Wizards In The Community
A number of Wizards players will be out and about in the greater Kansas City community this weekend, highlighted by defender Jimmy Conrad's participation with the Kansas Special Olympics Awards Gala in Olathe. On Saturday, September 16th, Conrad will be helping recognize the athletes who be competing in the Kansas Special Olympics' state soccer tournament earlier that day. The Gala will be held at the American Legion in Olathe at 410 East Dennis Avenue. Earlier in the day a trio of Wizards will be out at various soccer competitions. Lance Watson will be signing autographs at the Southern Platte County Athletic Association games at Tiffany Springs Park from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Defender Tyson Wahl will be doing the same at the Western Missouri Soccer League's complex in the Northland from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. And veteran Sasha Victorine will be greeting fans at Raytown Soccer Club's Tournament In The Woods at the Raytown Soccer Fields from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
These guys are so cool.
I volunteered to assist with the Special Olympics for the first time last spring. What a wonderful experience. Conrad just earned an even greater measure of respect from me for helping out at that event. What a guy.
Hell just froze over. George posted on BigSoccer!
Was thinking the same thing. Where's the sixth horseman?
I've been ducking under stuff as I walk around all day because I'm expecting a meteor to knock me in the head any time now.
dude, go buy a dodge ram... those things can take direct meteor hits and keep on truckin'

how's this gonna affect the meet and greet?
Well, this Wizards function does not start until 7:00 pm. So, you come to the meet-n-greet for a few hours, then head to the casino for the Wizards function.
What's wrong with the acoustic portion of "Enter Sandman" that they play now? I get goose bumps when I hear it...
you mean insturmental.
Or even instrumental... Yeah...
Although acoustic would be interesting...
Not a damn thing...
Now come on...why would you have a song with instruments when you could have a guy spinning someone else's music on a couple of turntables? <shudder>. I'd personally like to hear something like the Bouncing Souls "Here We Go" blasting through the loudspeakers but then I'm obviously not the Wizards target demo.
that 75% of professional teams have this as an entrance song.
plus it sucks.
