Brady Quinn, former quarterback for the Notred Dame Fighting Irish and recently the 22nd pick in this year's NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns (Go Browns!), will be receiving a one-year loan of two HUMMER H2 SUVs from General Motors. GM put out a press release today that didn't provide many details as to why Quinn is being given the SUVs, but HUMMER was the sponsor of the 2007 NFL Draft, so perhaps it's a consolation prize for his infamous slide on draft day. No word was offered on whether Quinn will get the 2007 or 2008 models with their updated interiors. Quinn will take possession of his loaner vehicles this Monday, May 14th, at the Central HUMMER East dealership in Beachwood, Ohio. That's a stone's throw away from where this blogger lives, so maybe I'll show up and see if Brady wants to toss the pigskin around.

      "AM General is located in South Bend (where Notre Dame is) and Brady Quinn has been sponsored by Hummer for the last couple of months."

      Additionally, the H2 (Unlike the H3) is built in the AM General plant in Mishawaka Indiana, which is near Notre Dame/South Bend.

      He was the 22nd pick. 2 H2s.

      Work it out for yourself.

      In addition, I would have to imagine the 2nd pick (2) and 4th picks (2*2) turned GM down.

      GM and Hummer made this announcement the day before the draft. At that time a lot of people thought Brady Quinn was going to be the first draft pick. Maybe they just bet on the wrong horse.

      If he's really all that on the field, let him buy his own stinkin' car.

      What does he need two for more importantly.

      I really wouldn't mind if he donated one to me.
