chivas USA, should the results pan out how we like.

Despite what some people on some local radio stations may think, Kansas City has their biggest game
since the 2004 MLS Cup on Wednesday when they play the Seattle Sounders in the US Open Cup final.
