You see that date in the top left corner of this blog post? It's the first day of August, guys. And that means it's time for a brand spankin' new Scarf of the Month!
We decided to mix things up this month by going with blue as the predominant color on August's scarf. "Dallas 'Til I Die" is sewn on one side between two FCD shields while the other side reads "FC Dallas" between two #DTID hashtags.
It's simple, yet exquisite. And this month we're sweetening the deal with free shipping on orders of $50 or more (limited-time only). So get yours today!

Here are your match highlights from FC Dallas' 2-1 Fourth of July win over the Philadelphia Union:
The USMNT survived the World Cup's Group of Death.
They've got a do-or-die match against Belgium this afternoon in the final game of the Round of 16. They played an absolutely thrilling match against Belgium in the Round of 16 that saw goalkeeper and American Hero Tim Howard play out of his ever-loving mind and make a World Cup-record 16 saves in one match. And to top it all off, the Fourth of July is this Friday.
What better time than now to release our patriotic-as-hell July Scarf of the Month?
The scarf features a stars and stripes pattern on one side, with "ONE NATION" emblazoned on the reverse side between two FC Dallas shields.
I would write more, but let's be honest, this baby's gonna sell itself and I've got some games to watch.
UPDATE (11:45 p.m.): Major League Soccer has confirmed that the previously postponed MLS match between the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas is now rescheduled for Sunday, June 29 at 1:00 p.m. CT at Columbus Crew Stadium.
Saturday night's match between the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas has been postponed due to extenuating circumstances. The match was scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday, June 28, but was delayed for more than an hour due to severe weather in the vicinity of Crew Stadium. The postponement was announced at 8:12 p.m. CT.
From the Columbus Crew's official statement:
Prior to the Major League Soccer match between the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas on Saturday, June 28, first responders were called to Crew Stadium to address an incident surrounding the inclement weather that delayed tonight’s contest. Due to these extenuating circumstances, the match was postponed. During tonight’s thunderstorm that caused the severe weather delay, an individual was injured during the inclement weather and was transported to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. No other information surrounding the incident is known at this time.
Details of the rescheduled match will be announced as soon as they are made available.
After predicting five matches correctly in eight tries through the group stage of the World Cup, Tex Hopper (right) is about to put in some overtime as the knockout rounds begin on Saturday. That's because the Mean Green Prediction Machine (yes, it's a thing) will be predicting every single match of the tournament from here on out.
Which means the red-hot fire belly toad will be pulling double duty on match days through the quarterfinals. Don't worry, he'll be fairly compensated for his services (It's about to rain crickets in that aquarium). Check out the Toad to Brazil page to see Hopper's full prediction schedule and don't miss his live predictions on YouTube every World Cup match day at 10am CT!

The calendar has turned and that means it's time to release the next edition in our Scarf of the Month line. With the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicking off this month, naturally June's scarf has a World Cup theme.
The limited-edition scarf shows your support for club and country all at the same time. One side displays "USA" and "FC Dallas" in red, white and blue - the colors of the USMNT and FCD - while the reverse side reads, "One Heart, Two Teams" in yellow, green and blue - the colors of World Cup host nation, Brazil.
This is sure to be one of our fastest-selling scarves of the year, so order yours today before they sell out!
