Jay Cutler continues to prove he’s one of the classiest players in the NFL. When he’s not whining on the field about calls he didn’t get, or shoving his offensive lineman for not playing the way he thinks they should, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is apparently proposing to women via text message. Cutler is engaged to reality television star Kristin Cavallari, but while she ended up agreeing to marry him, she says the way he asked her wasn’t really the way she had always dreamed.
“It was so silly.” Cavallari told E! News. “I was in the airport, leaving Chicago. We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like, ‘Oh, shall we get married?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, OK.’ And then he sent my ring in the mail. So I actually had my ring sitting at home for a couple of weeks before I put it on.”
I don’t know about you, but this the the way I always dreamed of being proposed to. There’s nothing more romantic than asking a woman in passing and over the phone if she wants to marry you and then FedEx-ing her a ring.
Manti Te’o, eat your heart out.
But hey, don’t judge Jay Cutler for being too busy in life to stop everything so he can traditionally propose to a woman. To hell with tradition, Jay Cutler is a pioneer, and is a hero to douchebags everywhere who will likely attempt to re-create Cutler’s proposal trick just to say they did.
And let’s not blame Cutler for proposing via text message rather than getting on his knee to do it. If you’ve seen the man play behind that offensive line in Chicago, you’ll know that he has no knees left to propose on.
Cue the lame proposal jokes the next time Jay Cutler takes a knee on the field — but the Bears have to actually be winning a game for that to happen so it’s one step at a time, I suppose.
