Rounding Into Form - Shades of Blue

S4:E24 - First place and a battle for the top of the MLS Western Conference this weekend? This week is a vibe.

MLS: Minnesota United FC at Sporting Kansas City Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a good week to be in The Blue Hell!

Sporting KC is sitting atop the MLS Western Conference after a huge 4-0 win over Minnesota United FC. The whole team appears to be rounding into form at just the right time. Including Johnny Russell, who had maybe lost a bit of the “F” in his middle name early in the year. There’s been a few peak JFR moments recently. And how about Khiry Shelton! Was this his best performance for SKC?

We look ahead to this weekend as the Seattle Sounders come to town in a battle for the top of the table. As if matches between these two teams weren’t already fiery enough. Seattle has a very deep & talented squad, but is KC catching them at just the right time?

We also take some time to assess Alan Pulido’s athleticism after his first pitch at the Kansas City Royals game. How did he do?
