Jay Cutler Joins the Pro Athlete Hall of Shame

kristen cavallari jay culterBy now you've heard the news that Kristin Cavallari and her Chicago Bears quarterback boyfriend Jay Cutler have broken off their engagement. Single tear. Not! Kristin totally dodged a bullet. Athletes are the biggest dirtbags in the game, and it would have only been a matter of time before Cutler was involved in some sort of sexting scandal with an ESPN intern.

That said, I'm sure Kristin's still sad, which is totally understandable, because she, you know, registered for all this stuff and thought she was getting married in a few months and all. So, in an effort to cheer her up, I've compiled this list of five of the biggest rotten, no good, philandering athletes. Crises averted, Kristin, crisis averted.


brett favre

Brett Favre. The most famous of the Green Bay quarterback's scandals was his most recent, in which he sent naked, "creepy" photos of himself to Jets employee Jenn Sterger, but his unscrupulous behavior spans way beyond that. Just ask his wife, Deanna, who wrote about his icky ways in her book, Don't Bet Against Me! Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and in Life. Or you could, you know, just read it.  

tony parker

Tony Parker. What's dumber than cheating on your wife? Cheating on your wife when she looks like Eva Longoria. What's dumber than cheating on your wife when she looks like Eva Longoria? Cheating on your wife when she looks like Eva Longoria with your teammate's wife. Smooth move, Parker.

alex rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez. Yankees fans may love him because he tears it up on the field, but his ex-wife Cynthia filed for divorce because he tore it up behind her back with an exotic dancer and Madonna. Looks like Cameron Diaz dodged a bullet, too.

tiki barber

Tiki Barber. Like father, like son. In the past, Barber had spoken out about his inability to forgive his father for cheating on his mother, saying he "abandoned" her, yet that's exactly what he did to his wife 11 of years, Ginny Cha, while she was pregnant with twins. Classy. The NFL player-turned-NBC correspondent left Cha for a 23-year-old former intern at NBC. I'm telling you, it's always the interns.

tiger woods

Tiger Woods. Really, do I even need to explain?

Who have I left out? You know you want to add to the list.
