FC Dallas vs. C.S. Cartaginés

Soccer is finally back! I don't know if you can tell know you cant see the smile on my face as I write this but trust me its there. I have been dying to shoot some good soccer for months now and that time has finally come around. Its preseason, and you know what that means, relaxed rules and cold weather!

I like to think that I can stand the cold since I was born and raise in Washington State. Well, Saturday proved otherwise! After 30 mins in the misty cold I shakily ran for shelter in the warm press box. After a half a box of free press box pizza and a coffee later I headed back out to shoot the second half.

With only a week and a half weeks until the start of CONCACAF Champions League for FC Dallas the team looked really good. I expect another deep run from them this year!
