Justice for the Dynamo

Despite being the most popular sport in the world, the typical U.S. sportswriter dismisses it, bashes it, and revels in his own self-imposed ignorance of the beautiful game.

That being said, I'm proud of Houston's own Richard Justice a/k/a "The Media" has written another great column about the Houston Dynamo:

Justice is a columnist and sportswriter for the Houston Chronicle,, with a focus on baseball. He's also a regular guest on 1560 The Game, the station that actually gave over an hour of airtime for a soccer show focusing on the Dynamo in the playoffs.

And I should note, this isn't the first time The Media has openly written about soccer:

After managing a 1-1 draw in the Meadowlands last week, the Dynamo will face the Red Bull in the second leg of the first round of the MLS Playoffs this Sunday at Robertson Stadium in Houston at 2:00 p.m. local time.

Meanwhile, after much silence on the topic, there has been a flurry of stadium talk discussion here in Houston:

As a citizen of Houston proper, it is time for the city to step up and move forward on the stadium issue.
