When Los Angeles Galaxy player Landon Donovan was not included on the World Cup roster this year, he was faced with a decision. He could sulk and be depressed, or spew hateful words at the coach that snubbed him.
But, he chose a different path– a path that led him to his new role as an ESPN analyst for the tournament and most recently, a starring role in the most recent EA Sports commercial.
In the ad, Donovan sleeps in late, enjoys a cup of coffee and plays video games. Why? Because he can.
He also reminds his fans that he may not be playing in Brazil, but he’s always in the game.
