Preseason is a time for many things. It's a time for team bonding, a time for team pranks and for some people a time to prepare for the upcoming season. But for one player, this year's preseason became so much more.
In an unexpected turn of events today, Dynamo defender Warren Creavalle, a player who pundits expect to make huge strides in 2012, found himself trapped in the unlikeliest of places. In case you missed it, here is the breakdown of this afternoon's events.
