It’s official: Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone is dating Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn. I sensed this yesterday, when I felt a great disturbance in The Force; as if millions of Brady Quinn-is-gay jokes cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
Sacramone made this revelation during an interview with U.S. Gymnastics, where she got through the entire thing without crying. She’s currently in training to make a comeback (for the 2010 Visa Championships), and Quinn is currently starting for the Browns, doing his best not to fall off the balance beam, as it were.
Rams starting QB Kyle Boller is dating former Miss California Carrie Prejean, and I don’t know why this ran through my head, but Sacramone could totally kick Prejean’s ass, couldn’t she? it would be total devastation. Do the Rams play the Browns? Sadly no.
Here are the fateful quotes:
USA Gymnastics: I hear you’ve been attending a lot of Cleveland Browns football games lately. Can you talk about that?
Alicia: Yes, I have become a football fan. I was always a football fan but never into it too much until now. I’m dating Brady Quinn (the quarterback for Cleveland) so I travel to Cleveland on Sunday afternoons for home games.
USA Gymnastics: Has Brady visited you at the gym?
Alicia: No, but he said he’s excited to come to a gymnastics meet.
USA Gymnastics: How did you two meet?
Alicia: We met at a charity event through a mutual friend.
Then there was this:
USA Gymnastics: Are you planning to go back to school?
Alicia: I am planning to go back to school. I’m waiting on some transfer stuff to come in before I decide where I’m going to go.
So that means Sacramone won’t be going back to Brown University, it appears. Too bad; some dude was just this close to sitting between Alicia Sacramone and Hermione Granger in poly sci.
