Sporting KC uses Rick Astley to hint at name of new USL team

Sporting KC reserves have long been adoringly referred to as the Swope Park Rangers and most fans were hoping the name of the new USL team would offically don the nickname. After a page became active on the official website recently, the team decided to let us know they are never gonna tell a lie and hurt us.

If our poll is any indication, SKC fans want to see the new USL team to be named the Swope Park Rangers. Like really.. really badly want it.

Well, a page recently became active on the Sporting KC official website titled Rangers. It WAS empty. But now in stead of taking it down, it appears the team is just going to roll with it and let Rick Astley explain. They're never gonna tell a lie and hurt us.

You have to love a good Rick Roll!
