Oz City’s State of the Wizards

This is the first annual Oz City “State of the Wizards Address.” (Although nothing can technically be called “annual” until the second occasion.) I would love to see an official version of this by the guy above in the Uncle Sam suit, Robb Heineman. If you don’t know Robb is the President of the Wizards. In many ways this expresses what I’m excited about for the Wizards in 2008 and beyond as well as what I am worried about. I’ve broken it into two major sections: on the field and off the field. Enjoy. Continue reading

Something More Important Than The Wizards

There will be no Wizards news for the first few days this week, everyone is off spending time with family. I thought I’d take this time to mention what this break in the year is about. Until recently I would have thought most would immediately give the answer,  it is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Now I am not sure, I have noticed that increasingly it being redefined to be about family.

I watched the Shrek Christmas special last week. Continue reading

New Domain Name for Oz City

http://www.OzCitySoccer.com

I saw that for a mere $15 I could get a domain name that is easier to remember than kcwizards.wordpress.com so I bought it. The old links should work for the next month, but if you have an RSS feed or a bookmark to the site you should change it to the following address. http://www.ozcitysoccer.com (my first choice ozcity.com was already taken by some company in Australia that doesn’t use it for anything, perhaps they simply wanted to frustrate me). Anyway thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy the site and look forward to a long future of building knowledge and excitement of the team we all love, the KC Wizards.

Giving Up On Being A Quitter

I simply can not stay away. I’ve thought about this site and it can be and ought to be a joyous hobby.I will slow down a bit and make sure this sight is never my top priority. I should also mention I’m going to have to use images on the web from time to time. If asked to remove them by the owner I will immediately, I will not use YCJ photos without permission. I do hope that permission may be granted from time to time as the few pictures of theirs I have looked at are great pictures. I’ve apologized to the individual I have wronged and I believe he has forgiven me, now we move on to covering the Wizards, but please, myself included, let’s not be bigger jerks online than we are in person simply because of the anonymity it provides. I know, not much of a break, I do plan to slow down though there are a few logo based post coming this week.
