If Chicago fans think Jay Cutler is bad at football, then they should see him sing.
The Bears quarterback headed to Wrigley Field on Saturday to watch the Cubs take on the Diamondbacks. While the ballplayers got their part of the job done, beating Arizona 4-1, Cutler left a few fans wanting when he took the microphone for a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Cutler, who has been pilloried by fans and critics alike for his non-excitable demeanor, was true to form during the song. He crooned in a drab monotone, skipping portions of the song and stumbling over some words.
Cubs fans seemed to be having a good time, though, and at least Cutler got things off on the right foot before the game when he threw out the first pitch with a little more accuracy than he gave to his note placement.
Check out the video below to see Cutler's public singing debut, with a hat tip to SportsGrid.
Who would have thought we'd have a reason to say Cutler should stick to throwing footballs?
"People think communication — a lot of times they think of the telegraph, then they think of the telephone, and then they think of telecommunications. All of it is a flow of ideas."
– Bobby Valentine, talking about communication among the Red Sox. By "people," he quite possibly meant himself, as none of us are thinking about the telegraph.
Fans were shouting out en masse for Clay Buchholz on Saturday night.

David Beckham is making crazy, awesome goals. This time, they weren't accompanied by potshots at the other team.
