The Dynamo will take on FC Dallas tonight
for the rights to El Capitán. Tonight’s match will be the second in a stretch
of four matches in 13 days for Houston. After a crucial mistake in FC Dallas’s 1-1
tie to New England on Saturday, goalkeeper
Dario Sala could find his starting spot in
jeopardy
tonight.

Dynamo players look to continue
the momentum
built after their 3-0 win against Kansas City. With the win against the Wizards, Houston
surged to fourth in MLSsoccer.com’s
weekly power rankings
.

Although he is healthy enough to take the field as a substitute
tonight, it is unlikely
Brian Ching will play against FC Dallas. Ching still hopes
to get named
to Bob Bradley’s 30-man provisional roster next Tuesday. Ching also acknowledged that after the 2010
World Cup, he is likely to retire from international competitions.

Geoff Cameron was touched
by the fans' support
at the game on Saturday. For those unaware, the white “No. 20”
placards held up in the 21st minute were in honor of Cameron,
who is out at least four months with an injury sustained against the Chicago
Fire. Cameron spoke
in-depth
with Glenn Davis about the injury and the recovery process.

Local business owners envision an economic
boom
when the new Dynamo stadium is built downtown.  The Dynamo are one step closer to the
construction of the stadium after choosing an architect
and project manager
for the stadium development.

With two MLS Cup titles and one Supporters' Shield under his
belt, Dominic Kinnear is considered one of the top football managers in
the world.

The June 10 friendly against the Laredo Heat will prove to
be a valuable
opportunity
for players such as Danny Cruz to impress the Dynamo coaching
staff.

Roughly six weeks after a new CBA was reached between MLS
and the MLSPU, the deal was officially
ratified
. Brian Straus sat
down
with Executive VP-Player Relations and Competitions Todd Durbin and
Director of Communications Will Kuhns to discuss the deal.

The creator of this year’s World Cup anthem, “Wavin’ Flag”
sat down for a Q&A
with Sports Illustrated columnist Grant Wahl.
