Well Suited: USMNT At The ESPY Awards

When we first heard about the ESPY Awards, we lost hours of our lives thinking about how we could blag our way in and receive thousands of award-winning spa treatments. Then, (once sober), we realised we were confusing the American sports awards put on by ESPN with ESPA the beauty brand we want to marry. We know the difference now, and can say with authority that these two things are both fabulous, but completely unrelated.
Now on with the story. The ESPY Awards descended on Los Angeles last night and the USMNT was quite well-represented.
Landon Donovan was the winner of three ESPY awards: Best MLS Player, Best Performance Under Pressure, and Best Moment for his stoppage time goal against Algeria during the World Cup. In true team spirit fashion, all of the USMNT members in attendance took to the stage to accept the award for Best Moment. Here’s our top three observations from the show:
After his very public shout out and profession of love for his estranged wife at the World Cup, it appears that Landon Donovan and Bianca Kajlich are back together again. They even snogged each time Landy got up to receive an award! Yup, they’re at that stage of the Reunited-And-It-Feels-So-Good part of the relationship.
In even better news for the Donovans, Landon told the E! channel last night that he is not about to become a dad via some random he met while on loan with Everton last winter. Skirting your first major scandal is an important step in the life of a footballer. We will be holding out for the day when Landon and Bianca produce inevitably adorable bubbas. Hurray for love and all other such corniness!

Pictured here with the equally as sizzling Jozy Altidore and Maurice Edu, Stuart Holden was tweeting pics throughout the evening. He was voted most likely to pull a prank and compared his hair to Zac Efron’s. He also wore a skinny tie. If Stu gets any cuter he’s on our one-to-kidnap list.

Yes, this lady has the power to bring Kickette HQ to instant, complete and utter jealous raging, the likes of which haven’t appeared since we saw a WAG with a Birkin. Real talk. Although we put out a call to the Twitterverse for more info on Boca’s mystery lady, it seems as though the Kickette Army is just as lacking in information / in denial as we are. ‘Los is booed up, y’all.
Carlos alluded to his lady in a recent Interview magazine piece, but we were hoping it was just a typo. Alas, t’was not to be. See you at Ben & Jerrys.
