I'm about a week late in posting this, but all good things come to those who wait. And when I mean good, I mean H-O-T!!
Unless you've been in a desolate location without a television, or you've not been reading my columns (cough, cough), you absolutely know who USA soccer hottie Landon Donovan is.
Team USA was eliminated by Ghana last Saturday, however, Landon Donovan, and his abs will stick in our minds for a very long time. Perhaps he should have dated a Kardashian during the World Cup?!? Never mind, tangent. We like him single, anyway.
Okay, so perhaps he's in a bit of a pickle. Turns out he may be a daddy very soon. The newly-separated soccer stud (he was married to actress Bianca Kajlich from the TV show Rules of Engagement ) seems to have gotten a lady friend preggers across the pond, or at least that's what she says...convenient timing for her to visit People magazine? Yes?
Well, we aren't ones to judge, but we are giving Soccer Luvah massive kudos for stepping forward and saying that he'll take full responsibility for the situation. Landon Donovan told Sports Illustrated, "I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support..." Well played my friend...
Though our soccer patriot might still have eyes for his ex. The verdict is still out if Landon and Bianca have reconciled. After the soccer goal heard round the world he very publicly acknowledged his ex, and she returned the cup of love via her twitter page.
Mr. Donovan is now back in the states for a very special 4th of July. According to his Facebook page, he's back in his surroundings, quoting, "It feels good to be home."
Home being, Manhattan Beach, CA...where, ahem...we'll be this weekend.
Landon, who plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy, will be reunited with his team Sunday night when LA takes on the Seattle Sounders in a homecoming celebration that will guarantee fireworks.
Now dolls, let me better introduce you to our Mister American Pie...
