Sweet Brady Quinn Has Big Win With Girlfriend & Women Everywhere

Brady Quinn may be embroiled in an NFL controversy right now, but his heart is very much in the right place. Even though his career is tanking and he is taking a backseat to athletes with less experience, he still made it a priority to be at the side of his girlfriend, elite gymnast Alicia Sacramone, who ruptured her Achilles tendon while in Tokyo preparing for the world championships and needed surgery. 

Can I get a collective awwww?

I mean, seriously. This almost (almost!) makes me care about football for a second because really? How many football players would do this?


She had her surgery Monday, and tweeted that Quinn will be by her side.

Best boyfriend award goes to @BQ9 for taking the red eye from Denver to be here for my surgery today...just another reason why I love him.

He IS a good boyfriend. I mean, I know husbands who don't do that for their wives who are in the same town, even when they DON'T have to work. And while the sports blogs may mock him and say he has nothing else to do, I think it's pretty admirable.

We hear about so many bad sports players who beat their girlfriends and cheat on them and then skip out on child support. So credit where credit is due. This is a good boyfriend. He and Sacramone have been together for a little over a year and he is clearly prioritizing her and her needs over his bad weekend.

He could have easily skipped it. But Sacramone probably needed him emotionally. Achilles surgery is no small thing and it may mean she won't be able to meet the goals she set for herself. In other words, she needs a lot of love and support.

This is the mark of a good man, a keeper, if you will. If he were a bank teller and she were a grocery store clerk, I'd be saying the same thing. The fact that they are well-known, successful athletes doesn't make it any more or less romantic. It just means we hear about it.

Good men are hard to find and Quinn may not play the best ball in town, but he will still have the most important success if he keeps this up.

Do you think this is sweet?
