Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is apparently a BIG Kelly Clarkson fan. Jay and Bears backup QB Caleb Hanie were reportedly at a private Kelly Clarkson concert hosted by the 101.9 The Mix. Here’s what the Trib’s Luis Arroyave had to say about the Poppy (as opposed to Punky) QB’s appearance in his About Last Night column:
Kelly Clarkson performed a five-song acoustic set at Hub 51 (51 W. Hubbard St.) on Monday in front of 101.9 FM contest winners and invited guests, including Jay Cutler. The Bears quarterback had dinner and watched as Clarkson sang locker room favorites “I Do Not Hook Up” and “My Life Would Suck Without You.”
Bears backup QB Caleb Hanie joined Cutler at the show, which means Cutler likely used the phrase “If I’m going down, you’re going down with me” a few times Monday.
Either JC is a big fan or he’s a fan of BIG Kelly:
I think she could open a better hole than current left guard Frank Omiyale, don’t you? That came out wrong, but I kinda like it, so I’ll leave it.
I heard that during the Josh McDaniels/Matt Cassel/trade drama while still in Denver, Jay turned to the American Idol winner’s tunes to connect with his deepest, most raw emotions. Here in no particular order are Jay’s favorites:
- Miss Independent
- Since U Been Gone
- Because of You
- Walk Away
- Never Again
Notice a common theme? His new favorites, since joining the Bears:
1. My Life Would Suck Without You – for his new BFF Greg Olsen
2. I Do Not Hook Up – for his receivers with whom he can’t seem to hook up
Through the month of October, my usual BEAR DOWN signoff will be in pink to raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
