The Dynamo are using a Dallas-area billboard to taunt soccer fans up there about the greatness that is them, at least compared to the Dallas MLS club.
Placed between the city and the FC Dallas stadium in Frisco, it's intended to remind fans who has the trophies in this rivalry.
The Web site MLSsoccer.com reports:
"We consider them our rivals because the in-state portion and I think Houston in general has a hatred for everything Dallas," Dynamo senior vice president Rocky Harris told MLSsoccer.com. "This year, we wanted to get the passion out on both sides. On Facebook we saw fans were talking up the rivalry. We thought we should tap into what the fans were saying."
It went up Monday. Hasn't been defaced yet.
