Birthday Greetings: Stuart Holden Turns 26

One of our favourite USMNT hotties is a year older today, and we need all Kickettes to put your thinking caps on as we hastily rearrange our originally planned birthday celebrations for Bolton Wanderers ‘baller of the year.

Although Holden’s been out of action due to injury since March, as he informs us on Twitter, he’s just resumed training on grass today. Hurrah! A Premier League season without his elfin ruggedness and to-die-for hybrid Scottish/Texan accent wouldn’t be the same.

As is usually the case, we wanted to deliver his birthday pastries and tickles in person, but due to the cake shop’s errors as well as our own, we were prevented from doing so. So silly, these restraining order things.

In any event, because of today’s earlier snafus, the hell-raising half of our headquarters has been fixated on picking alternative birthday gifts. Other ideas include cowboy hats, birds, skinny ties, and sweets.

Dear readers, as you join us in wishing Mr Holden the happiest of birthdays, be sure to disclose which aforementioned not-as-good-but-it’ll-have-to-do option you prefer. Remember: we need to avoid arrest while still freely loving Stu, jorts and all.

    Stuart's replied/re-tweeted me on Twitter, a few times, and with well over 100.000 followers, to notice me more than once made me very very happy indeed. I wished him a happy birthday on there, and I will do again on here…

    Happy Birthday Stu!!! P.S. You're gorgeous…

  3. I have a feeling he is a lot of the same to his Bolton teammates and they can't wait to see him back on the field for good.

    Poor Bastian, what will happen when he'll check out Kickette blog and nothing it's written about his b-day?

    Stuart Holden is SUCH a babe, isn't he?

    Wait, that's kinda of an understatement.

    Happy birthday Stu the most adorkable player ever! :-)

    He's adorable, and the abs are nothing to scoff at, but I'd marry him for his accent alone. I could happily listen to that man speak for the next sixty years.

    So glad to see he is coming along well! Hoping that the change in the USMNT coach doesn't mean a change in this guy appearing in the player pool, because he is a favorite on the team- great for our morale. I have a feeling he is a lot of the same to his Bolton teammates and they can't wait to see him back on the field for good. :)
