We're nearing the end of 2014 and what a year it was. FC Dallas with Oscar Pareja at the helm set or tied a number of team records, reached the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup semifinals and went undefeated through three games in the MLS Cup Playoffs falling to Supporter's Shield winners Seattle Sounders FC on away goals.
2015 is going to be one of the biggest years in team history, but before we turn the page, let's have some fun and see how much you remember from 2014.
Here's our year-end quiz, take it and see how you stack up against the rest of the #DTID nation. Good luck!
Mark your calendars! The date has been set for Cocktails and Cleats 2015 presented by Chase and the annual season kickoff event is returning to F.I.G. in downtown Dallas.
Details about the event will be announced in the coming months, but if last year is any indication (video below) it's sure to be a good time!

Throughout the last month, IndyCar driver Townsend Bell and Continental Tire have challenged MLS players in a special series called "What'Cha Got?"
The players drive a special tricked out Lamborghini looking to set the quickest time. The winner of the competition will actually get to keep the special Lambo for an entire year.
The series has aired on ESPNFC on Sunday nights and given the fact that FCD fans packed Toyota Stadium last night for our 1-1 Western Conference semifinal draw against Seattle, plenty of you probably missed last night's segment during which center back Stephen Keel took the What'Cha Got challenge.
Never fear, we've got the segment right here. We won't spoil anything except to say cup holders definitely play a huge part in Stephen Keel's car decisions.
FC Dallas survived Wednesday's knockout round match against Vancouver, earning a two-legged playoff against top-seeded Seattle Sounders FC beginning on Sunday night at 8:00PM at Toyota STadium. Here are the 10 things you need to know before heading to the stadium.
1. We are declaring it #RedSunday across DFW. This means everyone coming to Toyota Stadium on Sunday night must wear red in support of FC Dallas. Let's turn Toyota Stadium into a sea of red that sends the Sounders packing.
2. Our honorary Lamar Hunt Statue scarfer on Sunday night will be 1310 The Ticket's own Corby Davidson from The Hardline. Be sure to join us on the north concourse at 7:25 for that ceremony.
3. ARRIVE EARLY on Sunday as our first 10,000 fans will receive #RedForGlory scarves courtesy of Chase & Toyota. If you received one on Wednesday, we encourage you to bring it back Sunday so we can have one in the hands of every single person in the stadium.
4. Do the words "two-legged" game, "away goals" or "extra time" confuse you? Take a read of our playoff rules primer explaining everything about how FC Dallas can advance to the next round.
6. Sunday's match kicks off just after 8:00PM and is live nationally on ESPN2 with Adrian Healey, Taylor Twellman & Alexi Lalas. You can also catch the match on 100.7FM with Steve Davis & 1270AM with Carlos Alvarado & Rafa Calderon. Additionally, when driving home from the stadium, 100.7FM now has a post-game show so be sure to turn that on during the drive home.
8. It's going to be absolutely gorgeous on Sunday with a high of 70 and a low of 55. With the 8:00PM kickoff and the Cowboys playing at 12:00PM, we expect a huge crowd of tailgaters getting ready for Sunday's big playoff game.
9. Since you're all going to be at the stadium, set your DVR to record Stephen Keel's appearance on Whatcha Got MLS? It's a special segment on ESPNFC directly after our game in which Keel races a Lambo against other MLS players to potentially win the car. Check it out!
10. If you don't have tickets yet, there are still some available here.
