Introducing Big D After Dark

When the lights go dim, we go live! Check out our new live show after every game.

MLS: LA Galaxy at FC Dallas Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Starting this season, a few Big D soccer contributors follow every game by jumping on to a live video feed to break down, discuss, and react to the latest FC Dallas result. We call it Big D After Dark for those precious, passionate conversations after another weekend of action in Major League Soccer. This is a purely fun affair - where you will undoubtedly get technological malfunctions and muted mics in addition to some scorching hot takes that will melt your face. And you’ll get info, lots and lots of info.

And we want you to be a part of it!

Right now, Big D After Dark begins roughly an hour after the game finishes. We are still adjusting that time a bit, as we don’t want to interfere with what Gina Miller and Carter Baum do over on the official FC Dallas channel, so this means you should go camp out on our Facebook page and wait for the fireworks to begin.

Right now, we have three regular contributors who join us:

Ben Lyon is @byrdturgler. He contributes a weekly fantasy column and other imaginative shock pieces that percolate the mind and soul. If we can convince him to use a camera, we’ll see his face on the feed eventually.

Jose Carmona is @elchicocarmona. He writes the weekly player ratings and offers us plenty of juicy rumors from around the soccer world pertaining to FC Dallas players. He joins us from the frozen upper midwest.

I’m Nathan Hill (@nathanjhill), and I try to keep the conversation flowing, mash a few buttons, and mispronounce names. I’ll offer my perspective along with a clue or two on how I am leaning with my weekly Workhorse of the Week column.

But you can expect other Big D writers and friends to pop in from time to time as we get this thing going.

Best of all, you will be included. If you post a comment, we’ll throw your comment on to the feed so you can have your insight or question picked apart by our “personalities”.

Once again, follow Big D Soccer on Facebook if you haven’t already:

We expect to go live this coming Saturday after Dallas plays Columbus around 5 PM EST/4 PM CST.

Let’s make this little show and conversation grow, so if you have ideas or want to help spread the word, please share or post in the comments below.
