EPISODE 5 – Landon Donovan, an LA Galaxy legend?
Welcome to Episode 5, “Landon Donovan, an LA Galaxy Legend?” The episode that almost didn’t make it. It was an interesting week for the #SFTS crew thanks to company Christmas parties, hangovers, travel, and connectivity issues to name a few. In the end – although later than we wanted to – Episode 5 is here.
In Episode 5, “Landon Donovan, an LA Galaxy Legend?” the #SFTS guys cover a mix of topics, both current and past. The crew begin by reacting to Chris Klein’s contract extension, the four-hour transfer window after the MLS Cup and LA Galaxy’s preseason schedule. Then the boys get into an interesting conversation about Landon Donovan being an LA Galaxy that leads to a game of LA Galaxy Mt. Rushmore.
