Twitter Reacts! No Landon Donovan in the Final 23

New, 5 comments

US Soccer abruptly dropped the Final 23-man roster for Brazil Thursday afternoon, and twitter went off the rails for one particular omission. This is a compilation of the best and most bizarre.

Over the past 5 years on twitter, I have been carefully cultivating a timeline devoted 97% to soccer, primarily domestic. Over time I prune the dead weight and seek out buried gems to add to the discussion.

Yesterday evening when the USMNT roster cut was announced, Twitter went absolutely bonkers - absolutely flooded with jokes, comments, opinions, and stats about Landon Donovan's missed plane ride to Brazil.
