Eskandarian and Donovan

Great goal from Alecko Eskandarian amidst all of the Donovan and Beckham hoopla that was crowding the LA Galaxy game yesterday.

The other highlight from that game that caught my eye was this quote from Landon Donovan in response to questions he received about flying in last minute on a red eye in order to play the game (he was busy accepting an ESPY award):

"I'm in a place now where it doesn't matter when I arrive or that the preparation is ideal," Donovan said after leading LA to a win vs. New York on Thursday, the same day he arrived via red-eye flight from Los Angeles.

Hope the kids I coach don't read that. That is definitely not the kind of message I send my players!
