FITTING TRIBUTE: SI.com’s Brian Straus noted Berhalter wanted retiring Galaxy F Landon Donovan “honored, and he wanted him honored the right way” prior to the teams’ match Saturday night. Berhalter “asked to listen to the music selected to accompany the Crew’s video salute to Donovan and found it wanting.” He “desired a more moving piece, one that would reflect the gravitas of the occasion.” Berhalter “paid close attention to the gift given by the club.” There were conversations with members of the Crew’s front office “before they decided on a frame featuring a photo, a list of Donovan’s senior appearances at Crew Stadium and a piece of the net into which he scored” his final int’l goal. Berhalter said, “This is his first game in an away stadium since he announced his retirement. Landon might not be that comfortable with it, but it’s the right thing to do” (SI.com, 8/17).
