According to our favorite local multi-sport coverage beat-writer extraordinaire (yes, this is sarcasm), Head Coach Dominic Kinnear thinks veteran forward Brian Ching might be back in Orange next season after all.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see (Ching) playing next year," said Kinnear, who also made it clear Houston is where Ching would want to play.

It seems so long ago that the Montreal Impact picked Brian Ching in the 2011 Expansion Draft last November, causing quite a stir in Houston and causing more than a few bad feelings between folks in Houston and Impact coach Jesse Marsch.

Ching 95 percent certain this is his last season

We pretty much knew this would be the case, but it's still a bummer considering how much he's meant to the team. Either way, we know he'll be a part of the Dynamo organization moving forward in come capacity.

I spent the last glorious week post-graduation curled up in a fetal position in my room back in Houston.

Now, I get colds from time to time, but rarely have I been this sick.

The Dynamo travel to the nation's capital to face streaking DC United who are unbeaten in six matches, going back to a March 18th loss to the Galaxy. United took apart the New York Red Bulls last weekend 4-1 so one expects they'll be full of confidence ahead of this early season Eastern Conference clash.

After 3 weeks of sitting around, and 70+ minutes of rain delays, the Dynamo's match against the Chicago Fire was called off - officially slated as a final 1-1 score. That means 7 points from our first 4 road matches (a tally, you might recall, that we had hoped to get from the first 7 matches combined).

Dynamo at Fire: At Last Another Match

Dynamo Theory at related • 1 view

It's only been two weeks since the Dynamo last played an MLS match, but it feels like a month. Considering the season just started and the fact we're still a month (a little less technically) from the home opener probably contributes to the gap feeling a lot worse.

It's been a tumultuous couple weeks though for the Dynamo despite not being on the field.

The Striker Pairing Equation: Bruin + Ching or Bruin vs. Ching?

Dynamo Theory at related • 0 views

It's a pretty nice Monday morning for Dynamo fans out there. Two road victories in a row, and two shutouts: this is probably way above what most of us were expecting, and a great way to prepare for a tough trip to Seattle (honestly, I'd sign for this 1-1 draw we ended up with last season).

But still, it's the beginning of the season and there's plenty of room for improvements.

Ching equalizer spoils two-goal night from Gaven, earns Dynamo road draw vs. Crew

For 58 minutes, the Houston Dynamo's visit to Crew Stadium was a goal-less snoozer that looked unlikely to produce a goal. Four goals later, fans at Crew Stadium had been treated to an exciting finish even if the home team was unable to secure the victory.

Columbus midfielder Eddie Gaven scored two goals to cancel out an early Will Bruin score and give the Crew a 2-1 lead in the second half, but Bruin set up Ching with a quality chance the veteran buried in the 81st minute to give Houston a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

So Sporting KC won't go undefeated after all. Bummer. A 34-0-0 team would have been impressive. Okay, maybe that's impossible but Sporting KC nonetheless appeared headed towards another win before Saturday's game at Portland and came away empty-handed for the first time in 2012.

That was not enough to knock them off their perch.

Ok, ok. It may be a bad pun but it makes more sense than the "3 Questions" moniker. Why, you may Ask? Well, most exchanges are more than 3 questions, and some are one sided only (like today's).
