buy a house during the 2009 campaign. Then came that fateful June day

Dynamo forward Dominic Oduro took some time after practice on Wednesday to
answer a few questions from HoustonDynamo.com about his life, on and off the
field.

What is your favorite thing about the city of Houston?

I love the heat. It’s just like back home. Sometimes it’s
really hot, but I don’t mind it.

What is your least favorite thing?

The downtown area. All these other cities have thriving
downtowns with restaurants and stuff, but here in Houston it’s mostly businesses.

A week after defeating the Chicago Fire for their first MLS victory in almost three months, the Dynamo found themselves down a goal and a man within 10 minutes against the Colorado Rapids last Saturday en route to 3-0 road loss which stunted any momentum the team seemed to be building.
