Multimedia Manager Aaron Griffin with another one of his fantastic recap videos, this one is titled Texas Derby Supremacy:
Our brand new ShopFCDallas.com Scarf of the Month program has been an overwhelming success with quick sellouts of both March and April's editions.
However, after Saturday's historic win in Houston, we knew we'd have to create a second run of our popular "Come and Take It" scarf, but with a little twist.
Pre-order your "FC Dallas 4, Houston Dynamo 1 "Come and Take It" April Scarf of the Month today! Since the scarves are being special ordered, it will be at least six weeks before they arrive in Frisco and this one-time VERY limited edition order will not be made again. Our first run sold out in less than 24 hours so don't waste any time in pre-ordering yours today because when they're gone, they're gone.
April's exclusive scarf is a nod to Texas history and the Texas Derby (presented by Novo Nordisk).One side of the scarf features the "Come and Take It" slogan that was used during the Texas Revolution of 1835 and is used today to dare the Dynamo to try and reclaim El Capitan which comes together when the scarf is draped around the neck of an FC Dallas fan. On the other side is the "FC Dallas 4 Houston Dynamo 1" scoreline from Saturday's game.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a pre-sale and scarves will not be available for in-store pickup/shipping for six-eight weeks.
Chris Seitz has been nominated for MLS Save of the Week for his 82nd minute penalty kick save on Oscar Boniek Garcia.
Seitz's save was the cherry on top of the 4-1 Texas Derby win and Chris has been huge for FC Dallas all year. Seitz is now 10-3-3 in MLS/USOC dating back to the start of 2013 with a very respectable 1.25 goals against average.
Show your love for his early-season form and vote Seitzy for Save of the Week!

Recently on one weekday morning, Bubble Soccer USA and FOX4 stopped by Toyota Stadium with the invitation for anyone in the office who was free to come down and play some bubble soccer(tough life, I know). I couldn't pass up the opportunity and we played about an hour of the new craze.
I will echo the comments in the video that it is one of the toughest workouts out there. While getting hit surprisingly doesn't hurt at all, you will wake up the next morning very sore as you work pretty much every muscle in your body trying to play soccer while holding up a relatively heavy balloon while constantly watching your periphery to make sure you don't get destroyed.
I highly recommend bubble soccer to anyone who has a chance to play. Here's Richard Ray's report:
