Sunday afternoon at Dallas Farmers Market, Brandon Pollard broke the bad news: I'd somehow managed to miss an old-timers kick-around at Pizza Hut Park the day before featuring the likes of Bobby Moffat, Chad Deering, Tatu and, of course, the Texas Honeybee Guild'er buzzing around Shed One. (Ticket tie-in: Bob Sturm and Dan McDowell were coaches.) Brandon was kind enough to send along the roster, and FC Dallas -- which is hands-down the best local sports organization when it comes to promoting the brand name with smartly done videos -- today provides this blast from the past.
