Sometimes partnerships can be a beautiful thing. Take, for example, FC Dallas' partnership with Brazil's Clube Atletico Paranaense. Given that MLS players are all older than the league itself, we have to acknowledge the fact that we're the newbies in the world's favorite sport (the other football). With that in mind, it's nice to know that we can hold our own with the internationals, and our partnership with Atletico Paranaense has helped us learn how. Our three-year relationship with Atletico Paranaense has given us great players like Richardinho, fan favorite Andre Roch and the newly acquired Colombian national team member David Ferreira. In celebration of the partnership, FC Dallas plays host to the second leg of the third annual USA-Brazil Challenge against Clube Atletico Paranaense this weekend. Show your Hoops Nation spirit when FC Dallas takes on Brazil's Atletico Paranaense 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Pizza Hut Park, 6000 Main St. in Frisco. Tickets are $28 to $150.
