Kansas City Wizards practice 08/07/2008 and press conference

A bunch of kids were out watching today.


They were able to get autographs from several players...


More autographs...

One of my favorite activities at practice comes after the official practice is over. Frequently the players organize competitve game with each other after practice. It normally involves passing and shooting so it helps their skills and feeds some of the competitive juices at the same time. I enjoy it because it is just good fun to watch people have fun. I also get to take some shots that I wouldn't normally get in a game.

Boris Pardo with a backheel shot (not a goal)


Kevin Souter looks like he is ready to take off.


Nelson Pizarro gets air for a nice header


They often use Brad (I think), one of the equipment guys as the goalie for these games. He really is a very good goalie. It did crack me up to watch Boris take out the keeper to try and get a goal.


One of the more awesome shots was this acrobatic effort from Lance Watson. Yeterday at CAB, he had an amazing bicycle shot for a goal. It was after the scrimmage but still impressive.


Light media turnout today...

Metrosports camera and crew...


Bob Luder (KC Star) and Bob Rusert (mlsnet.com)...

During the press conference there is usually players walking out around that time. I saw Josh and Jack walking together, as soon as I pointed the camera towards them Josh hid behind Jack.


He then told Jack about the jelly doughnut shot of Josh Wolff. I did get this one a litte bit later.
