Brown football players don’t exactly get a lot of press. Then again, most of them aren’t dating two-time Olympian and general machine of gymnastic voluptuousness Alicia Sacramone. But there’s always the exception to the rule, and ladies and gentlemen, we now know who the exception to that rule is: defensive back Eric Hunt!
(Yup. She has a boyfriend, and it’s that dude on the right.)
THE BIG LEAD broke the story, thanks to a tip off from a mutual friend of the couple. Or, perhaps, a former mutual friend of the couple. Who knows whether Sacramone was willing to have her relationship with a guy who has a truly odd-looking shaved head and may or may not have a gap in his teeth revealed. And he has a soul patch. Not that it takes away from her aforementioned voluptuousness, but hey, the guy’s a little weird looking, right?
Life’s pretty good for Jed Lowrie right now. He’s gone from the minors to full-time starting shortstop for the Boston Red Sox in a matter of weeks, and now he is making the moves on everyone’s favorite silver-medal-toting gymnast.
Alicia Sacramone will apparently attend the September 24th Sox-Indians game as Lowrie’s special guest. But Lowrie maintains that his intentions are purely innocent (Sacramone has a boyfriend). Alicia already made one stop in the Fenway dugout a couple of weeks ago when she threw out the first pitch. And, as you can see in the above photos, the Sox players were happy to, uh, check out her medal.
THE BEST WHO vaults over rumors that Vladimir Putin has split with his 50-year-old wife and landed with a 24-year-old Olympic gymnast.
A Moscow newspaper dishes that the Russian president is reportedly leaving his long-time better half Ludmilla, and getting in rhythm with rhythmic dancer Alina Kabaeva.
However, the Russian rag learns that publishing Putin’s alleged affairs can actually be bad for business (with more pics of Alina after the jump).
