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.
