Alicia Sacramone hearts Brady Quinn

Remember Alicia Sacramone? She was the hottie gymnast from the 2008 Olympics who, as it turns out, sports a mean left hook.

Anyway, in a recent interview, she confirmed that she’s dating Browns’ QB Brady Quinn.

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.

Whatever you do, Brady — don’t make her angry.

FANIQ says that we shouldn’t underestimate the benefit of the Cardinals having Ben Roethlisberger’s old coach on their sideline.

FULL COUNT PITCH can’t believe it, but they’re saying that Jeff Kent deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

– Remember that Olympic gymnast hottie Alicia Sacramone? Well, THE BIG LEAD tells us that she now has a boyfriend. And they have the pictures to prove it. Bummer.

THE THUNDER RUN informs us that the NFL is not going to allow the military color guard to stay and watch the Super Bowl after they’re done with their duties. Unbelievable.

2008 Year-End Sports Review: What We Learned

At the end of the year, it’s always interesting to look back at all that has happened in the world of sports over the last 12 months. 2008 brought us a host of compelling sports stories, including the culmination of the Patriots’ (unsuccessful) quest for perfection, a Bejing Olympics that featured incredible accomplishments by the likes of Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and the Redeem Team, and, of course, Brett Favre’s unretirement, which managed to hold the sports news cycle hostage for a solid month or more.

As is our tradition, we’ve once again broken our Year End Sports Review into three sections. The first is “What We Learned,” a list that’s packed with a number of impressive feats. And when there are feats, inevitably there are also failures.

Don’t miss the other two parts: “What We Already Knew” and “What We Think Might Happen.”

The New England Patriots weren’t so perfect after all.

After rolling through the 2007 regular season unscathed, the Patriots entered the 2008 Super Bowl as overwhelming favorites to roll over the pesky, but seemingly inferior New York Giants. The Pats were just one win away from staking their claim as the best football team in NFL history. But thanks to a dominating Giants’ defensive line, an improbable catch by David Tyree, and a virtually mistake-free performance by Eli Manning, the unbeatable New England Patriots were beat. It’ll go down as one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history, and considering Tom Brady’s season-ending injury in 2008 cost the Pats a chance for redemption, it seems that many have forgotten how New England stood just one win away from perfection. – Anthony Stalter

Michael Phelps is part fish.

Eight gold medals in one Olympiad? No problem. Michael Phelps made the seemingly impossible look (relatively) easy en route to one of the most – if not the most – impressive Olympic performances ever. Phelps had to swim all four strokes, compete in both sprint and endurance races, and deal with the constant media attention and pressure that came along with his quest. Sure, NBC turned up the hype, but what Phelps accomplished is simply incredible. – John Paulsen

Usain Bolt is part cheetah.

First, Usain Bolt made Jamaica proud by setting a new world record (9.69) in the 100-meter sprint. Then, he broke the 12 year-old 200-meter world record with a time of 19.30 seconds. He showboated during the first race but cleaned up his act to win the second race in a professional manner. Some even say that Usain Bolt – not Michael Phelps – was the biggest story to come out of the Bejing Olympics. – JP

The Big 12 has the best quarterbacks in the nation.

The Big 12 housed some of the best quarterbacks in all of college football in 2008. Texas’s Colt McCoy, Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford, Missouri’s Chase Daniel and Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell were all considered Heisman candidates at least at one point during the season, while McCoy and Bradford are still in the running. Amazingly, Bradford and McCoy aren’t done; both will return in 2008. And although they don’t receive as much attention as the top signal callers in the conference, Kansas’s Todd Reesing and Baylor’s Robert Griffin certainly turned heads this year as well. In fact, the highly versatile Griffin is only a freshman and could make the Bears a very dangerous team for years to come. – AS

Breaking news: Alicia Sacramone is hot

So I’m watching the coverage of the women’s gymnastics from last night, and announcer Al Trautwig comments that Alicia Sacramone (whose struggles during the team competition probably cost the U.S. the gold medal) is the second most searched-for athlete (after Michael Phelps) at nbcolympics.com. He seems surprised by that fact and is oblivious to other… um… facts.

Sure, her story is interesting, but Al, come on, we both know why she’s the second most searched-for athlete, don’t we?

Before anyone gets on my case, she’s 20 years old.

Turns out she throws a mean punch too.
