Brad Guzan made the difficult decision to skip the Gold Cup this summer to get married. Despite Tim Howard‘s lackluster play (at times), Guzan likely wouldn’t have seen the field and his position as the number two keeper going into the 2014 World Cup cycle is secure — the third goalkeeper spot is completely wide open.
And based on Bob Bradley‘s decision to let Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan attend their sister’s wedding during the Gold Cup, Guzan is in little danger of drawing the coach’s ire.
However, if Tim Howard had gotten hurt and Guzan missed his opportunity to help his country, he would have faced a major backlash. That did not happen, and now Guzan can move on with his career for club and country with new wife Bre.
The happy couple got married June 18 in Chicago and this slickly produced wedding video “trailer” (I guess that’s a thing now) has made its way onto the internet. Kudos to the folks over at Delack Media group for this fine piece of work.

Guzan is still on the books at Aston Villa, but he’ll likely be leaving in the summer transfer window — hopefully, somewhere that he’ll get regular first team action. The latest scuttlebutt is that he’ll be sent crosstown to Birmingham in a swap for Ben Foster.
And don’t forget another US National-teamer gets married this Saturday — Michael Bradley. We hope Michael and Amanda are enjoying their elegant Spider Skimmer courtesy of TDK.
