ExtraTime Radio: Dom Dwyer leads Sporting KC to MLS Cup, plus Real Salt Lake GM Garth Lagerwey

Going To Kansas City

The MLS Cup final is set, and there's little argument that the teams who survived the Conference Championships - Sporting Kansas City in the East and Real Salt Lake in the West - are in form just at the right time for a tantalizing matchup on Dec. 7.

First up, the guys hash out the details with Sporting Kansas City hero Dom Dwyer, who explains why he took to Twitter after the game Saturday to take down his critics, what his season was like in Orlando and what he sees in Real Salt Lake as a worthy foe in MLS Cup.

Next it's Real Salt Lake GM Garth Lagerwey back on the show, this time celebrating the second trip to the title game in franchise history. Lagerwey dishes on the fateful trade for Robbie Findley, the future of head coach Jason Kreis and why RSL had the mettle to top the Portland Timbers after years of frustration.

The guys also discuss Landon Donovan's role as an analyst with Fox, the Rookie of the Year race and why Simon returned the sweater his wife bought for him. Photo above courtesy of Mike Gunnoe.
