Dynamo Daily - July 29, 2010

A daily dose of Dynamo and other newsworthy clips

Well, the All-Star game is over.  Thanks, Houston, for rallying to sell
out Reliant
Stadium!

Even though the Dynamo fans gots to see the All-Star game in
their home town, many of those fans that sold out the stadium were wearing red
instead of orange. 

Steve Davis gives his rundown of the
game
, the players, and how the teams fared against each other.

Take a peek at these player

Bruce Arena said that he was happy with the experience that
he gave some of his younger MLS

, and that the experience itself was more
important that the final score.

Dynamo—and two of them scored.  Reunited
under the All-Star banner
(with Dynamo head and All-Star assistant coach
Dominic Kinnear), here’s what the guys had to say about playing together
against Manchester United.

After scoring against the most popular soccer team in the
world, last night was definitely a night that Brian Ching

Javier
“Chicharito” Hernandez

coming to them, believing that Manchester was far too
superior
for the All-Stars to even have a chance.

The Chronicle also got a chance to talk to Don Garber,
the MLS commissioner, and Tim Leiweke, the president of AEG
.  See what they had to say about the
Dynamo, Houston as a soccer community, and Manchester United.

The negotiations for the Dynamo’s own soccer
stadium
are almost complete!
