Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching, and tons of guys are preparing to pop the question. If you're one of 'em, try to do it in the same damn zip code as your girlfriend. Because NFL quarterback Jay Cutler is currently underneath an avalanche of ridicule after fiancee (she said yes!) Kristin Cavallari told E! News:
"It was so silly. 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."
Now, before we pile on, it should be noted that Cutler and Cavallari were previously engaged, and reconciled after a breakup. Also, Cavallari has walked the quote back:
Stop bashing jay. He proposed in Cabo. Stop believing headlines...u have no clue. They take 1 piece of an interview to get ppl talking.

All right, we've covered our bases. Let's pile on!
It's clear, if Cavallari was quoted correctly, that Jay Cutler has suffered one too many head injuries on the field. Even if you're rekindling a romance, there should be some actual romance. Sure, a second proposal can be more casual, but you should still get down on one knee again... and not to unplug your phone from the charger.
And mailing the ring? Did he even remember to get insurance? Maybe this is why USPS canceled Saturday delivery. Jay Cutler is why we can't have nice things.
