Endeavour, Dynamo, Olympians and the Champions Cup

Well, with Dynamo spread across the hemisphere this morning, the main team in Guatemala for tomorrow's opening leg of the CONCACAF Champions Cup against CSD Municipal and Stuart Holden and Patrick Ianni with the US Olympic squad playing against Cuba in Tampa tonight, I thought it an apt time to post this video of seven adopted Houstonians turning the Florida sky a decidedly Dynamo shade of orange early this morning.

So Hail Hail to the STS-123 crew of Dominic Gorie, Gregory H. Johnson, Rick Linnehan, Robert L. Behnken, Mike Foreman, Garrett Reisman and Japanese astronaut (and possible Gamba Osaka fan) Takao Doi (representing the J-League?) on your mission. And the stands at Robertson will be rocking for you when you get back in time for the candystriper game April 6. That is, except for you Dr. Reisman, since you will be staying on board Alpha. We'll celebrate your return in a few months. So in the meantime, soon-to-be-former ISS crewmember LĂ©opold Eyharts will have to take your place.

You'll never fly alone.

More on the Champions Cup in a later post. But in the meantime, check out these photos of where the Lads l'Orange will take it to Los Rojos Wednesday night, Estadio Olimpico Mateo Flores in beautiful Guatemala City. Wish I could be there.
