Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler were spotted hanging out together again. That sound you hear is my heart breaking. No big deal. (Chicago Tribune)
Here's Goldy Gopher's entry video for the 2012 National Mascot Championship. I didn't even know that was a thing.
And this goes out to Kristin Cavallari, from me.
