Bears quarterback Jay Cutler allowed a stylist to remove the bangs from his forehead all in the name of fashion. Apparently they liked what they saw, as he's the new cover boy for the luxury lifestyle mag Michigan Avenue.
This continues a great tradition of sports journalism and envelope-pushing photography for Michigan Avenue, which previously profiled AOL national sports columnist Jay Mariotti, dressing him up like a hip college professor in the process.
Cutler reveals to interviewer Susanna Negovan that he's single, has diabetes and won't be posing for any magazine covers ... after this one, of course (much to the dismay of the rest of the other players in the cut-throat luxury magazine subculture here).
The general consensus around the newsroom is that Cutler may be treading dangerously into Gordon Beckham territory in the coif department.
