Cavallari approves of Bears' first-round pick

Without a doubt, the funniest tweet during the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft on Thursday night came from the future Mrs. Jay Cutler.

Former reality TV star Kristin Cavallari expressed her excitement over the Chicago Bears drafting offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, who helped anchor the Wisconsin offensive line during his tenure. Cavallari recently became engaged to Cutler, the Bears quarterback who spent plenty of time on the ground during the 2010 season because of his team's suspect offensive line.

After general manager Jerry Angelo selected the 6-7, 327-pound former Badger, Cavallari tweeted, "Yay we got an offensive lineman!!! Go bears."

I don't know which is more classic, her exhiliration over the pick or the fact that she used the word "we."

Hope you all enjoyed the first round of the draft.
