    Funny, Albany...that's exactly what the inventor of Tivo said just before he was struck with his devine inspiration!

    Thanks for the heads up! I watched it. Not bad. I'm very impressed that channel 11 gave so much air time to the Quakes. But why did Landon have to dis both goals? Is he that egotistical? But kudos to Raj and the KNTV gang for treating the Quakes, if only for a moment, like a real bay area sports team.

    PS: I still say Landon needs Toastmasters. He was so nervous. That's probably why he dissed the goals.

    We know that he's 50-50 on going to Germany. Whether the one 50 is staying in San Jose, I'm not sure. He did seem to be acting a bit edgy, and not just about the goals.

    Perhaps he's trying to start distancing himself emotionally to make his imminent departure a little easier to handle. Just a thought. Because I'd say he's invested his heart and soul into this team for 4 years now and the break won't be easy.

    Maybe Landon was distracted because he realized that piece of arse in the green room won't be moving to Germany anytime soon.

    I missed it! Can anyone give highlights of LD's time? How did he diss the goals?

    All he said was that DeRo's goal was an attempt to cross, and it just went in. Something that Pwamme himself said. And something about Craigy's goal going in off his knee. I thought he was just joking around, and that he wasn't seriously criticizing them. I also thought he was joking when he said that he was the man of the house and what he said goes or something to that effect. Landon's humor. The girlfriend was in the studio, but didn't want to participate. The guy just seemed tired, I know I was.

    Yeah, I think he was joking, but it was the kind of joke you make when you're nervous and not thinking about how it might hurt others' feelings.

    Oh, little Lanny hurt Dwayne and Craigers' feelings, I hope they can stop crying before the next game.

    C'mon, he just a kid. He'll learn. Plus, he's from friggin' SoCal, so whatta' expect? : )

    BTW, if you think about it, this is probably all pretty rough for him. Sure, he's got the world by the tail, but, he is just a kid, and this is the first pro-team he knows where the fans have totally embraced him. It has been his home for 4 years (approx. 1/5 of his life). He's made a lot of friends here, and now he's grappling with the fact he's gonna' leave.

    I think we are priveledged to have had him, and his teamates know that. It's obvious it's a tight knit bunch and like brothers, they're always are messin' with each other (Hey, DeRo, nice cross, I mean, GOAL! HAHAHAHA!)

    I wish I'd seen the show.

    Too bad that Landon didn't do a similar interview as John Stewart (The Daily Show) and give Raj crap for not covering soccer on a regular basis.

    I would never want to play for a team, or work in any environment, where the culture dictates that you can't occasionally give your co-workers some ********. Something tells me neither Waibs nor DeRo were offended, and if anything, they probably gave Landon some form of good-natured receipt at practice.

    I think the most telling part of the interview was in the very last thing Landon said, when he slipped and referred to the Earthquakes as "they," which had me thinking his mind may already be made up about leaving. I forget what the specific question was, though.

    He may be on his way to LA or Chivas LA at seasons end and he knows it. We all know how this league works, they may have worked out thew details already for most of the post season moves.
