Soccer fans of the seventies were nostalgic for the memories of the NASL. Often, they talk of great teams like the New York Cosmos, Tulsa Roughnecks, Minnesota Kicks and Chicago Sting. One of the major misstep is the fact that the Houston Hurricane is a team rarely mentioned, and even less people have an idea of the first incarnation of soccer in South Texas, the Houston Stars. The new soccer with MLS returned when the relocated San Jose Earthquakes became the Houston Dynamo in 2006.
