The Dynamo will look to break a six-game MLS winless streak tomorrow night, when they take on the Columbus Crew for the second time in two weeks. The writers at Goal.com predict a win for the Crew. Let's hope they are wrong.

HoustonDynamo.com continues its coverage of the SUM U-17 Cup with a preview of Group C and Group D. Games kick off at 6:30 tonight at Centennial Park.

Dynamo players are excited about the addition of Steve Ralston to the Dynamo coaching staff.

Houston will continue its SuperLiga run when they host Monarcas Morelia on August 5 at 7 p.m. in the semifinals. 

The 2010 AT&T MLS All-Star jersey was unveiled yesterday. Dominic Kinnear, who will assist Bruce Arena with the All-Star training sessions, is hopeful that Brian Ching and Brad Davis will start against Manchester United.

SI.com columnist Steve Davis hands out his midseason awards and previews this weekend's games.

The Houston Press wonders why Richard Justice has the Dynamo ranked so low in his rankings of Houston teams and their popularity, when in fact they are the only Houston team to have won anything recently.

One of the highlights of All-Star Week is the Kicking and Screening Film Festival that will take place at the Angelika Film Center on Sunday.

Thierry Henry made his Red Bulls debut last night in their 2-1 loss to Tottenham in the Barclays New York Challenge. Henry made headlines though for scoring the Red Bulls lone goal, as well as taking the PATH train to the stadium. I wonder if we'll see him on the Light Rail on July 31.

With the All-Star game coming up, many of the MLS All-Stars are recognizing this special occasion by personalizing their own Adidas cleats to wear for the match.
