You can see where Michael Bradley gets it.
Toronto FC’s captain has long been known as a straight shooter, someone who doesn’t mince words, and lays the brutal truth bare. He doesn't shoot from the hip, but rather carefully considers what he’s going to say before he opens his mouth, knowing his words carry a lot of weight in this town. He speaks with a piercing and refreshing honesty that is exceedingly rare in pro sports, the mundane cliché not at all part of his verbal repertoire.
The apple, it would appear, doesn’t fall far from the tree. Bob Bradley, Michael’s father, was formally unveiled as TFC’s new head coach and sporting director on Wednesday, taking over double duty in the wake of the departures of Javier Perez and Ali Curtis earlier in the week.
