The Dynamo returned to BBVA Compass Stadium tonight with a real opportunity to clinch the top position in the highly contested Western Conference of the MLS. However, they would have to do so without their leading assister Alex Lima, who was given a red card in last week’s tie against Real Salt Lake.

Pardon the long absence…

First of all, I would like to apologize to my followers for being absent for so long on both Youtube and on my blog. These past couple of weeks have been very exhausting but fulfilling in my personal life. As many may recall from my twitter, I was in the process of being interviewed for a job in Houston, Texas. I am proud to say that I was hired for the position, and as a result, I had to begin my preparations for the move to a completely new environment. This pretty much reduced the time available to watch and write about RGVFC for La Carga Naranja or upload the Toros FIFA 16 Career Mode videos for my youtube channel. 

I would like to take the time to everyone who sent their best wishes on twitter on personally. I would love to give a shoutout to Justin, Josh, and Sean at The Peel for helping me feel welcome in Houston’s soccer world. I would also give a huge shoutout to my extended family in Houston for keeping me in their thoughts and checking up on my welfare. But most importantly, a HUGE thank you to my parents and sister for their wonderful support all these years. 

Having said this, once I get internet set up in my apartment, I should be able to get back on track with the content you love. It hasn’t been a good season for the Toros but hopefully we can turn this around just in time to make the playoffs. I will also now be covering more Dynamo and Dash material as well so be prepared for that. Until next time, take care and #ForeverOrange.

Humiliation. If there was one word to describe Wednesday’s game against Sacramento, this would be it. Sacramento made RGVFC’s defense look like a Sunday League team. The ease at which the front three attackers for Sacramento created and finished opportunities in front of Angoitia’s goal was troubling to say the least.
