Stressful period ends for Ching as Dynamo do the right thing
Houston Chronicle - almost 4 years
Nobody on the Dynamo knows Brian Ching better than Bobby Boswell. They room together on the road and they are usually together off the pitch when they’re not with their girlfriends or families, so Boswell was happy to hear that his pal has signed a contract to be a player-coach this season. “He’s my roommate and we hang out a lot,” Boswell said. “We’ve hung out since I got here. He’s always the first guy to text or email or call somebody when they’re traded or picked up here. He and Pat Onstad were the first when I was traded here.” Because of their tight bond, Boswell understood just how frustrated and stressed out Ching had been recently as his negotiations with the team dragged on. “I know it’s been stressing him out a little bit,” Boswell said. “Obviously it’s a tough time for anyone, not knowing what direction your life is going to take.

It’s time to work on penalties ahead of MLS Cup final
Houston Chronicle - about 4 years
Pat Onstad helped the Dynamo bring the MLS Cup to Houston for the first time in 2006. (Karen Warren/Chronicle) Only two days away from the MLS Cup final, it’s time to close practice and add some work with penalty kicks. The Galaxy are closing their practice at Home Depot Center after the first 15 minutes, so we’ll essentially get to see Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane stretch. With that said, David Beckham’s holding a press conference today. The Dynamo will practice at home and arrive in L.A. later today. Coach Dominic Kinnear will surely close part of training today to work on penalty kicks. Most of the Dynamo practice will be closed tomorrow too. Most Dynamo fans will always remember goalkeeper Pat Onstad triumphantly palming the silver MLS soccer ball and running toward the sideline at Pizza Hut Park after making the crucial save to win the 2006 MLS Cup final in a penalty shootout against the New England Revolution. Until then, no MLS Cup final had been decided by penalt ...
