Must every sport be tinged by some sort of sex scandal?

Apparently so, though this time the scandal – the fathering of a “love” child by a U.S. World Cup soccer star whilst still technically married to his wife, a television actress – pales in comparison to the actions of a certain golfer.

It’s not depressing enough that the USA soccer team conceded defeat to Ghana during a frustrating game on Saturday, oh no. Now today comes word that shining star Landon Donovan has knocked up a woman who’s not his estranged wife.

Landon Donovan and Bianca Kajilch before they broke up. Will she take him back, even if he's fathered a child with another woman?

Sports Illustrated reports that a British tabloid is ready to publish a story alleging Landon impregnated an Englishwoman.  While not technically with his wife, “Rules of Engagement” star Bianca Kajilch, they are not divorced, either. In fact, Landon’s affection for Bianca is still obvious, because at the end of the US’s winning game against Algeria last week, Landon gave her a shout-out.

Thankfully, Landon is enough of a man to acknowledge that he may have indeed *scored* with another woman.

“I was informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support,” he told Sports Illustrated. “This is a private matter and I will refrain from further comment at this time.”

How will this affect any potential reconciliation between Landon and Bianca? Well, I’m no Magic 8 ball, but the chances don’t look good. I just don’t understand what it is with these guys… have any of them ever heard of protection?

Update: Good news! Landon confirmed in mid-July that he is not the father of any unborn children.

“I know now that I will not be a dad any time soon, which is good news for me,” the soccer star told E!

Whew. That’s the relief. Now can we please take measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again?
