Giles Barnes was the Belle of the Ball Friday night at Dynamo Celebration 2014, the teams year-end awards banquet. Hosted by Sebastian Salazar fans and players attended the event held at Crowne Plaza Houston. However, the Belle of the Ball was late thanks to traffic and thanks to Snapchat fans got to experience the night through his eyes. From picking out his shoes to a final snap with the newest Dynamo, fans got to see behind the curtain.
