Rocky Harris, Senior Vice President of the Houston Dynamo, and his marketing staff must be having a blast right now. First, it was their fantastic billboard in Dallas on the highway to Pizza Hut Park, FC Dallas' stadium. And now the team has taken it a step further and produced a video (after the jump) comparing the two cities.
Even though the Houston Dynamo don't host FC Dallas for another week and a half, and have two very important games between now and then, all the talk right now is about the game on May 28th.
For me, this is a good thing. Even though MLS has been around for 15 years, major rivalries have struggled to materialize and stories between games have been limited. With the Cascadia Cup becoming part of the MLS season, John Spencer calling out coaches, and the Dynamo doing their part, it looks like major rivalries are starting to be built. For MLS and soccer fans in America, this is a good thing.
