L.A. Times: Donovan has swine flu virus

This is real. Check out this story
Tough week for LD. Got the illness, went to Mexico, got beat on the winning goal (not sure why he was defending on the play anyway). And now, his status for Saturday against Sounders FC is up in the air.
More details on Grant Wahl’s SI.com blog. The web site broke the story.
Sounds like he was really sick during the game. Give him credit for the assist on the Davies goal. He’s a man’s man for playing through that.
Here’s hoping for a quick recovery.
