Quakes, FC Dallas front offices make a wager

As San Jose takes on FC Dallas on Saturday, Executive Vice President David Alioto is taking part in the “Get In and Win Charity Challenge” against FC Dallas President and CEO Doug Quinn, who has won his last three challenges.
An Earthquakes win at Buck Shaw Stadium would earn Soccer Silicon Valley four 2011 season tickets, courtesy of Quinn and FC Dallas. Should FC Dallas come away with a victory, Alioto will donate four 2011 season tickets to the FC Dallas-based charity of Quinn’s choice, which for this week is the Frisco YMCA.
The Earthquakes have won three of their last four matches, including the last two at home, and have not allowed a goal at Buck Shaw Stadium in 244 minutes of play, spanning two-plus matches.
