December 11, 2021, “Sporting Kansas City takes MLS Cup 2021”

You never know... it would be a blast for sure! (2-1 over Philadelphia Union btw.)

But not for the other 26 MLS sides. Sorry, not sorry, you poor saps!

How might some of Sporting’s foes report the news or express their dismay? (In actuality, I’m sure they and all their fans would be respectful and congratulatory...)

Here are a few possibilities:

Los Angeles Galaxy: “Sporting Kansas City wins MLS Cup, Mexican scores.”

Vancouver Whitecaps: “Sporting Kansas City wins MLS Cup, the f*#@ers”

See the related Peter Vermes gif here.

Portland Timbers: “Sporting Kansas City actually puts PK between double posts, wins MLS Cup”

Real Salt Lake: “Sporting Kansas City wins MLS Cup, center back escapes red card again!”
