The lockout is over and so are Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari. After setting the date to their July 2012 wedding, the reality TV star and Chicago Bears quarterback have called it off! Cutler broke the news via Facebook when he changed his relationship status to single but defended his former fiance saying, “Thank you all for the support, but if you talk bad about Kristin I will delete and block you. It’s unnecessary and heartless.”
Many Bears fans dubbed Cavallari as the Yoko Ono after Cutler had to pull out of the NFC title game from a knee injury, but the normally standoffish quarterback told his critics “Also, don’t say now I can play football, I could play football when I had her compared to when I don’t. Football is the least of my worries, so have some respect.”
Cutler and Cavallari began dating in the fall and got engaged in April. The Hills and Laguna Beach star is not taking the news well, “She got dumped,” People.com said, She’s absolutely devastated. She can’t believe this is happening.”
Before Cutler, Cavallari dated Mark Sanchez and Matt Leinart… now that she is back on the market, NFL quarterbacks beware!
Chicagoland car salesman John Stone was fired for wearing a Green Bay Packers tie to work after the Chicago Bears lost to the Packers in the NFC Championship. On Monday, Stone wore his tie to work at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn when he was approached by the General Manager to take it off. Stone thought his boss was joking but was later fired.
“I didn’t know you could get fired for wearing a tie. I’m supposed to dress up. I’m a car salesman,” Stone told WGN News in Chicago.
When asked about the incident, Webb Chevrolet General Manager Jerry Roberts said the dealership had done promotions with the Chicago Bears. “I don’t feel that it was appropriate for him to go directly in contrast with an advertising campaign that we spent a lot of money on.”
But things are looking up for Stone, not only are his Packers going to the Super Bowl, but he has been offered a job at nearby Chevrolet of Homewood.
General Manager Guy Cesario said, “Good salesmen are so hard to find…. To put somebody’s livelihood in jeopardy because of a tie is just idiotic.” Cesario relates to Stone because he is a Chicago Cubs fan who grew up on the South Side… too bad he can’t relate to Stone that he is a fan of a winning team.
Ex-NFL player Chidi Ahanotu told courts in September he is unable to pay $130,000 in legal fees he owes in a custody battle with his ex-wife, so a judge has ordered him to hand over his NFC Championship ring as compensation. Ahanotu won the ring with the St. Louis Rams in 2001.
According to Pro Football Talk, Ahanotu said, “This court system is a farce. This court wants a man to hand over his once-in-a-lifetime accomplishment to pay some damn attorney’s fees? I could see if it was going to pay something for my children or my ex-wife.”
I guess football isn’t even exempt from the rules… what’s yours is mine.
