It took until the 51st minute, but the Gold Cup match between the United States and Canada finally has its first booking and it is no surprise that the temperamental Michael Bradley was shown the yellow. It wasn't even Bradley who was called for the initial foul on the play. Steve Cherundolo was called for pulling the Canadian attacker before Bradley came across to take the ball, but he wasn't happy with the call. He argued, he held onto the ball and he did just enough to annoy the ref into earning a yellow card.
You would think that Bradley would be a little smarter considering his last Gold Cup experience. Bradley picked up a red card in the 2007 Gold Cup semifinals and was suspended for the final, which the U.S. won. He may not have picked up a red card here, but he put himself another caution away from ejection or a caution in the next two matches away from a suspension.
