Like much of America, Raiders tight end Colton Underwood spent the last month watching the Olympics and admiring Aly Raisman. Unlike most of America, he thought he might have a chance to land a date with the beautiful 22-year-old.
Underwood happens to be teammates with Andrew East, who is married to Shawn Johnson. Johnson, of course, is an Olympic gold medalist in her own right and has reportedly taken it upon herself to find a man for Raisman.
That's how Underwood got his chance to ask Raisman out.
Underwood hits all the right notes here. He respects Raisman's accomplishments, as she's said she wants, but he obviously isn't a fame chaser. Underwood is an athlete too, which Raisman says she likes. And, as she puts it, he's "very cute."
No word yet on when they'll make this date happen, but they've already taken their flirtations to Twitter.
