Alicia Sacramone, one of the darlings of the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team, has given out the Best Boyfriend Award to her significant other, Denver Broncos back-up quarterback Brady Quinn. Sacramone tweets:
“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.”
The surgery Sacramone speaks of is because of a ruptured Achilles tendon she suffered while preparing for the World Championships. But it sounds like everything is going well – she tweeted 10 hours after her Brady tweet, “Surgery went well, Dr. Anderson is the absolute best!”
Sacramone won’t be tumbling in the Worlds, the final rounds of which are currently taking place in Tokyo, but as the U.S. women were in first place after the qualifying round, she may be spotted on the floor in London in 2012.
