Last night I attended the first game at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City. It's a memory my son and I will always have. The game wasn't stellar, but the stadium, buzz, and excitement were extraordinary.

I have another blog, one that analyzes Sporting KC. I post there about the stadium (among other things). Click here: Sporks Take

Brian's blog has some cool pictures of last night also. Click here: Hough Family Blog

I saw the piece on FSR the other night showing off the excellent facility. Congratulations! Now may excellent soccer follow - hopefully from the home team.

Did you and your son arrive 3 hrs before kickoff, or did they just build a surfeit of parking spots?

Cheri and I figured you would be there with all the boys. Awesome Reymond tailgate truck. But come on…. No one thought to bring eaten utensils. Bet that won’t happen again. Love the classic bend the paper plate and lick shot. Wow, great pics by Brian! What an exciting exhibit of pure sports enthusiasm. Did you get to talk with Lance Armstrong about Jesus?
You being there on opening night at Livestrong Sporting Park is about as memorable as Cheri and I, going to see the great Elton John opening night at the Sprint Center. I think Elton is wonderful.

We got there 2.5 hours before...tailgated with friends.

Woody- did you actually compare the sacred experience of being at the opening soccer game at LSP with something involving Elton John? Oh my.
