Tomorrow Is Dynamo Day -- Break Out Your Hideous Orange Outfits
All right boys and girls, it's time to bust out the orange ties, scarfs, or thongs.
Earlier today, Houston Mayor Bill White announced that tomorrow, November 6, will be "Dynamo Day."
The Houston Dynamo are in the MLS Cup Playoffs, attempting something none of the other current Houston sports franchises have ever done, win a third championship. They played the Seattle Sounders FC to a 0-0 draw last week in Seattle. The return leg will take place this Sunday at Robertson Stadium, where the winner will advance to the Western Conference Finals. The lower bowl of the Rob is sold out, and limited tickets are still available for the 2 p.m. game.
In observance of Dynamo Day tomorrow, the mayor is asking all Houstonians to wear orange to work on Friday, in support of the Dynamo. "Soccer is one of the fastest growing sports in Houston, so we really appreciate having a team of the caliber of our two-time MLS champions," Mayor White said. "Win this weekend; and let's make this year championship number three!"
The Dynamo are trying to win their third MLS Cup in four years. If they advance to the Western Conference Finals, they will face the winner of Chivas USA and LA Galaxy, who are tied in their series 2-2. Their game is on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN2. The Western Conference Champion will play in Seattle for the MLS Cup Sunday, November 22.
Dynamo President and General Manager Oliver Luck expressed the team's gratitude for the support the team has received in Houston. "The Houston Dynamo organization epitomizes what it is to be a Houstonian on and off the field," Luck said. "We're energized by the hometown support."
I'll see y'all Sunday over at Cullen Boulevard.
