Even outside the game, Landon Donovan is a good sport.

The soccer star may have lost his spot on Team USA this year, but he still has a sense of humor.

And since he's not on the pitch in Brazil, he's apparently taking it easy -- sleeping late and playing FIFA.

Donovan, 32, lounges on the couch in his bathrobe, muttering, "I'm not going to Brazil..." before laughing at himself in a hilarious clip posted on YouTube today. In reality, Donovan won't have that much time for sulking -- he was hired as a commentator by ESPN.

Donovan, whose drop from the World Cup roster shocked fans, appears to be taking the burn in stride.

In another video, the Los Angeles Galaxy player is all alone in the team's offices, playing foosball and answering the phones.
