5 Observations from Houston: October 2014

A handful of notes from a quick trip to Houston
5 Observations from HOU

This was a quick road trip, only in Houston for 30 hours, but there are still plenty of things to talk about.

1. WE WON
That one is pretty self explanatory. We finally won in Houston and by doing so we put ourselves in a great position to win the Eastern Conference. With one point in the remaining two games we will clinch first place in the East and secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Q&A with D.C. United Season Ticket Members Garret and Lisa Stackman

Winners of an adidas sweepstakes, the Stackmans joined DCU on the road
Q&A: the Stackmans

For Garret and Lisa Stackman, this isn’t a typical road trip. As D.C. United fans and season ticket holders for the last eight years, they have had their fair share of road trips and experiences with United, but this time they are a part of the Black-and-Red for the weekend.
