Cutler doing the Windy City in style

by Leathers - Wonder if Jay Cutler ever dreamt of throwing out the first pitch of a Chicago Cubs baseball game while growing up in Santa Claus, Indiana?

If Jay did, his dream is about to come true. On Saturday, Cutler will receive the rarest of combos bestowed by the Cubs organization: he will throw out the first pitch for the Cubs-Cardinals game, then return in the 7th inning to serenade a sellout crowd with "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

Jay, here's hoping you sound a lot more like Harry Caray than Ozzy Osbourne. Also, please remember, it's Wrigley Field, not Wrigley Stadium as racer Jeff Gordon once infamously uttered.

Don't worry about the Windy City buying into Jay Cutler as their QB. A visit last week to America's third largest city reveals a town totally pumped for the upcoming Bears' season.

Cutler's casual duties Thursday only included dropping the ceremonial first puck at Chicago's NHL Stanley Cup playoff opener against Calgary in front of 22,376 roarin' Blackhawks fans in the United Center. By the way, the 'Hawks won quickly in overtime 3-2 - taking their first playoff victory in seven years.

Another former Commodore and current Bear, tackle Chris Williams, also got into the action at the Blackhawks playoff opener. During an intermission break, Williams took part in a celebrity shootout, scoring twice from center ice.
