Landon the Legend: Landon Donovan added another inspired performance to his glittering career Sunday night in Carson in leading the Galaxy to a rout of Real Salt Lake in the MLS playoffs (Photos by Staff Photographer Stephen Carr).
This was a game those who attended will tell their grandchildren about.
Los Angeles News Group MLS beat writer Phil Collin has the game story, but in all honesty this was a Western Conference semifinal that must be watched to be fully appreciated:
“One of the things that was in my control was how I played,” Donovan said. “So I wanted to make sure that when I went home tonight and looked in the mirror that I knew I gave everything regardless of the result. Fortunately the team played well too, and made for a really fun night. I had fun, and I wanted to have fun tonight. If this was going to be the last game, I told my girlfriend today that I wanted to have fun and I want to enjoy it. If we lose, we lose, but I want to make sure I enjoy it. More often than not, when I enjoy the game, I play well.”
I will have more in Tuesday’s column.
