The Kansas City Wizards square off against Chivas USA tonight at
CommunityAmerica Ballpark (1800 Village West Parkway, Kansas City,
Kansas). Chivas USA is not owned by a liquor concern. Rather, it's a
sister team to Club Deportivo Guadalajara of the Mexican League. Club
Deportivo Guadalajara is known commonly as Chivas, or Goats. In its
first season of MLS play, Chivas USA used only Mexican players. That
was a disaster, though it made some sense from a marketing perspective
(the team shares Los Angeles with the Galaxy). Today's Goats are
primarily U.S.-born and coached by a Serbian — Preki, the
Wizards' all-time leading scorer. Tonight's game begins at 7:30.
Warning: It's "Dog's Night," so there will be a lot of four-legged
fútbol fans in the audience. Call 913-387-3400 for tickets or
