MLS Regular Season
Good news coming out of Dynamo camp this morning as striker Omar Cummings, who was acquired by Houston from the Colorado Rapids in December, has returned to training with the first team.
For years, MLS commissioner Don Garber has talked about Major League Soccer being one of the best leagues in the world by 2022. And when he talks about that goal, he almost always prefaces the statement by saying MLS needs to be the best league in the region before it can be one of the best in the world.
Lost in the excitement of the Dynamo's 1-0 win over Santos Laguna Tuesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium was the fact that the win extended the club's home unbeaten streak in all competitions. The streak now stands at 32 games, dating back to a 2-0 loss to the Columbus Crew on June 11, 2011.
Since last night's win was in the CONCACAF Champions League, the Dynamo's home unbeaten streak in MLS play remains at 26 matches. Real Salt Lake holds the all-time record with 29 consecutive MLS home games unbeaten and 34 consecutive home games in all competitions unbeaten.

After 80 minutes of tough, physical play, D.C. United and the Dynamo looked destined for a scoreless deadlock.
Ricardo Clark put his full game on display Saturday night.
The Houston Dynamo midfielder was all over the place in the club’s 2-0 win over D.C. United. That itself is not unusual, but what was more noticeable was the time the midfielder spent up the field.
