1. Jay Cutler is a bad NFL quarterback. I mean, there's literally a video titled, "Jay Cutler Interception Machine" on YouTube.
Thanks to Cutler's propensity for often throwing to the wrong team, Twitter had a grand old time after it was announced that the Dolphins were taking Cutler away from Fox (where he was supposed to be part of the network's No. 2 announcing crew) for a one-year, $10 million contract. This was some of the social media site's best work in a long time. Here are some highlights.
2. Charles Oakley on averaged 9.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for his career, but he is an absolute legend in New York. He added to his icon status today with this tweet.
