Colorado Bounces Kansas City From U.S. Open Cup
If a MLS team loses in the U.S. Open Cup, and no one is there to see it, did it actually happen?
The answer is yes, which is unfortunate if you happen to support the Kansas City Wizards.
According the the Kansas City Star, only 1,226 people showed up at UMKC to watch the home team fall out of the U.S. Open Cup, 2-1 against Colorado.
Teal Bunbury opened the scoring for the Wizards in the fourth minute, but the Wizards were undone by two goals from Wells Thompson in the 24th and 80th minutes.
Sunil Chhetri, the first player from India in MLS, did make his debut for the Wizards last night. He didn’t take a shot and picked up a yellow card in 45 minutes of action.

Beasley wants to stay with Rangers
I heard a DaMarcus Beasley-to-New York rumor, but it seems he’s more interested in securing his future in Glasgow.
He told the American Chronicle, “I mean it when I say I love playing for this club. I have got a bond here now and it would be hard for me to leave. This is my third year here and I’ve got a lot of friendships inside the club and also with the fans. It feels like home for me now here in Glasgow.
“That’s a tough thing for me to say being from Fort Wayne, Indiana but it’s honestly how I feel.”
The winger is out of contract at the end of the season.
Davies pushing for early-May return
U.S. international Charlie Davies is hoping to complete a remarkable recovery from a October 2009 car crash.
In that accident, he suffered a lacerated bladder, two broken bones in his right leg, a fractured elbow and numerous facial injuries.
But Davies, who plays for French side Sochaux, is training and could be back early next month.
