Happy New Year everyone! It's good to be back on the blog after the break. Hope everyone has a great 2015.
Thinking about going on a road trip to an FC Dallas game(s)? Here are a few to mark down on your calendar.
April 4 - Portland Timbers
Ever been to Portland? I haven't, but I'd like to. Not only for the weirdness of Portland and the people there, but to be in that stadium and that atmosphere. To me, a supporter of Liverpool, Portland's stadium seems like the Anfield of the US. That's a place I'd like to visit.
May 1 - Houston Dynamo
I think this one is self-explanatory. We play the Dynamo three (!!!) times every year now. This year, we get two games at home and one away. You can't miss this one. If you are going to take a road trip, this is the game to go to.
May 29 or September 18 - Sporting Kansas City
Another rival FCD gets to play three times a year. You get two chances to make the trip this year. FCD plays SKC in May and in September. A lot like Portland, the atmosphere at Sporting Park is one of the best in MLS. Plus, you get to see USMNTers Matt Besler and Graham Zusi.
July 11 - Orlando City SC
The new MLS club has made a big splash in the offseason adding players like Kaka, Amobi Okugo, and oh yeah, that one guy Brek Shea. Are you and the family wanting to take a vacation this summer? Well, Orlando is just the place for you. You get to see FC Dallas play on vacation! Oh, and I guess you could go to Disney World. I hear people like that place.
August 2 - Chicago Fire
Last on my list is Chicago. I went to Chicago for the first time this past summer and saw Liverpool play at Soldier Field. Chicago is now my favorite place outside of Dallas. This is another vacation spot. Plus, you get to see FC Dallas play!
