ESPN.com's Wayne Drehs and Outside The Lines recently spent some time with FC Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz to chronicle the 'keeper's decision to donate bone marrow. Seitz registered to become a donor with a bone marrow center called DKMS four years ago when he was with Real Salt Lake. When he received an email from the organization letting him know that they'd found a match in August, Seitz made a difficult decision to help save a total stranger.

FRISCO -- FC Dallas had its only full training session of the week Thursday.

Coach Schellas Hyndman wants to make sure his players are rested and as healthy as possible going into the final two regular season matches of the season.

“When you get fatigued it’s not just a physical thing, it’s a mental thing. Since January 15 we’ve been going at it,” Hyndman said.

It’s been a light week for the first team. FCD traveled back from Los Angeles on Monday and had Tuesday off. Wednesday the Reserves played Chicago while the starters had a light recovery session.

Hyndman is giving the entire squad off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are no MLS matches this weekend due to World Cup qualifying.

“These days off will be tremendous for the guys to recover,” Hyndman said.

FC Dallas will begin preparing on Monday for its nationally televised match at Seattle on Sunday, Oct. 21 (8 p.m. CT on ESPN).

Admission to College Night is only $15 and includes a ticket to the match, an exclusive College Night t-shirt (pictured right), a hot dog, and a beer or soda. Tickets purchased on the day of game are $20.

Secure your ticket to the party here. All purchasers must show a valid College I.D. at the special VIP check-in located at the northwest corner of the stadium.
