Oh snap

Broken Hearts but we will survive!

This season has been pretty bad for FC Dallas fans and supporters. Injuries, red cards, blowing leads, bad officiating and just straight missing opportunities for the 3 points. 

None the less, we still have a shot to sneak into the playoffs. I hope the team can come out of this break with a new found sense of urgency. The teams needs to come together and play like they want to make it to the finals again. It should not be that hard now that a lot of the players should be coming off the injured list. Shea (suspended / Turf Toe), Ferreira, and Villar would be able to make a huge impact right off the bat once they are back on the pitch. The team needs to step up and get it done. Band together and lets find our stride again!

There are plenty of games left but we will need some help in order to get into the playoffs. We will do our part as fans to scream, chant, and go mental for our FCD and motivate our team to play as hard as they can. Lets get it done! Lets get the wins and lets get healthy and show the MLS what we are made of! #DTID

The SBE is starting to grow and we could not be happier. We are adding member almost every game. We really appreciate all the love we have received. We have received a lot of compliments on the name and our style of supporting.  We have had a lot of support from other groups from around the world. We grow stronger with every follower on facebook, twitter, and here on the blog. We really appreciate the support. It shows our style of supporting our club is going in the right direction.

We are moving forward. We are growing. We will show the Front Office how to grow a supporters group. We will show what Dallas support is truly about. So join us in the SUPPORTERS section and lets go mental! 

On a side note. We are trying to get together for the game this weekend at the Allen Wickers. If you are interested join us. The Allen Wickers is a great place to watch some footy!

The Tradition!

The tradition of smoking cigars started about 2 seasons ago. During one of our tailgates we decided why not add a few cigars to this fancy shin dig.
 So we went across the street to a nice cigar shop and grabbed a few.

Since then we have all chosen out favorites and have our own preference to what we smoke. Clint usually brings in an array of cigars when he makes his trip up from Austin for the games. George also brings his preferred with a few unknowns for us to try. It really fits what we are really about as a group. We are chilled, laid back, and fun. This is a down time for us before we get into stadium and go Nuckin Futz!

You will always find us grouped up in a circle drinking beer, whiskey, and other assorted beverages with cigars in hand. We shoot the shit and have a ton of fun spending time with friends and other supporters.

So join us! Bring some drinks! Bring some cigars! Have fun and Join the Inferno, El Matador, and the SBE in the supporters section! 120/121

221.7 Miles

Next week I will take a trek that I adore.  I will be driving up with my lovely wife and my best friend of many years.  We will spend a weekend up among people that started out as gamer buddies on the internet.  How crazy am I, right?  Not crazy at all.  I'm pumped up for this.

Last year I made one of the best trips I have made in my life.  I drove to Dallas on a Friday night.  The next morning I joined with the Inferno and Matador and some of my close friends to ride to Houston for a match.  THAT was an incredible amount of fun.

Austin is a pretty happening place... don't get me wrong.  I grew up in Austin from the age of 9.  I went to middle school and high school and played a few sports.  University of Texas - Austin dominates all of the local athletic scene.  We have a few minor league sport franchises (Texas Stars, Round Rock Express, Austin Toros) and will soon have an F1 race track... Moto GP along with it perhaps.  I spent some time up in Dallas, so I did adopt the Mavericks some time ago as my team.  I hate Jerry Jones and stopped loving the Cowboys way back when he fired Jimmy Johnson.  So I have my teams... UT Football, UT Basketball, Dallas Mavs... but there was still a hole there.  What about baseball?  I have a passing interest in UT baseball, but only because it is local and easy.  You have a team of perennial favorites to at least go to the College World Series. Let's face it, though... the fans for any UT sporting event are... reactionary.  The entire stadium or arena sit on their butt until something happens.  Most of the crowd consists of old people and stuck-up business types.  Ugh.

So I guess my point is... I have my options locally.  Those options don't suck, either.  But let's be real... going to the sporting event is only partially about how well the team does on the field.  That's why I love going to FCD games.  That is why I'm willing to travel 221.7 miles in each direction.

So next week I bring the people I care most about to join once again with my adoptive family.  We are joined by a common bond--a need to drink together, smoke cigars (for good luck) and to march together to our section and get rowdy.  

And after the game is over... and the fireworks have gone off... we go to Burger Girl and I get my usual (grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tomato soup to dip it in).

All of these reasons make every mile worth it.  We gas the car... pay for food on the way up... board the dog... and spend plenty of money on beer.  Hell, sometimes I even brew beer and take it up to share.

So yeah... that's why.  I cannot wait.

Why so much hate? We love you all!
We are going to take a moment to explain our intentions. It seems some people think that we are some type of group looking for fights in stadiums and what not. This is not true. We are a group of FANATICS! We have huge sense of humor. Hence the name (We will explain the name later). We are standing up for a belief that we think is right. Just because you do not see things how we do does not mean we are attacking you. We are doing the complete opposite. Please come to games. Sit where you want. Support how you want. If it is not in the fashion that we support in, so be it. We will not bash you, hate on you, or call you out. You are a fan and that is good enough for us. We appreciate anyone that supports our beloved club FC Dallas. We don't care what is happening in Houston. This is Dallas and we will be a great supporters group, PERIOD.

We want a section filled with fanatics. People jumping, screaming, tossing up beer **Cough** El **Cough** Matador. We want fanatic fans! We want to create an intimidating stadium for rival teams. We want them to see the stands and think "Wow, that looks insane". We are not looking to start a riot or harm anyone. We want to intimidate the opposing team and cheer on our home team. Being a supporter entails both of these aspects. 

If you do not agree with what we stand for, fine. All we ask is to be mature and not flame us as we are not flaming you. 

To the name. Some people find it offensive which is ok. We have used this name for 13 years.  This is the name that the core of this group has used for PC gaming. We competed in world competitions under this name. So it was natural for us to adopt it for this group. Everyone can find something in a name to be offended about. Relax, calm down, let us get ready for the new season!
