Their dreams of qualifying for a fifth consecutive postseason since moving to Texas may be long dead, but the Houston Dynamo are not willing to mail in the remainder of their 2010 schedule.

The Houston Dynamo got some good news this week, as both Brian Ching and Anthony Obodai returned to practice and seem likely to be available for Saturday night’s match against the San Jose Earthquakes.

Houston will still be shorthanded, however, as midfielder Geoff Cameron and forward Joseph Ngwenya sit out Saturday’s match due to red-card suspensions. Sammy Appiah (back) and Tally Hall (ankle) both did not travel with the team to San Jose due to injury.

Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, right? Unless you’re the crew from Apollo 13, no one ever gets remembered for getting “almost there.”

Still, almost-history is a funny thing. Take away the penalty-kick heroics by Nick Rimando in last year’s Eastern Conference final, and perhaps make sure someone paid their electric bill in LA during last year’s Western final, and we might have been talking about the Chicago Fire or Houston Dynamo defending their MLS Cup title this fall.

Don’t look now, but forward Dominic Oduro is pushing to become the first Dynamo player not named Brian Ching to lead the club in scoring.

Ching leads Houston with MLS goals in 2010, but Oduro has netted seven in all competitions to tie Ching for the overall lead, with Oduro and Brad Davis each sitting on five MLS goals with two games remaining in the regular season. Oduro has been decidedly hotter of late, scoring three goals in his last four games heading into a matchup on the road against San Jose on Saturday night.

Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron was apologetic after he picked up a red card during Sunday night's match. Cameron will wait to hear from the MLS Disciplinary Committee as to whether he will be suspended any additional games.

Dynamo midfielder Geoff Cameron has left the remainder of his 2010 season in the hands of the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

In the waning minutes of Houston’s 2-1 loss to New England on Sunday, Cameron took out his frustration with a shove to Revs midfielder Pat Phelan and was ejected. He will miss the Dynamo’s trip to San Jose on Saturday for their penultimate game this season, and his year may end prematurely if further disciplinary action is taken.
