Michael Bradley

The USMNT won off the field and off Thursday night. Leading the way was the team's captain, who wore a rainbow armband to honor the LGBT community and victims of the shootings in Orlando.

Typically, the colors of these armbands are unique to clubs and countries around the world. But Bradley's rainbow armband stood in contrast, and featured "ONE NATION" written on it.

Before the game, the USMNT also posted their own tribute video to the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Although much of the sports world was fixated on the NBA Finals, the LGBT community gave an overwhelming ovation to Bradley's endeavors on social media.

To top it off, the USMNT defeated Ecuador in Seattle, 2-1, to advance to the Copa America semifinals. Clint Dempsey and Gyasi Zardes had the goals for The Yanks. Bradley and the U.S. get the winner of Saturday's Argentina-Venezuela match in a Tuesday night showdown in Houston.
