FC Dallas isn't the first, nor will it be the last, soccer team to wear a striped or hooped jersey. But we do take notice when new kits roll out with the horizontal stripes.
Back in April, we weren't the only ones to notice the similarities between the new U.S. Men's National Team jerseys and FCD's.
SMU caught our attention on Wednesday when they unveiled their new red and blue hooped jerseys on Facebook. Red & blue are, of course, FCD's colors and SMU's as well.
So which look do you like the best? FCD? USMNT? SMU?
FC Dallas' surge is getting noticed in the soccer world this week and David Ferreira is front and center in media coverage. The MLS Player of the Week spoke with ESPN's Jeff Carlisle and opened up about the difficulty of his lengthy rehab and his concerns about returning to the pitch. The entire piece is worth a read, but here's an excerpt:
"Definitely there were moments I thought that [I wouldn't return]," Ferreira said. "I was committed during all my therapy sessions, but then I injured myself again and nothing resulted quickly. The support of my family was fundamental and everyone as well as the group encouraged me and strengthened to keep looking forward. Thank God things are going well, and let's hope going forward there are no injuries and I can enjoy many more years of soccer."
Dale Hansen showed off quite the souvenir on Tuesday night's 6 p.m. newscast on Ch. 8. He recently attended a Rod Stewart concert at WinStar World Casino and a viewer taped him catching a soccer ball kicked into the crowd by the famous singer. That signed ball - which he showed on air - is an FC Dallas soccer ball autographed by Stewart. Watch the video from the newscast:
George John chatted with Gina Miller on Tuesday's edition of The Fan Sports Show on TXA21. The defender discussed the team's current winning streak and also fielded some questions about his Greek heritage.
It’s amazing what having your best player fit and healthy can do. David Ferreira may very well be the most important player in the league, and not just because he’s amazing in his own right, but because of how much better he makes guys like Brek Shea and Fabián Castillo.
