USA Gymnast Alicia Sacramone: national icon


Former Notre Dame golden boy Brady Quinn has a more athletically relevant than himself girlfriend in Team USA gymnast Alicia Sacramone. Quinn made a lot of news when he came into the NFL because he broke two very unofficial records on draft day. He set a new mark for most mediocre looking girlfriend to attend draft day, and broke a second record by becoming the prospect to fall farthest below draft projection.

I know, neither of these records are objectively measurable, but you know what I mean. Although Quinn’s on-the-field performance has done nothing to make us forget his tumbling draft stock, his off-the-field doings have shot up the charts. Meet Alicia Sacramone, the soon to be icon of team USA during the 2012 London Olympics.

Quinn has gone up market with his girlfriend since 2007 draft day. He’s now with Boston gymnast Alicia Sacramone (Twitter  @ASac3)
Her Twitter bio reads:
I was team captain of my 2008 Olympic Gymnastics team, I was born and raised in Boston, MA I love fashion, music, cooking and sports!

So let’s all applaud Quinn for what he’s got going on his life romantically.

And when he think of how his NFL career is going, where it looks to be currently headed, and what his expectations were…let’s again applaud him for having a girl so many of us would love to have by side.

Quinn hasn’t seen NFL regular season action since 2009, but he is the best boyfriend. Everyone ought to have something in their life. Maybe Quinn can ride Sacramone’s coat tails?

With the Cleveland Browns, Quinn played in 14 games and started three. He was terrible. With a rating of 66.8, you can understand why he’s not beloved in the Dawg Pound and why they were happy to see him go.
