Sunday night saw Landon Donovan play his final regular season game in StubHub Center. Given that the Galaxy star will play at least one more home game in Carson (in the playoffs), the significance of the occasion was questionable …
Until LA Galaxy’s media department pulled off this coup:
Yes, the Boyz II Men, and although the group is one man down these days, it’s still a hard act to top. Sure, there are more famous groups, but only one can accurately claim to be Landon Donovan’s favorite boy band. And only one has a new album being released tomorrow.
In addition to paying their respects to Donovan, the quartet-cum-trio sang the national anthem ahead of LA’s visit from Seattle — a game between two teams fighting it out for the Supporters’ Shield. Should LA win that tussle, it could play up to three more home games in the postseason. How does Landon feel about Bell Biv Devoe?
As you can sense, there’s a part of me that’d become a little weary of Landon’s prolonged farewell. But that part wilted when I heard “End of the Road,” though. True, I was much more of a “Water Runs Dry” guy in my prime, but “End …” was tonight’s obvious choice.
It is the end of the road, and for some, they can’t let go. It’s unnatural. He belongs to them. They belong to him.
