What is Landon Donovan doing during the World Cup?
Between working as an analyst for ESPN, Landon Donovan will be watching this World Cup on his couch like you and me. The greatest player of his generation was left out of the final 23 for Brazil, an agonizing cut that had long been coming. Its impact was seismic. Donovan was, after all, the United States' all-time leading scorer, and perhaps the only name recognizable to non-soccer-loving American sports fans.
The LA Galaxy player is known for his candor in interviews and an unpredictable sense of humor. Both are on display in this EA Sports buzz video, released on the day his teammates take the field against Ghana without him. Watching Landon pad around his apartment in Ferris Bueller-esque style will thrill some and make others wish the 32-year-old was in Brazil.
