This weekend, you'll notice a streak of black on the Dynamo's orange and white kits as they face the Vancouver Whitecaps.
All Dynamo players and coaches, along with teams around the league, will be wearing a black armband on Saturday in honor of former MLS player Shawn Kuykendall, who recently passed away after his battle with an extremely rare form of Thymic Carcinoma. Shawn's wish was that his story could in some way help future cancer patients, specifically those fighting pediatric cancer. Thus, The Kuykenstrong Foundation was created to help the families of pediatric cancer patients.
The black armbands, which feature The Kuykenstrong Foundation and Soccer Kicks Cancer logos, recognize Shawn and this enduring legacy that he leaves behind.
Who will survive the battle of unbeatens in Vancouver on Saturday? Can the defense keep their clean sheet streak alive? Another goal for Bruin? Eddie Robinson previews the showdown.

The NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament picks up full steam this weekend, and once again offices become less efficient as everyone tracks their brackets through March and April. The Dynamo locker room is no different, as North Carolina grad Corey Ashe has reportedly put together a team bracket challenge. We caught up with a few of the participants to see who they've got going to the Final Four in Arlington (champion in italics).
Corey Ashe: Florida, Arizona, Michigan St., Michigan
Will Bruin: Florida, Arizona, Michigan St., Louisville
Anthony Arena: Kansas, Arizona, Michigan St., Wichita St.
Mark Sherrod: Kansas, Wisconsin, UConn, Louisville
Tony Cascio: Florida, Arizona, Virginia, Louisville
AJ Cochran: Florida, Arizona, Michigan St., Duke
Tyler Deric: Florida, Arizona, Michigan St., Duke
Eric Brunner: Florida, Arizona, Iowa St., Louisville
Looks like the players are pretty heavy on Florida winning it all. Surprisingly, there wasn't much alma mater bias in their Final Four picks. Ashe and fellow UNC alum Tyler Deric have the Tar Heels (No. 6 in East Region) falling before the national semifinals, while Eric Brunner expressed disappointment in Ohio St. already bowing out in an upset loss to Dayton. Tony Cascio (UConn) and AJ Cochran (Wisconsin) didn't put their schools in the Final Four either, but apparently Mark Sherrod has more faith in their teams. Our condolences do go out to Will Bruin and Anthony Arena as neither Indiana nor Wake Forest reached the Big Dance this year. Perhaps their absence will allow a little more objectivity in their picks.
How do your picks line up with the players'?
