Kansas City's reputation on the national stage dipped some time in the last half-century. Rodgers and Hammerstein immortalized it as a place with all the latest technologies and amenities in "Oklahoma!" while Leiber and Stoller's protagonist, eventually voiced by stars like The Beatles, James Brown and Fats Domino, painted it as land full of wild women and flowing wine.But while the "Paris of the Plains" moniker is now mostly tossed around with tongue planted in cheek, Sporting CEO Robb Heineman and his partners have turned the region into an international-caliber soccer city. The crowds are outstanding, the stadium and facilities stunning, and the team continues to find success.

So it's no surprise U.S. international center back Matt Besler elected to take a designated player deal to stay with Sporting Kansas City, rather than pursuing opportunities to sign with a European club.Besler made the decision after a successful World Cup that capped a whirlwind year for him. After being thrown to the wolves at the start of the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, Besler became an indispensable part of Klinsmann's roster yiheng@$0723 . He helped the team to a hexagonal-topping campaign, and played a qualifier against Jamaica that amounted to a victory lap in front of his home fans. He lifted the MLS Cup in front of those same fans and celebrated with his new bride after getting married just after Sporting's triumph.

Rather than risk his status as a hometown hero, he has likely cemented legend status among the Sporting faithful, all while staying in the community he has grown up and invested in. With all the transfer talk of players being sold and teams targeting stars, it's far too easy to forget that players are humans who have real relationships and real lives away from the office like anyone else. Staying home, especially for a newlywed 27-year-old now making a significant amount of cash, isn't too tough of a decision. Maybe that's why he's apathetic about criticism of his choice.
