Konrad Warzycha, 25, celebrates a goal against Penn State

Sporting Kansas City announced the signing of Konrad Warzycha today -- offspring of Columbus Crew coach Robert Warzycha -- and while the imposing midfielder isn't with the team in pre-season after having knee surgery last week, he told The Sporting Way that the surgery went well and he will be rehabbing as hard as he can to return for his rookie season.Lots of other links to catch up on for Thursday:
