Get a little peak behind Michael Bradley‘s steely demeanor as USMNT cameras tag along with MB90, wife Amanda and dog Oliver in Verona. The highlight for me was definitely Bradley breaking out the “baby talk” with little Ollie.
Michael Bradley‘s Italian job is underway. After stints in Holland, Germany, and England, the unnaturally bald (at least partially), often bold, midfielder will try to conquer Serie A — a league few American’s have even tried to kickabout in. Few Americans are also familiar with his new home AC Chievo. Here are a few things you should know about his new soccer team.
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.
Like his father, Michael Bradley isn’t one to blather on about his feelings. These Bradley’s are all business, well, most of the time. In this US Soccer video, Michael opens up about the ladies in his life, fiance Amanda Barletta, and mom, Lindsay Bradley. Amanda will become Mrs. Bradley on July 2, when the couple get hitched. We hope the happy couple is enjoying the Spider Skimmer TDK bought them as a wedding gift. Still no thank you card! Don’t worry, there are still plenty of items left on the registry, if you want to pick something up.
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.
