Ever since the Houston Dynamo came on the scene, I've never really had a problem with them. In fact, I kinda like Houston and the Dynamo. Here's why:
The color truly stands out and makes every game feel like a construction zone. Construction is good, it means progress for America. You're not against America, are you?
I didn't think so.
Everybody loves a coach with an accent. It makes them seem as if they know more about the game than you do.
I feel so inferior about my own soccer language and I don't even listen to what he said.
In 2007, the MLS released anthems for every single team and most of them were horrible. Houston was able to get Mike Jones on board, however, leading to this:
"Long as I got my fan clubs, y'all can't harm me,
El Batallon and the Texian Army"
That's pretty awesome. (281) 330-8004.
In my world, kicking a ball with your left foot is next to impossible. The fact that Brad can do it on a consistent basis leaves me in a permanent state of awe. Also, Brad Davis used to follow me on Twitter.
I think the handler of Brad's account found out I wasn't a Dynamo fan.
"Come back, Brad! I can change!"
2006 - Beat New England Revolution in the MLS Cup (Ha ha)
2007 - Beat New England in the MLS Cup after New England eliminated New York in the Conference Semifinals (Ha ha)
2008 - Lost to the New York Red Bulls giving the club its only MLS Cup appearance
2012 - Beat D.C. United in Conference Finals after D.C. eliminated New York in the Conference Semifinals
2013 - Beat New York in Conference Semifinals (although I'd argue the Red Bulls lost that one more than Houston won it, but I digress)
So that's 4 good playoff things to 1 bad playoff thing. I can live with that.
Houston isn't so bad. I hope they lose tomorrow, but they're not so bad.
