Sacramone: 'best boyfriend' award goes to Brady

At some point during the first half of Sunday's Chargers-Broncos game, as Kyle Orton was doing everything he could to get benched, the thought must've crossed backup quarterback Brady Quinn's mind. Maybe he'd be the guy to replace Orton.

After all, there was talk that Quinn, after a solid preseason, had passed Tim Tebow on the depth chart. Turns out, that was a figment of our imagination. On Monday, Broncos head coach John Fox spoke about the decision to go with Tebow over Quinn on Sunday.

"I think sometimes that’s not reality. I think the call to go with Tim was obviously something we discussed before, but I didn’t want that outwardly known regardless of perception. I think we kind of showed our hand.”

So, yes, things could be better on the work front for Quinn. But the former Browns first-round pick didn't let professional setbacks affect his personal life. So while no one will be calling Quinn "NFL starting quarterback" anytime soon, he is a recent recipient of the "Best Boyfriend" award, as bestowed upon him by girlfriend Alicia Sacramone, former Olympic gold-medalist.

Let's see you top that, Tebow.

(In related news: ESPN's QBR stat has now been readjusted to account for Quinn's chivalry and he's now ahead of Tebow in the Week 5 rankings.)

OMG, Alicia Sacramone totes hearts Brady Quinn

Posted by Will Brinson

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?
