    I was there right in front of where Landon slid after the goal. I dont even remeber him kicking it. I thought the goalie just kicked it back out onto the field. I guess the screaming and yelling and chanting USA USA grabbed my attention away from the pitch! Way to go guys.

    I was too busy pulling myself of the floor, back on to the couch, and wiping the tears to notice what in the hell happened to the ball!

    These guys have some serious karma on their side. Hopefully Landon hooks them up with some cool stuff.

    On the replay it’s pretty clear Donovan didn’t kick the ball into the crowd, at least not right after he scored. He scored ran to the corner and did the dive, and was buried by teammeates. Maybe someone else did, I can’t tell that from the replay.

    Oh, listening again to the interview, they say he kicked it into the crowd after the final whistle.

    how is it possible that Donovan does not remember kicking the ball? Didn’t you watch the highlights of one of the greatest moments in US Soccer history where you were the main hero? Whats up with that?

    Matador, highlights rarely include the final whistle. Also, it was basically all of the players running together. I am sure the pure adrenaline of the moment explains the situation.

    Greatest sports minute of my life. I have been to big games here in America, but that was whole World Cup experience was off the charts. You guys would have been proud of the fans afterwards. They sang the anthem, hugged, cried and even hugged all the Algerians – trading flags, shirts. Wishing them well. PROUD!

    Top athletes probably do watch highlights, but Landon “NO HEART” Donovan doesn’t care enough about the US national team to do so…

    Anyone know how that fan got that jersey already? Thought it wasn’t for sale until July?
