Greetings from Houston, where last night’s brutal thunderstorms have passed and today’s MLS matche between the Dynamo and D.C. United at the new BBVA Compass Stadium should proceed without weather issues. To get you ready.....
The Houston Chronicle continues its superb coverage of the stadium opening with a story on the front of the print edition’s main section.
Happy 25th birthday to United’s Chris Pontius.
TV details: Coverage on NBC Sports Network begins at 4:30 p.m. ET, but kickoff isn’t until close to 5 p.m. With the match ending around 7 o’clock, that gives you a half-hour to prepare for the Washington Capitals’ Game 7 at New York on the same channel.
DCU: Hamid; Russell, McDonald, Woolard, Korb; Cruz, Kitchen, De Rosario, Najar; Pontius, Santos. Subs: Willis, White, King, Boskovic, Neal, Salihi, Wolff.
