Like babysitting, soccer requires an abundance of energy, sudden bursts of speed, and occasional time-outs for inappropriate kicks. Keep an eye on an invigorated scrimmage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to the Major League Soccer match between the Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas at Whataburger Field on Saturday, February 12 at 2 p.m. (up to a $22 value). Admission for children 3 and under is free.
Donning the gleaming 2010 MLS Cup finalist badge, FC Dallas gears up for breakaway battle with in-state opponents the Houston Dynamo. Don your most soccer-appropriate cummerbund and trek to the neutral soccer soils of Whataburger Field to witness 90 minutes of breathtaking saves, fancy footwork, and awe-inspiring deflections. The matchup brings some of soccer’s most talented players to the field, including Dallas’s prize midfielder David Ferreira, fresh from his November coronation as Major League Soccer MVP for the 2010 season, and Houston’s senior-roster sporting goalkeeper Tyler Deric.
