Donovan labeled "US reject," Kah heals Nagbe with a kiss, more "questionable" hair in MLS | SIDELINE
You probably didn't get to watch every MLS match this weekend. That's what we're here for. Here's what you missed, while you were doing who knows what.
DONOVAN, THE "US REJECT?": Last week it was Seattle Sounders midfielder Brad Evans, fresh off being cut as the US national team's World Cup roster shrunk to 23, who was pelted with "US reject" chants during a road match in Vancouver.
This week, in what was predictable from the moment he was left off Jurgen Klinsmann's final roster for Brazil, Landon Donovan was the target of Chicago Fire fans. His LA Galaxy teammate AJ DeLaGarza didn't appreciate the sentiment either.
Think I lost 5 pounds today. Difficult conditions. Leave with a point, but we need to start winning on the road. The "US Reject" chant tho..

Just as last week, we ask: "US reject" chants aimed at Donovan — fair or foul?
KAH'S HEALING POWER: Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe is fouled just as often, if not more often, than any player in MLS. Sometimes they’re soft, tactical fouls; other times they’re excessive fouls that endanger Nagbe’s physical well-being.
But one man always has Nagbe’s back through all of the fouling madness: Timbers defender Pa Modou Kah. Whether the enforcer feels he needs to step in and put an end to any nonsense, or provide Nagbe with something a little more…well, personal…Kah’s always there for his teammate and friend. (Make sure you turn the sound on for the below Vine.)
DONOVAN AND THE BRIDE: Donovan and his Galaxy teammates had some business to take care of on Sunday — picking up a 1-1 draw against the Fire (WATCH HERE) and the 137th MLS goal of Donovan’s career (WATCH HERE) — but that didn’t keep the league’s all-time leading goalscorer and friends from making dreams come true.
What sane, American soccer bride wouldn’t want to be photographed, in her wedding dress, with the all-time greatest USMNT player standing just over her shoulder? This lucky lady saw the opportunity and took full advantage of the situation.

WHAT WAS THE QUESTION AGAIN?: "Questionable" hairstylings seem to be all the rage these days — just ask Dominic Oduro, who caught some serious grief last week. This week, it was Toronto FC forward Gilberto who had the most "questionable" cut of the weekend.
can anyone tell me why Gilberto has a ? shaved into the back of his head? #TFC

Some of the answers the question mark solicited were quite funny.
