The gang were back at it again but this time we had a very special guest. Rob Thomson, Sporting Kansas City Chief Communications Officer stopped in the studio for what was going to be a segment of our regular podcast. It ended up too long and so much fun that it needed to be a standalone pod. For those who dod not know, Rob (or Robo as we all know him) has been with the team since 1997 and has wore a lot of hats in that time. He has known almost every player and has been (at least one of the people) behind most of the great PR moves, promotions and practical jokes that Sporting KC has pulled off so well.  

The chat was supposed to be mostly about the old days but it ranged from stories about the old days to how Sporting KC went through the rebrand. We even find out a potential name before Sporting Kansas City was chosen (and yes it was bad).
