Chris Baldwin wrote a wonderful piece on CultureMap (link here) about how BBVA Compass Stadium has turned a Dynamo ticket into THE hot ticket in Houston-town these days, mentioning a list of celebrities both local and national who were there on Saturday. And with the team potentially starting the season with five sell-outs or near-sellouts, I see nothing to argue against what Baldwin wrote, recognizing as he does what we have known all along, the Houston Dynamo are painting the town Orange. Here's my favorite quote from the piece: At a soccer game . . . The game, the event in all of Houston. On a day when the Art Car Parade rolls through H-Town, one of the most beautiful Saturdays we're likely to see in a long while (maybe till October), there is no doubt what's the toughest ticket in town. There is only one place to be, only one phrase that can cause envy, and it's "I'm at the Dynamo game." No, wait, here's my favorite excerpt: The Dynamo's new stadium is not dominated by a scoreboard (a la Cowboys Stadium). It's not dominated by quirks (a la the hill in center field, or the home run train at Minute Maid Park). It's dominated by the action on the field. I encourage you to read the whole piece.
