The term “milestone” gets passed around like a collection plate when
it comes to pro sports. Every week it seems as if some player has
reached some new massive number in the stats or some team has surpassed a
previous high. As such, it’s often hard to know what the big deals are
in our game.

Jeff Cunningham reaching career goal No. 134? A big deal. Kevin
Hartman crossing 100 career shutouts on top of an MLS record 169
victories? Huge deal – those might never be surpassed.

The scene was set for the Houston Dynamo to take their first road win of the season. They were up 1-0 coming out of halftime and had played with a man advantage since the 11th minute. But in the second half, for Houston things changed for the worse.

Two second-half penalty kicks by the short-handed Crew’s Andres Mendoza put Columbus ahead late, but Houston’s Calen Carr capped a bizarre game with a goal just minutes from time as the teams played to a 2-2 draw in Crew Stadium on Wednesday.

The Houston Dynamo’s list of distractions is lengthy heading into
Wednesday night’s match against the Columbus Crew (6:30 p.m., KHOU 11.2, FOX Sports Houston, KPRC 950, La Ranchera 850).

With three games in one week, the Houston Dynamo were expecting their
depth to be tested, but certainly not by the circumstances that
currently face the forward corps.

The Houston Dynamo endured a lengthy day of travel on Sunday, winding up in Columbus rather than Houston after an odyssey of more than 15 hours. Having left the hotel in Kansas City at 8 a.m. CT, the Dynamo did not
get their entire travel party to Columbus - site of Wednesday's match against the Eastern Conference co-leaders, the Crew - until well after midnight ET.

A slow start and an ill-advised red card doomed the Houston Dynamo in
a crucial matchup against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday and left
head coach Dominic Kinnear with easy answers as to what went wrong in
yet another road loss this season.

Teal Bunbury scored in the ninth minute and Carlo Costly put the Dynamo (8-9-11) in a deeper hole with a red card in the 64th minute of the loss, which dropped Houston to 0-6-8 away from home this season.

Houston Dynamo fell 3-0 to Sporting Kansas City Saturday afternoon, recovering
from a slow start only to see a potential tying shot hit the post and suffer a
second-half red card. Kansas City added two goals with the Dynamo down to 10
players to move five points clear of Houston in the Eastern Conference
