If you are new to the 3rd Degree blog here at ESPN, you may not know we were around a long time as in independent site before coming to ESPN/Dallas. In fact, we just celebrated our 14th birthday this last October.
So to help celebrate our upcoming 15th season of FC Dallas coverage I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the great goals in FC Dallas history. From now through the end of the season I'll pick out a great goal, find the video if I can, and tell you a little about it.
To kick it off, here's one from Brek Shea this season that is truly spectacular. FC Dallas won the game at Toronto FC 1-0 on July 20, 2011, to continue what became a 7 game unbeaten streak.
Shea wins the ball in midfield and immediately receives it back from Daniel Hernandez. Shea then goes on a run straight through the heart or the TFC midfield before launching a canon of a line drive to the corner of the goal.
Here is the goal in all it's glory.
