Landon Donovan definitely knows how to laugh at himself

You’re probably sick of hearing about Landon Donovan not making the USA’s World Cup team, but this ad is worth just one more mention of it.

Instead of Donovan sporting red, white and blue this summer, we get Landon in his bathrobe, slippers, moping around his apartment while playing as himself on FIFA.

Oh, and make sure you watch it all the way to the end.

That’s got to be one of the best eye-rolls ever.

He may not be going to Brazil, but at least Landon can still give American fans something to smile about.

Mike Magee trolls Jurgen Klinsmann’s son with Tweet

We all remember this, don’t we?

That was the imprudent, maligned Tweet posted - and quickly deleted - by Jurgen Klinsmann’s son Jonathan the day Landon Donovan was cut from the U.S. national team’s World Cup roster.

On Sunday, just three days after the roster snub, Donovan scored two goals against the Philadelphia Union to become Major League Soccer’s all-time leading scorer. Some response! To make the moment even better, reigning MLS MVP Mike Magee of the Chicago Fire couldn’t help but take the opportunity to stand up for his former Galaxy teammate and troll Klinsmann’s son hard at the same time.

Check it out:

Team Donovan 1, Team Klinsmann 0.

Let’s all take a moment to remember this Landon Donovan moment

US Soccer fans, we feel your pain. USA legend Landon Donovan isn’t on Jurgen Klinsmann’s World Cup roster for Brazil this summer, and it stinks. The all-time leading goalscorer will probably never play in a USA jersey ever again, and that’s rather sad.

So instead of getting to depressed about it, let’s just re-live arguably the best Landon Donovan moment in the history of US Soccer, shall we?

Feel better now? No?

Well, we tried.

Eddie Johnson: #DemolitionMan

The US men’s national soccer team put on an impressive show in a 5-1 win over El Salvador to secure a spot in the Gold Cup semifinals. Landon Donovan was the Man of the Match for his goal and three assists, but it was substitute Eddie Johnson who stole the show.

If you blinked, you might have missed it. It took Johnson a ridiculously fast 14 seconds after jogging onto the pitch to score on his very first touch of the game. His header off a perfectly executed short corner kick gave the US a 3-1 lead with 30 minutes to go.

The immediate impact led Gus Johnson to emphatically pronounce him the “Demolition Man!”

Not surprisingly, the twitterverse was abuzz following Gus’s call:

Even US Soccer’s account got in on it:

It’s safe to say that Johnson, whose goal was the quickest ever by a substitute in the history of the Gold Cup, now has a new nickname, courtesy of our own Johnson!
