The second part of the series looked at Besler's hectic 2013, which included winning the MLS Cup and in less than a week later, marrying his long-time girlfriend Amanda Miller.
The feature also looks at the rise of Kansas City from a franchise that once ranked last in MLS in merchanise sales to one that is considered by some to be the Soccer Capital of America. Watch the second part of the series below and tune in to Fox4kc Sunday night for the final part.
In case you missed it, episode 5 of The Benny Feilhaber Show dropped last week. And while the latest episode featured the ever-popular lip-syncing intro with Benny and Sal as well as recurring segments "What the Bleep" and "#AskBenny", last week's episode also added new segment.
Many MLS fans might be familiar with the weekly series Instant Replay, where MLSsoccer.com's Simon Borg gives his take on the controversial calls from the previous weekend. Well Benny decided to one-up Simon with his version of Not So Instant Replay (fast forward to 3:00).
Not So Instant Replay was so well-received, that Simon chose to incorporate into his latest Instant Replay. Check out the latest episode.
Cast your vote below for the Man of the Match for Sporting Kansas City's 1-0 loss against D.C. United at RFK Stadium. Voting is open until Sunday evening.
Prior to the month of May, Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer had six goals in 24 MLS regular season appearances. Thirty days later he's doubled his career total with six goals in the past six games.
Not only is Dwyer the league's leading scorer this month -- tied with New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips, who is idle this weekend -- he is also the only MLS player with two multi-goal games in May. Dwyer has one more opportunity to put an exclamation point on his recent run, and move back atop the Golden Boot race, when Sporting Kansas City takes on D.C. United at RFK Stadium at 6 p.m. CT on Saturday.
After all, Dwyer has scored goals in three of the team's past four road matches (including both in the month of May) and scored in the last meeting with D.C. United, a 1-0 victory at Sporting Park in October.
SIX GAMES. SIX GOALS. SIX GIFS.
The Sporting KC Show aired last night on Sports Radio 810 WHB live from Jazz at the Legends. Hosts Callum Williams, Andy Edwards and Carter Augustine welcomed Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin on site and Washington Post's Steven Goff was able to dial in to join the conversation.
Collin played the full 90 minutes against the New York Red Bulls on Tuesday after missing two matches with a right hamstring strain. The Frenchman led all players on the pitch winning 11 duels and seven of nine aerial duels at Sporting Park. Yesterday, Collin was nominated as a 2014 MLS All-Star, after receiving the accolade in each of the last two seasons (2012, 2013).
Hear Collin give his thoughts on Sporting KC's start to the 2014 season followed by Goff's preview of Saturday's matchup at RFK Stadium:
Wednesday night, Sporting KC learned that they would be playing Real Esteli and Deportivo Saprissa in the group stage of the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League.
Remember the last time Sporting KC played Real Esteli? Of course you do ... it happened last September.
But were you there the last time Kansas City played Deportivo Saprissa? The two sides squared off in the quarterfinals of the 2005 CONCACAF Champions' Cup with Saprissa advancing with a 2-1 aggregate score.
Kansas City, with current assistant coach Kerry Zavagnin holding down the midfield, held the Costa Rican side to a scoreless draw at Arrowhead Stadium. Saprissa took care of business at home, however, winning the second leg 2-1 in extra time en route to their third CONCACAF Champions' Cup crown.
