The Girls Who Love Quarterbacks

Kathernie Webb - A.J. McCarron
One of the media sensations of the week occurred when the venerable football announcer, Brent Musberger, in a moment of boredom in the BCS National Championship game, called attention to the girlfriend of the Alabama quarterback, A.J. McCarron.  In a fit of misogynistic senility, he had the audacity to call her pretty!
"Wow you quarterbacks get all the good looking women, what a beautiful woman, whoa! If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops."
Alicia Sacramone - Brady Quinn
The feminist lobby went into highest dudgeon, denouncing Mossberger, and the whole sport of football for encouraging such nastiness:
This is some pretty standard objectification. So common–especially in the sports world–it’s almost not worth commenting on. Except that we’ve had occasion to illustrate posts with a photo of a girl holding a sign saying “I am more important than football” not once but twice this week...This is why we are not surprised when football players–or other high-profile male athletes–are accused of rape. And I think it’s also the reason that the response from the broader sports community–from coaches, administrators, fans–is so often to rush to defense of their players.
Jamie Sigler - Marc Sanchez
The female victim of this free speech crime, one Katherine Webb, is the the reigning Miss Alabama, that is to say the competitor and indeed, victor in a, what do they call it again - beauty pageant?, was not especially upset to have been noticed on national TV:
“I laughed hysterically. I was flattered … and slightly embarrassed … but I thought it was the funniest thing ever. I never expected that.”
Shockingly, attractive women seem attracted to successful quarterbacks, both at the collegiate and professional level.  I guess this goes along with the theme of good looking women being attracted to to powerful and wealthy men, such as the various dictators and Silvio Berlusconi.  A number of websites have chronicled many case of this, but I borrowed heavily from this one, while doing my own "research".

A few more examples below the fold:

Carrie Prejean - Kyle Boller

Heather Mitts - A.J. Feeley
Abby McGrew - Eli Manning
Julie Allison - Jay Cutler
Candace Crawford - Tony Romo
Lauri Schaub - Matt Schaub
and last, but not at all least...

Gisele Bundchen - Tom Brady
