Thanks for everything, Landon
Today, we say goodbye to the most significant and beloved player in the history of American soccer.
For nearly a decade and a half, Landon Donovan has been the pulse of the game stateside — and while he holds the goals and assists records for the U.S. Men’s National Team, his impact extends far beyond what any scoresheet could possibly hint.
From his earliest days as a teenager going up against legends twice his age, to his iconic goal against Algeria, to his unprecedented sabbatical at the peak of his career, Landon inspired millions with his actions between the lines and outside them.
It is a rare thing to see a player at once so confident yet humble, so talented yet grateful, and so selfless yet introspective.
Landon was all of those things, in addition to a damn good soccer player — and we wish him nothing but the best, today and beyond.
Bob Ross soothes and calms and makes me happy like nothing else I’ve ever known.
Fun fact: Bob Ross was a Marine drill sergeant for several years, but quit because he didn’t like yelling at people.
Always reblog the Ross.
I had a shirt with Bob Ross on it and underneath him it said “Happy Trees.”
I miss that shirt.
