Though many of our DynamoTheory readers were able to witness such a commanding performance live, there was plenty of talk on Twitter that you might've missed. Here's some of the highlights.

Sadly, the Dynamo kicked off this match in the midst of a Houston Texans home game just down the road. The empty seats were certainly felt:

Nonetheless, fans of both teams were spotted roaming the concourse before the first whistle:
