It is probably my least favorite day of the year, April Fools Day. Two former Sporting KC players got in on the act today. First it was Soony Saad stating on Twitter that he was returning to MLS and Sporting Kansas City. Saad left the team after last season as he was out of contract and moved to Thailand where he plays for BCC Tero on loan from BEC Tero Sasana FC. Dom Dwyer even got in on the play as well. The second one involved former captain and now Oklahoma Energy coach, Jimmy Nielsen. The Energy put out a release saying that because of injuries Nielsen had signed a contract to be available to play for the Energy. I have to say that this one actually did get me and got me thinking that Nielsen actually was set to be an emergency keeper for the Energy.
