Bradley Scores In Heerenveen Cup Loss To Ajax

Michael Bradley scored Heerenveen's consolation goal 20 minutes from time, as his team bowed out of the Dutch cup with a 3-1 loss at Amsterdam's ArenA earlier today. It was Bradley's fifth goal in 12 games for Heerenveen, including two each in Eredivisie and UEFA Cup competition. Not bad at all! I didn't watch the game (I have a day job, remember? And besides, it wasn't on TV in the U.S. anyway) but it sounds like a pretty one-sided affair: Ajax took the lead in the eighth minute and doubled up 20 minutes later. By the time Bradley scored, his team was down 3-0. By the way, you can watch Bradley's goal here. Don't say I never did anything for you. It was the second time Heerenveen played the Dutch juggernaut this year. They went down 4-1 the first time, also at ArenA on Aug. 26. If Bradley keeps this up, he might just land at a top flight European team soon. Which is not to slight Heerenveen and the experience he is getting there. But what's with those, uh, not-entirely-heterosexual hearts they have on their jerseys?
