Welcome Sporting Kansas City to MLS and other links

sportingkc.jpgKansas City is building a sparkling new stadium for the 2011 MLS season — something I got a sneak peek of a couple months ago — and with that major change the franchise has also decided to re-brand. Say goodbye to the K.C. Wizards and say hello to Sporting Kansas City. Here’s a story of the change from a local newspaper and here’s a link to the new team website with all sorts of features.

The name change has received a largely negative response from what I’ve seen on Twitter, but I appreciate the effort to gain some more interest in the local market — even if the “Sporting” thing is a bit weird. Though it’s not like the “Wizards” name was anything too special.

Be sure to offer your thoughts in the comments section. Here are some other links:

FYI, I’ll be helping out with Seahawks coverage and some other odd assignments in the couple months of the offseason. I will try to update the blog as much as possible, however, in the meantime.
