How to stop worrying

and hit a penalty kick.

Before the Red Bulls develop a complex worthy of the English national team, here's Landon Donovan's explanation for his calm finish of the Galaxy PK.

"I know Jon Conway well. I've kicked plenty of penalty kicks against him in practice, back when we were both with San Jose. I knew he had to go to one side or another. Since it was 0-0, I wanted to do something different. It was good."

Oh, wait, I guess that doesn't really help the Red Bulls. At this point, Donovan has practice experience versus Pat Onstad, Kevin Hartman and via the national team, Troy Perkins, Matt Pickens, Zach Wells, Matt Reis, and Brad Guzan. Practice makes perfect.
