From tailgates to wedding vows: How two Houston Dynamo fans found love through soccer

HOUSTON — There’s a saying that you can find love where you least expect it, and the soccer-inspired love story of Houston Dynamo fans James and Melissa Hromadka seems to be the perfect example.

For a couple of years, he just watched MLS to enjoy the sport, but never really felt like any team was his own, until 2006 when the San Jose Earthquakes were relocated to Houston.

He couldn’t have known it, but the birth of the Dynamo was going to change his life.
