Mark Followill will make his debut as FC Dallas play-by-play man this Sunday vs. Sporting Kansas City. The Dallas Morning News spoke with him about his new assignment. Here's an excerpt:


Followill is the primary TV play-by-play man for FCD games, but only when games don’t conflict with Mavericks games. FCD’s game is in Kansas City, and since the Mavericks don’t play Sunday and Monday, the veteran broadcaster plans to call Sunday’s game alongside former Dallas Burn player Brian Dunseth.

“I’m really, really excited about it,” Followill said. “Being on the broadcast is a great honor. It’s an opportunity for me to expand my own professional horizons, so I think it’s just going to be great all around.”

He has a history with the Dallas franchise, serving as the public address announcer for the Burn during their time at the Cotton Bowl and also as a fill-in PA announcer for FCD the last few years.

The FC Dallas reserves are in the Denver area for a match against the Colorado Rapids reserves today at 1 p.m. CT. We'll provide updates during the match via Twitter (@FCDallas) and have a recap posted on the website sometime after the match. 

Last week the FCD reserves opened the season with a 3-1 win over Real Salt Lake inside FC Dallas Stadium. Bryan Leyva, Luis Perea and Jonathan Top netted goals for FCD.

The secretive group of voters who determine the MLS Power Rankings have dropped FCD one spot in the Week Two rankings. FCD dropped from No. 5 to No. 6 after its draw with Portland over the weekend. But the comments were, well, rather complementary:

Any MLS fan who's watched CONCACAF play over the past decade has hoped, at some point, that Blas Pérez would land in the league. It took a little longer than most wanted, but he's lived up to every expectation in his first two appearances with Dallas.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Lucky Limerick Giveaway. It was fun to see all the submissions that came in. Here are the winners, who each get two tickets to Saturday's St. Patrick's Day match vs Portland.


Christopher Young:

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!


Nathan Pettijohn:

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


Sheila Esmaili-Doki:

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


Chase Rose:

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.


Evan Engwall:

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.
