Kansas City Wizards, Whiteman Air Force Base and the B-2

April 23rd, the Wizards will be playing New York on ESPN2. There will be a pre-game flyover by a B-2 Stealth bomber. There is also a giveaway, the first 5,000 fans or so will receive their very own "Little Jimmy" (Jimmy Conrad bobblehead doll).

On Wednesday, several Wizards players, coaches and staff traveled to Whiteman Air Force Base to get a close up look at a B-2 and conduct a soccer clinic for base children.

When they said don't touch that meant little Jimmy as well...

The pilots will have an escort with them when they do the flyover, Little Jimmy will be in the cockpit that night. Hopefully he will not be at the controls.

Jimmy being Jimmy...


The pilots were asked if they liked the movie Top Gun. The answer was no, not anymore. Someone made sure to let the pilots know that Jimmy starred in the Wizards Top Gun video.

Just a shot of a Stealth Bomber...


The whole crew that went, well not the whole crew. I'm not in the photo...


After the tour, the players gave the soccer clinic.

Lots of enthusiastic soccer playing kids got to do drills that Coach KZ setup...


Afterwards was time for autographs...
