Some of the best theater in sports comes from coaches or managers that don’t like each other.

A heated exchange on the benches, a contentious handshake – or lack thereof – draws plenty of eyes and even more commentary.

Orlando City SC will bring a blend of the familiar and the unknown when they face the Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium on Friday (6 p.m. CT; TICKETS).

They may be newcomers to MLS, playing only their second game in the league, but the Dynamo met them less than two weeks ago in the Carolina Challenge Cup. The head coaches know each other well. And Orlando’s roster includes a couple of ex-Houston players and one of the most famous names in world soccer, Brazilian midfielder Kaká (above).

Tyler Deric was sure he was going to be cut.

The Homegrown goalkeeper had just finished a trying rookie year in Houston, and was convinced his first season with the Dynamo would be his last as he walked into his 2009 exit interview with then-head coach Dominic Kinnear.
