Sporting drop 3 points to the Revs but look forward to a trip to the White House. Also Mario Balotelli sucked helium from a balloon.

Tough loss to swallow last night after clawing back to tie it up, but Sporting KC Vow to "take positives" from the performance. Allowing New England to take the three points moved them into a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference, and now both teams are 3 points back of D.C. United who have yet to play this weekend.

Finally starting to settle in with MLS play, New England Revolution impressed with Jermaine Jones' game-changing ability to score late winner. The winner was Jones' first goal in MLS. Now it was a great strike and no body stepped up so no blame is placed on Kronberg.. but I can't escape the feeling that Andy Gruenebaum could have parried it away.

The first goal however, I do put on Kronberg. He left his line and the goal came in from behind him.

The season is winding down. Who is your MLS MVP? ESPN FC takes a look at some dark-horse candidates for MVP, showing some love to Benny Feilhaber.

"Feilhaber's contributions go well beyond the stat sheet, even while he's good for the occasional great goal or brilliant pass."

While the last couple years it seemed it was growing in importance...Why the Supporters' Shield means nothing in the chase for MLS Cup.

Sporting head to the nation's capitol for the next match on October 3. While there, President Obama to honor Sporting Kansas City in White House ceremony. Happy for the boys to get the opportunity.

I leave you today, with Mario Balotelli playing with helium:
