SBI MLS Team of the Week: Sporting Kansas City

To say Sporting Kansas City had a good week doesn't do justice to what a special week it was for the fans of the team formerly known as the Kansas City Wizards.

First, Sporting KC won the club's first trophy in eight years with a dramatic penalty shootout victory in the U.S. Open Cup Final, then the team shook off the celebratory hangover in time to beat Eastern Conference rival D.C. United at home to jump into first place in the East.

Sporting KC's dream week made them the easy choice for SBI MLS Team of the Week. They beat out the LA Galaxy, Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls for the honors this week.

What did you think of Sporting KC's performances this past week? What MLS team impressed you the most in the past week?

    Queue up the Seattle whining…

  3. Josh says:

    Seconded. Great week

  4. BSU SC says:

    Great week for SKC fans. They definitely deserve some success to celebrate. Don’t be surprised if the MLS Cup is the next addition to the trophy case.

  5. Don Garber says:

    Yes, please Sounders supporters, I don’t quite think I’ve heard your argument yet.

    Could you go ahead and tell me why SKC doesn’t deserve the Cup and you do? Oh, and could you explain why you choked at San Jose?

    I need to know. Please elaborate, I’m sure most readers would appreciate seeing it just one more time.

    Thanks buds!

    people bringing it up in the first place and acting like little children pretty much means jealousy

  16. Eddie Vedder says:

    We’ve all moved on.. good luck with your Ultra fantasy

  17. t says:

    You brought it up.
    It was deserved win for LCD.
    Ref was equally calling.
    I as right behind goal.
    He moved way early. Deal.
    Lots of calls are missed part of game.
    Gives the fans something to argue.
