Lest we get carried away with the excitement of real football on the field, how's a little gossipy item sound to you? Horrible? Too bad. Because if you blog for a living and you get a chance to talk about Brady Quinn, you do it. Period. No questions asked.
You know who else will talk about B-Q no questions asked? Alicia Sacramone, his ladyfriend, and semi-famous gymnast. And she did just that following a recent event that she was part of, the video of which you can watch here .
Which is also where my pal Ryan Wilson points out, easily the funniest part of the whole exchange (which is totally worth listening to, m'kay) is that Sacramone didn't know who Quinn was when they met.
"It wasn't until she returned home to suburban Boston and consulted her father Fred that things clicked.
"He told me, 'I'm Brady, and I watched you at the Olympics and wanted to say that I really appreciated what you did' and yada yada," Sacramone said. "I went home and asked my dad if he knew who Brady Quinn was, and he said, 'Alicia, he's on my fantasy football team.'" Really not worth asking whether or not Fred won his league's championship, right?
