Michael Bradley’s plans for the beginning of 2011 are finally set. The 23 year-old has left his more than a mouthful German club Borussia Mönchengladbach for the easier to pronounce Aston Villa.
After his club season concludes this spring, he’ll join the USMNT in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. A mighty important tourney since the winner gets entry into the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil.
And then, perhaps the biggest moment of his summer. One week after he presumably hoists the Gold Cup trophy (it’s indeed a large gold cup, unlike the World Cup trophy) Bradley ties the knot. That’s right, Michael found himself a mate.
The Denim Kit wants to wish the happy couple a long and prosperous life together. And Michael, we have great respect for the steely edge you bring to the field every time you suit up for your country. Don’t listen to the haters. (Actually, do listen. We know if fuels your fire) We want you on that wall, we need you on that wall.
