It's a home game for Sporting KC this evening. Well, sort of. Peter Vermes and Co. will play their very first first-team game of the 2011 season within the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area, as they take on New England Revelution in the last round of US Open Cup qualifying, the winner obviously advancing to the tournament-proper. While the game won't be played at the beautiful new LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, a home game with home fans in your home city is a welcome thing, nonetheless, as Sporting have played 9 straight competitive games on the road.
For those of you watching from the comforts of home tonight, come inside and joinAndy Edwards (live from BVDAC) ofThe Daily Wiz, and (hopefully) a few of its readers for what's known around these parts as an Open Game Thread. We'll be discussing tonight's action live, as it happens on the field.
Also, we'll be streaming a LIVE postgame episode ofThe Daily Wiz's podcast, "Ted And Trent Talkin' Touches"after the game. You can find that right here as soon as the game ends.
