Kyle Bekker discusses his first week with Dallas |

The FCD newcomer is enjoying his new home so far. Lets hope he can translate those positive vibes into some quality work this year.

You can't build a stadium overnight he says. Yeah not sh*t. My gut still tells me this one doesn't happen but we'll certainly see.

MLS sells KickTV to Copa90 | VideoInk
