Browns rookie quarterback Brady Quinn reached into the back of his locker, pulled out the cardinal-and-gold No. 10 jersey and gritted his teeth.
“This,” he said, “is going to hurt.”
Quinn, the former Notre Dame star, then slipped the Southern California jersey over his head and felt his skin crawl.
“That’s why I’ve got extra layers on,” he said. “So it doesn’t actually touch any part of my body.”
Quinn had to wear USC’s colors on Wednesday after losing a bet with former Trojans quarterback Rodney Peete over last week’s game between Notre Dame and Southern Cal. …
Surely, Quinn got some points in the wager. After all, Notre Dame is 1-7 and USC is 6-1.
“It’s a pride bet,” Quinn said. “C’mon now. You don’t bet points. I got faith in my guys.” …
When he finished with his interview, Quinn quickly ripped off the jersey and slam dunked it into a nearby garbage can.
Mike Tran should sent Brady a sympathy card. :)
