Saluting the Bradley's

Is it easier or harder for a coach to have his child on his team? And for the child?

No one answer works for all situations, but one would think that in general the higher up one rises in sports, the harder it would be on both father and child to have to face each other, the remainder of the team and the media. So, all hail the Bradleys (father Bob, who coaches in America, and son Michael, who plays his club soccer in Germany) for making it work as the United States team advances to the next round of the World Cup.

Is it easy? Not particularly.

Does it seem impossibly hard? Not impossibly.

Is it wonderful to watch? Absolutely, at least so far.
