LIVESTRONG Finalist for All Star Game?

Reports out of Philadelphia today are that the bidding to host the 2012 all star game is down to the final two. Union blog, The Brotherly Game is reporting that PPL Park and LIVESTRONG Sporting Park are the two finalists, beating out BC Place of Vancouver and Saputo Stadium in Montreal. Some reports out of Philadelphia are that PPL Park has already won the bid to host the game, but the Brotherly Game article indicates that nothing has been decided.

It'd be cool to have the All Star game in KC. KC is only original city in MLS to not host either MLS Cup or the All Star game so it'd be nice for KC to finally host one of the marquee events of the league.

"KC is one of the few original cities in MLS to not host either MLS Cup or the All Star game"

I'm not sure you understand the definition of the word "few"

Forgive me, KC is actually the ONLY team of the remaining original 9 teams that has not hosted MLS Cup or the all star game.

Let's host both this year

Interesting. Hadn't seen that. Think our chances of hosting are smaller because the Royals hosted the MLB All-Star game?
