For those of you who have yet to see it, My Friday story for ESPN.com this week was on the Kansas City Wizards and the turnaround they have enjoyed under new coach Curt Onalfo. As you may know from reading SBI, I have pegged the Wizards to be this season’s surprise team and after talking to Onalfo and Jimmy Conrad, and seeing them play, I’m even more confident about that call.
The story provides some insight into that period of time that saw the Wizards struggle (2005-2006), as well as the changes under Onalfo. There are also some very interesting quotes from Conrad that could be seen as pointed comments directed at certain former teammates. I won’t say who but I think it isn’t tough to figure it out.
There is plenty about the Wizards that I wasn’t able to get into the story. I will share the extra stuff on Monday on SBI.
Read the story and let me know what you think. Share your thoughts on the story and the Wizards below.
