A Soccer Rarity -- A Triumph for Common Sense
There are three heroes in this story -- though heroes is really much too dramatic a word. Three good guys, then, who saw that something was wrong in soccer, did something about it, and got things put right.

"I always thought if I was in that position I would kind of keep my cool and just be relaxed, but I guess it's to be determined.

So if I get out of hand, they can drag me back into my seat."

-- Landon Donovan on coaching. He will make his debut on Tuesday night as the head coach of the MLS Homegrown Team for its match against Club America Under-20s in the Chipotle MLS Homegrown Game. (ESPN FC)
