Instant Reactions to Sporting KC Bouncing St. Louis from the Playoffs

Who needs sleep? Instead, lets dive into all the things that stood out from Sporting KC sweeping St. Louis City out of the playoffs.

For the Glory KC is back with the 58th episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City send St. Louis packing from the playoffs as the eight seed upsets the one seed. Sheena and I have instant reactions from the night of the victory instead of going to bed. We break down the goals (highlights here) and all the big events from the game.

It was another incredible atmosphere, and sadly the last Sporting KC home game of 2023, no matter how many more games they manage to win (the New York Red Bulls ruined that minor home MLS Cup chance by getting eliminated).

We also discuss our favorite memes from the night from Zach throwing the cease and desist back in their face, or the fact that St. Louis invented soccer in 2023 (and many other things, like getting eliminated without winning any games).

Then it’s question time. I ask Sheena a question (is this season a success?) and she asks me one (who do I want in the next round for SKC?).

The KC Current have a pretty quiet week, but we at least give them (and really the NWSL) some attention in the Digital Crawl.

Speaking of the Digital Crawl, y’all, we dive into the following topics:

  • Gadi Kinda gets fined for simulation/embellishment.
  • NWSL announce a terrible expansion draft plan.
  • Emma Hayes is set to be the next USWNT coach.
  • Saudi Arabia are running unopposed for the 2034 World Cup.

Here is a quick rundown of topics (and approximate start times):

  • Sporting KC versus St. Louis City – 2:36
  • All the SKC/STL Memes and nonsense – 34:08
  • Is this season a success? – 39:29
  • Houston or Real Salt Lake? – 46:59
  • Antoine Griezmann to SKC? – 56:17
  • Digital Crawl – 1:00:31

Upcoming Games

  • Houston Dynamo @ Real Salt Lake – Monday, Nov. 6th at 8:00 PM CST
    • IF needed: Game 3 @ Houston, Saturday, Nov 11th at 3:00 PM
  • USA vs. Korea Republic (U-17 World Cup) – Sunday, Nov 12th at 7:00AM (FS1)

Spotify took away our ads (which is a win for most, because they pay so little and annoyingly break up the podcast), so we turned on “Listener Support.” Don’t feel obligated, but if you are a rich person and fan of the pod, we’ll take your money.

Big thanks to Splitter Conspiracy (listen to them here) for our theme music made with the permission of the KC Cauldron.
