The Great Northern Ginger in his natural habitat doing what comes natural to him. All foes should approach with caution.

A view of the Futty Danso hackjob on Calen Carr

A view of the Futty Danso hackjob on @CalenCarr3.

Maybe Chris Penso should be disciplined as well?

1

MLS announced today that Mamadou "Futty" Danso will be suspended one game and fined for the vicious hit to the head he delivered to Calen Carr (who is wearing protective headgear for goodness' sakes!!) late in the 0-0 draw on Tuesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium. Referee Chris Penso not only did not make the call himself, a call that should have been a straight red as Danso tomahawked Carr from behind on a breakaway, denying a clear goal-scoring opportunity, but he actually did not make any call at all on the play. Oh wait, he did make one call. With that violent thug/disgusting cheat Danso faking an injury on the play on the ground, as the ball went out of bounds, he ordered Dynamo to throw the ball to Troy Perkins, surrendering possession. Personally, I think Danso should get one game for the hit and another for the cheating, and Penso should get a suspension somewhere two games and life just for being so pathetic at his job.

OK, everyone, Brad Davis showed up for us and now it's time for us to show up for him. Vote for his goal to be MLS' Goal of the Week. The video at this link here showcases the five contenders this week, and I think the true winner is clearly an Orange one. As I'm writing this, Lee Nguyen's is winning? I'm sorry, but a New England Revolution player just cannot beat a Houston Dynamo player, can he? What kind of bizarro, topsy-turvy universe allows THAT to happen? This aggression must not stand. Vote here. Vote early. Vote often.

Chris Baldwin wrote a wonderful piece on CultureMap (link here) about how BBVA Compass Stadium has turned a Dynamo ticket into THE hot ticket in Houston-town these days, mentioning a list of celebrities both local and national who were there on Saturday. And with the team potentially starting the season with five sell-outs or near-sellouts, I see nothing to argue against what Baldwin wrote, recognizing as he does what we have known all along, the Houston Dynamo are painting the town Orange. Here's my favorite quote from the piece: At a soccer game . . . The game, the event in all of Houston. On a day when the Art Car Parade rolls through H-Town, one of the most beautiful Saturdays we're likely to see in a long while (maybe till October), there is no doubt what's the toughest ticket in town. There is only one place to be, only one phrase that can cause envy, and it's "I'm at the Dynamo game." No, wait, here's my favorite excerpt: The Dynamo's new stadium is not dominated by a scoreboard (a la Cowboys Stadium). It's not dominated by quirks (a la the hill in center field, or the home run train at Minute Maid Park). It's dominated by the action on the field. I encourage you to read the whole piece.

How great would it be to have something like this at or around BBVA Compass Stadium? Destroying the essence of our soon-to-be-departed foe. Houston Dynamo concessions people (or at least food trucks serving crowds in the immediate environment), let's get on it! Stadium flavor: Hex the Next "you might have stabbed a few pretzels into a giant, jersey-wearing voodoo doll doughnut ... or maybe you smashed it with your fist." If Portland can do it...
