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.
Maybe because we got caught up in the hype, we began to wonder what Dallas' new major league friends listen to before games and in general. So we decided to ask what FC Dallas Captain and Defender (not to mention Tyler native and SMU grad) Daniel Hernández and Goalkeeper (not to mention US National Team member and former MLS Player of the Month) Kevin Hartman that very question.
It seems Hernandez prefers old school R&B of Jodeci and Luther Vandross while Hartman prefers more indie music, such as Mumford & Sons and Muse. Perhaps the most interesting choice of all? Hartman's guilty pleasure, a Neon Trees and Justin Bieber Mashup of "Animal" and "Baby."
See and listen to both of their playlists after the jump!
