CJ Sapong will be the subject of a special Sporting KC rendition of The Bachelor | SIDELINE

Ladies of Kansas City, get your best pick-up lines and awkward first date fun facts ready, because Sporting Kansas City forward C.J. Sapong will be the prize at stake during a special Sporting KC rendition of the popular TV show The Bachelor.

The four Google Hangout contestants were selected on Tuesday and will compete to catch Sapong's eye on Thursday in hopes of finding their one true love, or at the very least a date for Valentine's Day.

And who might you get from the North American soccer world to host that kind of shindig? Former Kansas City Wizard defender, Sporting Kansas City jersey model and Wednesday birthday boy Jimmy Conrad, of course.

The winner of Sapong's affection will be treated to a special coffee date at local coffee company The Roasterie. Sporting KC and The Roasterie recently released a special edition coffee blend called "Sporting Blend."
