International Soccer

The U.S. was never in the game and it sets them back a bit in World Cup qualifying. But there's absolutely no reason to press the panic button just yet for this team.

If there's one team that really epitomizes the struggles of sports teams in the DFW area, it has to be FC Dallas. The MLS side of North Texas has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the past five or six seasons with, like every other team in this area, more downs than ups. In 2010, the "Hoops", as they are/were known for their jersey design up until this season, lost to Colorado in the MLS cup thanks to an own goal in extra time. An own goal. That my friends, is as low as it gets.
