After spending time in Italy with Serie A side AS Roma, Michael Bradley is now playing a little closer to home. The New Jersey native joined Toronto FC of Major League Soccer last month, ending his time Europe that also saw Bradley suit up for clubs in England and Germany.
A Canadian team may write Bradley’s paychecks now but when hockey teams from the United States and Canada met last week in the Olympics it was Team USA the 26-year-old sided with. Unfortunately for Bradley, Canada was victorious in the semifinal matchup. That meant he would have to pay up on a bet placed with Toronto FC assistant coach Jim Brennan.

Atleast Bradley was a good sport and smiled for the photo.
Michael Bradley and Jim Brennan weren’t the only ones with something at stake. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper put cases of beer on the line.
