Opening of the new Pizza Hut Park

Well the hoopla is over with the opening of the new Pizza Hut Park, the new home of FC Dallas.

This is the better of the new soccer stadiums on the MLS circut. You are on top of the action.

There is a cozy atmosphere compared to being at the Cotton Bowl.

This is a place that soccer fans in the DFW will embrace.

FC Dallas was hoping to usher in the new place with a win on opening night.

Carlos Ruiz scored the first goal ever in the new place.

FC Dallas was on top 2-0 over the Metrostars.

But FC Dallas has had a habit of letting teams come back on them in the second half, and the same held true on this night as the Metrostars countered with two goals to tie FC Dallas in the end 2-2.

The winless streak is at 5, and with San Jose and LA closing in on the FC Dallas western conference lead, time for FC Dallas to turn things around in a hurry.

News from training camp. As the Cowboys get ready for their first pre season test with Arizona, the only injury concern for the Boys is first round pick Marcus Spears who came up injured in a practice, spraining his knee and groin.

His injuries is not as bad as the trainers thought. He is out 4 to 6 weeks. Julius Jones is looking good, and hopefully he will stay healthy for a who year, and Terrance Newman is the talk of camp.

He is looking to have a bounce back year, compared to last year which everyone hit him up for a touchdown many times last season.

Then again, this is a bounce back year for all the Cowboys who are looking to forget the memory of a disapointing 6-10 season.
