New Low in Jay Cutler Saga: Denver Sports Writer Becomes Nashville's Creepiest Tourist

It's hard to know what's worse: Stalking a professional athlete. Or getting paid to stalk a professional athlete and doing a really bad job. But Sam Adams, a former sports reporter for the recently deceased Rocky Mountain News and current sports reporter for web-only paper InDenver, makes a pretty strong case for the latter.

In what appears to be an actual assignment and not just an excuse to bill the company for an out-of-town wedding, Adams came to Nashville to speak to Jay Cutler, the Denver Broncos' quarterback currently doing his best to force a trade. The problem: He didn't really do his homework.

I came here searching for answers -- fishing in the dark, if you will, for Cutler to hear the words come directly from his mouth. Cutler has an offseason home in Nashville. I had no address or phone number to reach him. Shoot, I had no idea if he was even in town. His agent, James "Bus" Cook ignored my calls. It seems ol' Bus only recognizes the letters E-S-P-N on his caller ID.

Weird. When we were writing a story about Vince Young it only took two calls to hear back from Bus. Guess he also recognizes P-I-T-H on his caller ID.

Read the rest of the article if you want. But only if you'd like to find out some earth-shattering facts about Nashville. Namely, that there's live music on Broadway, white dudes love Tin Roof and it's hard to find one guy in a town of 600,000 with no leads and no insider info. Shocking!
