With Sporting KC getting ready to kick off their 20th season in MLS (at some time this year depending on work stoppage), I figured I'd start doing a look back at the team's history, not just the games but other stuff involving the team. For a daily dose of "on this date" stuff I suggest that you follow the Sporting KC On This Date Twitter account.
I'll post commercials, photos, videos, etc if there's something related to Sporting's history and their upcoming league opponent I might throw some stuff out on that as well.
This week though is a look at and old Kansas City Wizards television advertisement for the 2000 season. Coming three years after the original Austin Powers movie, and one year after "The Spy Who Shagged Me" the Wizards had this commercial advertising their games on Metro Sports at the time. The ad featured campy dialogue from the players with an Austin Powers impression from the likes of Nick Garcia, Chris Henderson, and Chris Klein. Other players that featured in the commercial were Bo Oshoniyi, Chris Brown, Brandon Prideaux, and Brian Johnson.
And I wondered at the time why more people didn't come to the games...
