Brady Quinn may have been surpassed by Tim Tebow on the quarterback depth chart for the Broncos, but he's still excelling in another realm. Following his team's home loss to the Chargers Sunday, Quinn took a red eye flight to be with girlfriend Alicia Sacramone, who had surgery Monday in Charlotte, N.C., on her ruptured Achilles' tendon.
The extra effort earned him bonus points with his gymnast girlfriend.
"Best boyfriend award goes to Brady Quinn for taking the red eye from Denver to be here for my surgery today...just another reason why I love him," she tweeted Monday.
The two have been dating since 2009. Maybe Quinn was just returning the favor to Sacramone who used to fly to Cleveland to support Brady when he was the quarterback for the Browns.
Either way, it's pretty clear they're extremely supportive of one another.
Say what you want about Quinn's ability as a quarterback, but you can't say he's not a good boyfriend. He went out of his way to ensure he was by his girlfriend's side at a difficult time.
The London Olympics begin in 10 months, so Sacramone's status for the Summer Games is in question. But the good news is that Brady appears to have found a girl who appreciates him, unlike his last girlfriend.
Fist pound to Shutdown Corner for the story.
