Sporting KC player Kei Kamara looked out his window in January and saw a lot of snow. He wanted to have a snowball fight, so he tweeted it.
Long-time Cauldron member and superfan Jeff Szajnuk saw Kamara's Tweet, called fellow supporter Sean Dane, and the pair quickly responded.
@keikamara I'm in. UMKC has a good sled hill too.— Jeff (@szazzy) January 19, 2011
Tweets started flying around with as much intensity as the falling snow the night before. The Kansas City Star picked up the story, and Dane informed as many Cauldron members as possible that there was a must-see event on the horizon.
Sporting players Matt Besler, Michael Harrington and Jon Kempin joined Kamara, and a local marketing firm streamed the event live. After the event, Kamara treated all participants to burritos from his favorite restaurant, Chipotle.
