For the Glory KC is back with the 77th episode of the show!

We start this week with Sporting Kansas City and their utter collapse against the LA Galaxy. Sadly, it was a game they utterly dominated if not for the eight minutes of terror. You simply cannot give up three goals in eight minutes and expect to win. You also can’t go up 2-0 and lose games.

I do a deliriously short podcast in the middle of the night after the ups and downs of Saturday night. A little For the Glory KC after dark, if you will.

The KC Current were around to lift our spirits right after Sporting KC crushed them. They found a way to win on the road against the defending Shield winners, the San Diego Wave. The Current feel like they are going to be really good this year. They did it without two more players, Hailie Mace and Debinha, who showed up on the injury report. Their replacements did quite well!

In the Digital Crawl, we touch on the following topics:

  • SKC’s MLS Cup Odds
  • Dany Rosero’s Team of the Week win
  • The KC Current/Portland Thorns TV ratings from ABC
  • The NWSL/Liga MX Femenil Summer Camp announcement
  • Two KC Comets legends retire
  • A brief discussion of that wild USMNT game against Jamaica
  • A fun Sacha Kljestan story with the Des Moine Menace
  • Plus, our usual Messi/Arrowhead update (it’s sorta bleak)

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

  • Sporting KC collapse – 1:26
  • The KC Current ride high – 20:34
  • Digital Crawl – 28:49

Upcoming Schedule:

  • KC Current vs Angel City FC, Saturday, March 30th @ 2:30 PM CST
  • Sporting KC @ Toronto FC, Saturday, March 30th @ 6:30 PM
