With Robbie Keane and Gyasi Zardes away on international duty, United welcome a weakened LA Galaxy side to RFK this Saturday.

All due respect to Landon Donovan, no man in an L.A. Galaxy uniform has been more responsible in forging a Major League Soccer dynasty than veteran striker Robbie Keane.

I was on the record two years ago saying that the passionate, highly productive Irishman should have been Major League Soccer's MVP for 2013.

Landon Got It

The MLS Cup, yeah, that. Landon Donovan went out with a championship. Yet more than that, LD got what it meant to bring together all the diverse craziness that is part of the soccer landscape in the USA. Americans played in the first World Cup ever, but that bright start (a semifinal finish) back in 1930 quickly fizzled out without consistent support in a big country.

Donovan Could Do It

There's precedent for a Landon Donovan comeback to soccer, though mostly in a different sport.
In a way, it's comparable to how Michael Jordan retired from basketball to play baseball for a while before coming back to basketball.

No, I'm not saying LD in soccer is anywhere near what MJ was to basketball - it's more that when MJ came back to play basketball, he could still do so at the NBA level.

According to Landon Donovan, of all the matches he played in, the two that stood out the most to him as signature games, or his best games, were two in particular.

I mentioned it before, and it turned out to be true - Landon Donovan won a Univision Deportes award and showed up to give a nice speech in Spanish.
He didn't say "deservo", either. His Spanish was quite correct, in fact.
But announcer Enrique Bermudez, one of a bevy of talent covering the awards, lived up to his nickname, "El Perro" (the dog), because he had a bone to pick that he couldn't let go.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – In a perfect world, Charlie Davies wouldn't be trying to send friend and former U.S. teammate Landon Donovan into retirement on a disappointing note. But that's a luxury the Revolution striker clearly doesn't have.

The reality is, of course, that Davies and his Revolution teammates will be doing all they can for the chance to lift the MLS Cup trophy at the expense of the LA Galaxy and Donovan, whose final game coincides with Sunday's championship tilt.
