Morning Read: Pies in Canada, Soccer in Florida
Michael Bradley gets an Italian education while Jay DeMerit gets a present from a teammate. Elsewhere, could soccer be coming to an area near Disney World? And Dempsey goes fishing.
Michael Bradley, sorry, Serie A goalscorer Michael Bradley, has Valencia interested but he wants to stay at Roma. "Bradley, I hope, is close to becoming one of the pillars of this Roma team. I think it was one of Michael's best performances if we evaluate it in context. He was coming back from a long injury at a time of difficulty for the team, and he scored his first goal for the club," his agent Paolo Alberto Faccini tells ESPN. That seems smart, seeing as Bradley just got there and all.
