Thanks to everyone who came out for the first Party at the Pubs watch party for 2012. We easily gave away the MLS pint glasses to the first 100 people and had a standing room crowd inside The Allen Wickers. Our next Party at the Pubs is Saturday, April 28 at Trinity Hall in Dallas when FCD travels west to face LA Galaxy.

Dallas ‘Til I Die I loudly scream
The Timbers are next for us to ream
They don’t stand a chance
And won’t win this dance
As we cut down their entire team
Art & Trinity Cantu:
Uncle Lamar keeps a watchful eye,
So come on in don't be shy,
Red, White, and Blue are our colors,
United We Stand next to our sisters and brothers,
Remember that we are Dallas 'Til I Die!
New York tried to create a disaster
Goals from Loyd and Villar came much faster
Ugo shut down Henry
For the whole crowd to see
And they sent those old Bulls to their pasture
Kevin Hartman and Matt Hedges
Keep FC Dallas fans on the edges
Of their bright crimson seats
With concession stand treats
Like pretzels and potato wedges
Doris & Jon Reutinger:
There once was a man in the goal
Kevin, his name - what control
El gato they say
Could stop balls any day
Few goals scored with him on patrol
Dallas will put excellence on display,
They need no luck to other teams' dismay.
Though the Irish within will inspire fight
The red and the blue will make the score right
It is Portland who will timber today.
There is a goalkeeper from Dallas,
Whose opponents shoot at him with malice.
But their shots he will save
And to the fans he will wave
As he raises the MLS Cup like a chalice.
