I thought it would be a good idea to write a special edition

Clark and allocation money.

The Houston Dynamo are clearly building for a better 2011, swinging a deal on Wednesday with the Colorado Rapids, who are gunning for a deep postseason run in 2010.

The two Western Conference foes swapped wingers on the last day before the MLS roster freeze on Wednesday, with the Rapids picking up veteran midfielder Brian Mullan and the Dynamo landing 26-year-old Colin Clark and allocation money in the deal. Colorado also gets a fourth-round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.

With Houston off this past weekend, Dynamo players were left scoreboard-watching. And the results were both good and bad for the team.

The good news for Dynamo players and fans is that most of the results with playoff implications fell Houston’s way, with only the San Jose Earthquakes getting a point. The bad news is that the team slipped further down the standings and now sits as the second-worst team in the league.

Dynamo midfielder Anthony Obodai underwent surgery last week to repair a torn meniscus and is out indefinitely, head coach Dominic Kinnear announced on Monday following Houston's training session.

Athletic trainer Theron Enns confirmed that Obodai had surgery to repair a tear to the medial meniscus in his left knee but did not put a timetable on his return.

Despite long odds, Dynamo push forward

HOUSTON – After falling last weekend to the San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo players returned to practice this week vowing to push on despite some tough odds at reaching the postseason.

“We played some of our best football and we were very unfortunate not to come away with three points,” midfielder Danny Cruz said. “However, we still have a chance, and by no means are we out until someone tells us we are mathematically out. If it takes seven wins, we ... start [with the next game] and hope to make something happen.”

Davis' rare header surprised even himself

Brian Ching's bicycle kick is still the likely frontrunner for Houston Dynamo Goal of the Year, but Brad Davis notched his own entry last week with his header against the San Jose Earthquakes.

The goal itself was not particularly great because of the grace or athleticism shown by Davis on the play. Brian Mullan’s assist on the goal was much more impressive in that department. The midfielder beat his man, ripped a shot on goal that was blocked back to him, and quickly jumped in the air for a left-footed cross back to Davis.

During a long year, it is always important to have distractions to take the mind off the
frustrations of a regular nine-to-five job. For the second year now, Dynamo players can focus some of their
competitiveness off the field in the team’s fantasy football league.
