Jay Cutler is making moves on his butcher shop idea

Jay Cutler is making moves on his butcher shop idea

Although the Season 2 finale of "Very Cavallari" aired on Sunday night, we may already have one big Jay Cutler storyline for Season 3.

In last week's episode, Cutler mentioned to Kristin Cavallari — the show's namesake and his wife — that he wants to open a butcher shop. The former Bears quarterback has been searching for something to do in football retirement, a common sight in Season 2 of the show. This week, he may have taken a step forward in that search.

Cutler and Cavallari visited an office space that could become "Cuts," a hypothetical name that Cavallari thought of for the butcher shop. She seemed thrilled at Cutler making moves towards the butcher shop becoming a reality. 

“The first time we had a conversation about the butcher shop was actually years ago," Cavallari said. "It is surprising to me that he’s actually doing something about it. He’s putting in the effort to make it happen. So all of this stuff is a very good sign that he actually wants to do something.” 

This episode also revealed that Cutler's chicken-hatching completion percentage is not as high as one might hope.

"Jay was trying to hatch 20-something chickens, I think, and we only got four. But we also have a bunch of baby ducks," Cavallari said. "I don't know what the long-term game plan is here with the ducks. I do know that the ducks are my favorite to this day."

"Ducks are much cooler," Cutler said.

That they are, Jay. That they are. Come Season 3, we'll be on the lookout for a plethora of ducks (and maybe some chickens) along with Cuts to be further in its development.

Mitchell Trubisky breaks social media silence to support George Floyd protests

Mitchell Trubisky is using his platform to support Blackout Tuesday and the protests against racial injustice in the United States.

In the post, Trubisky concedes he will never truly understand the struggles black people experience in America, but he stands by them during this time of unrest.

“Throughout my life I’ve been blessed to share the field and locker room with countless black men,” Trubisky said in the post. “These men and teammates have become family to me. Although I could never understand what they have to experience I empathize with them and love them like brothers. I stand with my brothers and sisters in the fight against racial injustices.

“We need to do more. We must do better. Posts, tweets, and statements aren’t enough. We need to take action. We must take the steps together to make systematic changes to prevent these evil acts from occurring.

“Love is stronger than hate. Peace and Unity will overcome violence. Black Lives Matter. #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd”

Trubisky broke his social media silence to make his statement. He hadn’t posted on Instagram since Dec. 19, and besides retweeting teammates, friends and brands, he still hasn’t posted on Twitter since May 2019.

Bears release statement from George McCaskey on George Floyd's death

Bears release statement from George McCaskey on George Floyd's death

On Monday evening, the Bears released a statement from George McCaskey regarding the recent death of George Floyd: 

A week ago another unarmed African-American man died at the hands of a white police officer. We are witnessing the anger and frustration play out in protests across the nation, including Chicago. We must do more than wring our hands and hope it doesn’t happen again. As an organization, we have addressed it internally by offering unconditional support to our family of staff, coaches and players, and today Ryan Pace and Coach Nagy spent the allotted two hours of team meeting time listening to and healing together with our players and the coaching staff. Through our voice, our actions and our resources, it is our obligation to lead. We will continue to work with our player-led social justice committee to provide funding and exposure to local organizations dedicated to empowering communities that have been oppressed for far too long. We’re proud to support organizations like BUILD Chicago, I Grow Chicago, My Block, My Hood, My City, and Youth Guidance, among others, who are doing great work in these communities and we encourage fans to partner with us in supporting them. Our commitment is to continue to be an active participant in change.

Though they don't use his name specifically, it's clearly a reference to Floyd's death, as they Bears joined (most) teams across the country in issuing statements condemning the abuse of power among law enforcement officials.
