Well done, ye fans of Sporting Kansas City

SKC-Houston fans

HOUSTON – About 100 fans boarded up in cars and a bus yesterday to make the long, long trip south from Kansas City. About 15 hours long, as a matter of fact.

Why drive? Well, airline tickets on three days notice? Yeah, they usually just give those things away, right?

One member of Sporting Kansas City’s staff said airline tickets were starting at $700.

So, driving it is!

The bus trip wasn’t too bad. Equipped with DirectTV, the fans were able to spent a significant chunk of the trip watching live English Premier League Soccer yesterday.

And you can’t get that on most flights – not even for $700 a pop.
