Bill White: "They're Dynamo-ite!"
It's been a common complaint among Houston soccer fan that the city don't give soccer, er, football, no love. But that's changing today.
There's a ceremony going on right now at City Hall in which Houston mayor B. White is proclaiming Sunday, October 29 "Go Orange!" Day in honor of the Houston Dynamo, which closes its first-round playoff series against Chivas USA this Sunday. This could finally be the answer to the Houston Texans Battle Red Day.
"The whole city is excited and proud of our Dynamo," says Mayor White. (Hear that, soccer fan? The whole city.) "We wish them good luck and look forward to celebrating Houston's first championship soccer team."
Dynamo All-Star Eddie Robinson and president and general manager Oliver Luck will hang with the mayor and shower him with Dynamo gifts. Bet Mayor BW would look quite smart in the orange jersey and matching shorts. -- Steven Devadanam
