The Houston
Dynamo announced yesterday that proceeds from Saturday’s Dynamo Charities Cup
match will benefit victims of the oil
spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Houston will also wear their white jerseys at
home this Saturday for just the second time ever.

The Dynamo braved the heat again today,
working hard in preparation for Saturday’s match against Aguila.

The kids at
the Residential Camp in San Antonio
got a special treat when Dominic
Oduro visited to give his help teaching some strategies and giving advice on
techniques. Oduro also found time to talk with HoustonDynamo.com about the
current state of the Dynamo as well as Ghana’s chances in the World Cup.

Check out 5 minutes with … Corey Ashe to
learn who Corey admired as a kid and which sport he would have played had he
not played soccer.

The Dynamo will
host a U.S. Open Cup game for the first
time since 2006. The team will play on June 29 against the winner of the
Miami/Tampa bay game at a location to be determined.

Congrats to
Ashley Cochrane, wife of Dynamo defender Ryan Cochrane, who was named head cheerleading coach for
a squad that includes St. Agnes, Incarnate Word and Duchesne.

Tim Howard gives his thoughts on Slovenia
and talks about his health after taking a cleat to the ribs in USA’s opening match against England.

Peter King of
Sports Illustrated checks in with his
latest Postcard from Johannesburg and insists
the World Cup should be on every sporting bucket list.

Thanks to
all the fans who came out to Hooters today for the Mexico-France viewing party.
Don’t forget to come to Lucky’s Pub tomorrow morning to
watch the United States take
on Slovenia!
