US Open Cup 2013: FC Dallas vs. Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

You want a match thread? You got a match thread.

The US Open Cup begins today. After last year's humiliating defeat at the hands of the Charlotte Eagles, FC Dallas will begin their quest for redemption by (hopefully) smashing the Fort Lauderdale Strikers into a fine pulp. With the gaffer taking a strong group of players on the trip, there is no doubt Hyndman is keen on avoiding the early exist from last year.

The Strikers are struggling mightily so far in their spring season, but one should never underestimate the allure of a knockout tournament, where a lucky bounce is all that separates you from elimination at the hands of a minnow.
