Well, fast forward 15 years and one Polyphonic Spree written anthem later, and MLS's FC Dallas not only has dedicated stadium in Frisco, but they are also one of the first teams to be running on a profit.
To top things off, FC Dallas beat Landon Donovan and David Beckam's LA Galaxy to go all the way to the MLS Cup this year against the Colorado Rapids. Although they didn't win, it was a hard fought battle that went all the way into the second overtime.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
