Hurrican Ike and Dynamo Basic News

25 09 2008

Jeff and I are still recovering from Hurricane Ike. Jeff got almost 2 ft of water plus 1 ft of mold in his place, and I hear my house is fine, but haven’t returned yet. Where we work in our real lives remains closed; so we will either be posting very little trying to clean up, or a lot because we can’t go back to work yet… The Houston Dynamo home game against San Jose was postponed, and they are currently traveling for Champion League games. Before they left, the team did a wonderful thing and helped distribute supplies at a POD (Point of Distribution) for people in need of basic necessities (food, water, ice). Way to be Dynamo!





Sierra Mist GOW Thoughts

18 08 2008

Another wonderful week of soccer has past, and now we should vote on the Sierra Mist Goal of the Week.  To help those of you who will never watch all videos, I think you should vote for Ricardo Clark.  I’m going to claim that it is just a coincidence that he happens to play for the Dynamo. But here are my thoughts on all of them.

Brian Carroll (Columbus Crew): nod for first goal in this MLS season, but that’s about it.

Jeff Cunningham (FC Dallas): nod for 100th MLS goal, but then he clumsily falls on the goalkeeper.

Ronnie O’Brien (San Jose Earthquakes): One touch over Matt Reis (who I feel is just behind, in my non-biased judgement, the best damn goalkeeper in the league, Pat Onstad) – so not bad

Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo): Beautiful. First of the season. 25 yards out (actually remember being at the game and thinking, what the hell is he doing from way out here…oh…scoring a goal).

Mike Magee (New York Red Bulls): Beats defender in foot race to the ball (good), but not a super exciting shot (no need since he beat the defenders).





Beckham Down on Knives

18 08 2008

According to the BBC, Beckham an other British “footballers” have launched a campaign to decrease knife-related crimes in the UK called It Doesn’t Have to Happen.  Guns have been outlawed; now strides are being made against knives.  I like it.

Feilhaber Update

14 08 2008

Is Benny Denmark-bound? We told you earlier today about reports that Benny Feilhaber was in talks with MLS because he wanted to come back stateside to play, which was contrary to previous reports that Feilhaber was being thoroughly looked over by Aarhus Denmark.

Well, it now appears that the Danish option is proceeding, full-speed ahead and the deal may be complete in just a few hours. Read the rest of this entry »
