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.

Ricardo Villar was featured in a story on a big sporting website in Brazil today. You'll want to translate the story to read it since it's written in Portuguese. In it Villar discusses the growth of MLS in the U.S. and the challenge youngsters in Brazil face to follow their sports dreams while also trying to get an education.

The mysterious panel of voters who determine the MLS Power Rankings finally came to their senses this week. After having FCD ranked No. 11 during the preseason, the club jumped six spots (largest move of the week) to No. 5 in the Week One rankings. Here's what they had to say:

70 minutes of comprehensive dominance followed by 20 minutes of holding on for dear life. That’s probably not the way that Schellas Hyndman drew it up, but it was good enough for three points against New York. They’ll need to be more clinical to stay with the West's heavies, though.
