Houston Dynamo defender Craig Waibel doesn’t take himself too seriously. Waibel has a lengthy series of Chuck Norris-style jokes that light up internet message boards with classics like ‘Craig Waibel's calendar goes straight from March 31 to April 2’, ‘No one fools Craig Waibel,’ or his personal favorite, ‘Mr. T pities himself when he’s around Craig Waibel.’ He has created a cult-like following in Houston, and it’s this following that has helped Waibel push a local movement that is quickly gaining steam.

If Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear were to list each of his goals for Saturday night’s match against CD Águila, the team likely accomplished all of them: raise money for charity, win, stay injury-free, get some experience for some of his younger players, and continue to evaluate the team’s three trialists in a competitive game.

Kinnear was clearly pleased with the way his team performed. In addition to posting a shutout and having four different players score goals, the Dynamo pressed in the second half when they could have easily chosen to sit on their lead.

HD: What is your favorite restaurant in Houston?
CA: My favorite restaurant in Houston is probably Chipotle. I usually
get a chicken burrito.

HD: What was your favorite TV show when you were a kid?
CA: My favorite TV show growing up was Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
You can’t go wrong with that.

Welcome to edition No. 6 of my weekly blog. It appears on the
new every Monday.

What’s going on and where do we go from here?
I’m sure that’s what you’re thinking, and that’s fair given the recent results.

all, we are not used to going through such difficult times. It’s been
uncharacteristic, unusual, and rough.

The Houston Dynamo were hoping to find some momentum entering the World
Cup break. Unfortunately for them, they have
found the wrong kind of momentum, as the Dynamo lost their third consecutive
game in falling to the LA Galaxy 4-1 on Saturday.
