    Besler had sent this" "If you're not using TweetCaster as your mobile twitter app you need to asap...it has the best and most features! @Handmark" Not sure which was first though.

    So Beasler scored the team's first endorsement deal I see. Jealous much?

    Not necessarily true. Twitter has been a place were a lot of the players have endorsed products. Have you not noticed the Chipotle tweets from Kie, or the smoothie king tweets from Kempin

    To be fair, I don't know that any of those are actually endorsement deals. Kei just ahs an unnatural love of burritos.

    And Kempin legitimately goes to Smoothie King a lot.

    Today at 2 p.m., I'll be hosting a live chat on KansasCity.com. So, please, check in later this afternoon to ask questions, discuss theories, bag on Pacific Northwest fans and/or whatever. Link to come.

    2 things for those of you that don't get sports illustrated (i only get it because of extra rewards points). every issue they have a who's hot who's not bit. they just list 4 things that are hot in the world of sports and then list 4 things that are somewhat related on the opposite end. skc gets a mention as one of the "hot" items. it goes on to say:

    the "not so sporting" opposite bit belongs to chicago forward nazarit for getting suspended and fined, and dc's davies for his diving fine.

    then, on the very next page, they have another regular bit they always do called "the pop culture grid." they take 4 athletes and then get simple responses to pop culture stuff. skc's own teal bunbury is one of the 4. here are his 5 responses:

    "if i were a transformer, i'd turn into..."
    teal: optimus prime

    "i'd never take a cellphone pic of..."
    teal: teammate michael harrington

    "favorite girl scout cookie"
    teal: thin mints

    "july 4th vacation dream spot"
    teal: nyc

    "book in my summer beach bag"
    teal: applying the kingdom, by myles monroe

    nothing incredible here, but it's always interesting to see skc get some love in large publications like this. i've seen kei on that pop culture thing before, if i recall correctly... and i'm almost positive i remember seeing jimmy conrad a year or so ago.

    What a great interview. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. A must listen to podcast, i am sure it is up on 810's website somewhere. KK came out with hard and very strong questions. He even busted out Rob's call the day after the home opener.

    I agree. Maybe the most "professional" treatment of a soccer related interview I have heard. Granted, I am out of market so havent heard THAT many, but was refreshing to hear an interview with that much focus instead of just the usual media-plug. Was great to hear the interviewer repeate multiple times that "Kansas City teams just don't make this big of a turn around". Was kind of a dig at the Royals and Chiefs,and praise for SKC.

    Zusi interviewed on Fox Soccer Report's MLS Pulse. Nice of FSC to show highlights of the Newcastle match.

    Probably the first time I've seen a SKC player commenting on an article about themselves.

    Nothing groundbreaking, but still amusing nonetheless. So they do indeed read these things.

    I did not have a burger since the first watch party til last night, wow, did they somehow get worse in that time frame? It was a near puck and tasted like crap.

    My love of the MC, while never much, continues to wane.....

    I've bought 1 burger a game basically every game. They've been fine until last night, burger was over cooked and dry, and the bun was stale.

    Yeah, if I would have eaten earlier in the day, I would have chucked it but I was so hungry that I stomached it down. Not enjoyable at all.
