    Uniquely Frustrating - Shades of Blue

    Uniquely Frustrating - Shades of Blue

    All teams frustrate their fans. Some are the team that is always good, but can't win the big one. Think Buffalo Bills. Others are always terrible and never allowed to have anything nice, like the NY Jets. And some are notorious for building you up before tearing it all down. The Tottenham Hotspur effect.
    But Sporting KC have found their own unique way to frustrate fans. They are regularly good. Sometimes great. They tease you with the foreplay of brilliance and dominance. But before long, in that very same game, a mind blowing mistake will hit you with a reminder.
    SKC play well and always look ready to shift into the final gear, but something gets stuck.

    Three wins in a row - Keeping Current

    Three wins in a row - Keeping Current

    When the Kansas City Current opened CPKC Stadium they rocketed off to a fast start and earned their first win of the Andonovski era. Then a win in San Diego but how would they do when the returned? Another win is how. This time 4-2 over Angel City.
    Thad Bell from the Kansas City Soccer Journal is not joined by Daniel Sperry from the KC Star. Sperry skipped out on vacation so the substitute this week is PJ Green from KC Fox 4 local tv station. PJ is a little newer to soccer but has become a go-to local sports reporter for the Current. We get PJ's takes and insights on the game and the season.

Mr. Lake ,

Best Sporting KC podcast

Love the show, normally it’s a four star but with the addition of Stacey it’s a 5 star! Keep it up!

KyleeTinKC ,

MUST. LISTEN.

Back at it again! These guys are hilarious. It’s a great mix of comedy and serious analysis. Thad always being deadpan. Cody trying so hard to get Thad to break. David and Robert are so funny.

McGurkenstein ,

Best KC soccer pod

This pod is awesome, always a pretty chill, comical vibe going on. I appreciate the contrasting views from each person, and find solace in the shared misery we have for this team. Which is why I love that y’all play the whole song at the end of each pod. It’s on point lately.
