Road Trip to First Kick 2012

Road Trip To First Kick: 2012


Location: Dallas, Texas

Time: Sunday, 6:44 pm, CT

The countdown is done. First Kick is finally here.

The East Coast crew was on site at FC Dallas Stadium for Sunday's matchup between the hosts from Frisco and the New York Red Bulls, a tantalizing rematch between two teams who clashed in the playoffs last season.

Nick and Temryss took a look back at the more than 3,300 miles traveled since they started it all back in Philadelphia (above), and offered up their memories of the best moments from an incredible trip.

Make sure you also check out an interview with FCD star Brek Shea and check out Nick's 1-v-1 interview with New York Red Bulls midfielder Dax McCarty.

The West Coast crew of Drea and Dunny, meanwhile, have wrapped up their trip in Los Angeles after a long journey from Arizona to Seattle, and back down the coast to Southern California. Check out their road trip wrap video to hear about their favorite memories from the trip.

And don't miss the sights and sounds from the HDC on opening night, when the crew took in the LA Galaxy's showdown against Real Salt Lake.

Thanks to everyone for following along on the trip. It was a long journey for crews, but it was worth it. The 2012 MLS season is finally here, so let the fun begin.
