Jay Cutler and television personality girlfriend Kristin Cavallari
The story of Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler's questionable MCL knee injury has gripped the city of Chicago, and the nation, by storm. Sports fans in the windy city are on a witchhunt after losing to their rival Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship this past Sunday. It appears their quitting quarterback has been targeted to be tarred, feathered and burned at the stake in the public square.
The social networking service "Twitter" is fueling the flames in this crazy story. Whether Da Bears quarterback was seriously hurt when leaving the game in the third quarter or just "punk'd" by the Packer defense are the arguments hitting the air, data and journal waves.
Cutler, who's hasn't been well received in his young 6-year career due to his a$$itude, made matters worse by dining in public at Maestro's restaurant with his girlfriend hours after the 21-15 loss to the Pack. The crime Cutler committed:
He allegedly took the stairs to Maestro's upstairs dining area on a bad knee, but couldn't man-up and stand in the pocket throwing passes on it.
What may have been just a hungry, injured athlete trying to forget one of the most disappointing losses of his career is being spun into an in-your-face "screw da bears" flipoff by angry fans. If he'd won the game I'm sure Maestro patrons would've carried his sore a$$ upstairs to dine.
C'mon Chicago, leave that stuff to Philly and let the man heal. Here's an excerpt from an article in the Chicago Tribune today:
Or maybe the whole MCL tear story is an elaborate ruse to divert attention from the fact that Jay Cutler started the O'Leary fire, helped throw the 1919 World Series and actually is Steve Bartman.
And they wonder why the Cubbies can't win a World Series!
note: In other Chicago news a car salesman in the windy city was fired for wearing a Green Bay Packers necktie to work monday, the day after the loss. Now THIS is a story worthy of twittering.
