Congratulations Dynamo

Okay, so I've already expressed how I feel about the overwhelmingly defensive nature of soccer, which makes 0-0 or 1-1 ties commonplace, and the fact that these ties have to be broken by the peculiar mechanism of the penalty kick, a tiebreaking procedure that is unique to soccer. Yesterday's MLS Cup was yet another example of what I think is wrong with soccer and why soccer will never be anything more than a niche sport in the United States.

Nevertheless, it's fun to have a local team that actually wins championships, for a change. Thanks and congratulations are in order for the Houston Dynamo.
