Triple the Fun with the DFE in April
The quirky MLS schedule brings an active April. FCD is off to its usual hot start, posting shutouts in three of the first four matches and proving that nobody from Dallas enjoys visiting Houston in the other.
It all starts April 2 when we welcome defending MLS minor league (Eastern Conference) champs Columbus. From a heckling standpoint, I’m really looking forward to getting after Frederico Higuain who’s more talented younger brother plays for Napoli (one of Italy’s top clubs). Get ready for a lot of “Higi Higi Higi, can’t you see, your brother plays for Nap-o-li.”
The game kicks off at 8pm and the tailgate sets up on the west side of the stadium at 4pm. The weather looks fantastic. We’ll have a few cases of beer and some fantastic food from Ryan Lotich. The man is a gifted chef. Don’t believe me? Come see for yourself. Please help us cover some of the costs by donating to our tailgate fund at DONATE TO TAILGATE.
We also may have a special guest joining us Saturday. Some of you may remember the July 4 match when FCD helped surprise Sgt. Jerry Holcomb and his family with a mortgage free home. The video went on to receive more than a million views. Sgt. Holcomb and his son, who is a huge soccer fan, plan to stop by our tailgate and say hello. Please welcome a ten-year Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient if he stops by!

Peticolas Brewing Company will sponsor the April 9 tailgate when we welcome San Jose and World Cup choke artist Chris Wondolowski. Seriously, his missed sitter is the soccer equivalent of Nelson Cruz in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. The guy is worse for America than Donald Trump…ok, ok, let’s save that for next week.
April 17 is the final home match of the month as we welcome Sporting Kansas City, the only team in the league with a perfect record! It’s a 6pm kickoff on a Sunday at Stan’s Main Street like we did opening day. Tupps Brewery will be hosting the pre-match that day.
Angry that you have to pay taxes in April? Hang out with the DFE and take the edge off with some great beer, soccer, wonderful friends, and the opportunity to discuss tax code reform with Tea Party Jarrod. Just received a big fat tax refund? Come celebrate with great beer, soccer, wonderful friends, and the opportunity to please Bernie Sanders by donating half of it to the DFE tailgate fund via the link above.
