Dirty Tackle

The large El Salvador contingent in attendance at their Gold Cup quarterfinal against the United States in Baltimore made their presence known throughout the match, making noise and throwing whatever they could onto the pitch when an opposing player would attempt to take a corner kick. Landon Donovan experienced this with the U.S. up 5-1 in the 87th minute. And he responded with an impromptu homage to CSI: Miami's David Caruso.

As he prepared to take a corner kick in front of the opposing supporters, plastic cups and other items rained down (along with the actual rain, which was happening at the time) on the edge of the pitch. Among the foreign objects at his feet, Donovan found a pair of sunglasses, which he attempted to give to the official behind him. The handoff failed though, so Donovan decided to put the glasses on before the ref grabbed them off his face.

Donovan scored a goal and set up three others in the USA's 5-1 win. He now has three goals and six assists in the tournament, thus proving the restorative powers of taking a sabbatical in Cambodia. Here's video of his goal, complete with his celebratory attempt to hug the sky...
