ExtraTime Radio: Sporting Kansas City's Benny Feilhaber talks MLS Cup title

The Sporting Life

The guys are still thawing out their limbs back in New York City, but their vocal chords are just fine. That allows them to run down all the biggest storylines from a frigid MLS Cup final in Kansas City, including the freezing temperatures, the heroics of Jimmy Nielsen, the missed opportunities for RSL and the final storyline that gives Sporting KC their first league title since 2000.

They also welcome Sporting KC playmaker Benny Feilhaber on to talk about playing in the coldest game his career, winning a title, what was behind his isolated celebration and why he's on his way to Las Vegas as soon as he drops off his dog.

There's also World Cup news to discuss, but should the US national team really fear the "Group of Death?" Simon and Andrew come down on different sides of the argument, but they can agree on this: Mexico got off easy.

Listeners also sound off on their biggest talking points from MLS Cup, the future of Jason Kreis and an MVP award for Mike Magee, and one island listener offers Simon a chance to warm up after Cup in Hawaii.
