Benny Feilhaber’s rocket golazo early in the second half evened Sporting KC with hosts Real Salt Lake and, while not on the level of his heroics in 2007, showed the veteran midfielder still has some fire in his step.
A reader emailed us to tell us about a Twitter exchange he had with some members of the Columbus Crew last night. I'll let him explain:
In the most MLS injury ever, Jimmy Neilsen, the Danish goalkeeper for Sporting Kansas City, was hit in the eye with a flying Omar Bravo bobblehead last night. He laid on the pitch for about four minutes, got stitched up, and returned to play in a 3-1 win over Portland.

More precisely, a streaker in a cow costume. That's how the rebranded SKC opened Livestrong Park. It was to be the only goal on a rainy night, so we don't think the fans are booing as the cowman is dragged off the field. We think they're mooing. [h/t Kyle, others]
We honestly love Chad Ochocinco without reserve. He's like if a little kid wished to the Big fortune teller machine to be a pro athlete, and got it. His actions seem genuine, so we weren't as turned off as a lot of people by his experiment with Sporting KC, to see if he still had his soccer skills from high school.
Sporting Kansas City received more single-day publicity today than it has in possibly eternity by inviting publicity provocateur and soccer hobbyist Chad Ochocinco to audition for the team. Does Ochocinco have a realistic shot at making the team? Psssh. Will he be faster than Omar Bravo, the gifted Mexican striker…
Goodbye, Kansas City Wizards. Hello, Sporting Kansas City. Or as we will refer to them hereafter, The Fightin' Gerunds.
