Just how crazy a day is it in the NFL? Well, Jay Cutler got engaged to girlfriend Kristin Cavallari according to a report. That's how crazy.
PEOPLE magazine reports the news amidst one of the more insane 24-hour periods in NFL history, and it's kind of a light and enjoyable note to process in the middle of such a nightmarish situation like the labor scenario that's unfolding.
Cavallari is known for her reality television work on The Hills and Laguna Beach . And, apparently, Cutler proposed while the couple were away on a weekend getaway to Cabo San Lucas.
"He surprised her with a quick trip to Cabo to ask her to marry him," PEOPLE's source says.
Ah yes. That's my old standby too -- the quick jaunt to a tropical resort in Mexico, followed by bombshelling a lucky lady with gigantic diamond. Every guy should have that in their repertoire, really.
Anyway, congrats to Cutler and Cavallari on their big news and I think I speak for the NFL-following world when I say "thank you for averting our attention away from labor negotiations."
