Jimmy Nielsen - Sporting KC vs Real Salt Lake - December 7, 2013

Club captains. Team MVPs. MLS All-Stars and Best XI honorees. MLS Cup and U.S. Open Cup champions.

Suffice to say, Jimmy Conrad and Jimmy Nielsen reached the highest levels attainable in Major League Soccer.

Teammates for the final season of the Wizards era in 2010, Conrad (2003-2010) and Nielsen (2010-2013) were stalwarts in Kansas City's lineup for a decade from 2003-2013.

Recently, both fan favorites joined veteran sports writer David Smale on the Sports Connections podcast to reflect on their time in KC and look back on their illustrious professional careers.
