My only question is: why would Jay Cutler be grocery shopping in Wisconsin?

I can answer that one Justin. Having lived in Chicago (Chicago, not the 'burbs) for 10 years, and now in Wisconsin for 11. 1) Sales tax. No tax on groceries in Wisconsin. 2) Food prices. I don't have a % number, but all food is MUCH cheaper in Wisconsin. This morning I bought: $2.09 for a gallon of 2% milk. $1.09 for a dozen eggs. 3) Pleasant surroundings and people - no comparison really, being polite here. 4) The Farmer's Markets in Wisconsin are phenomemal AND affordable. I say this as a BEARS fan and I'm in Chicago once or twice a month on business. No Chicago hating here. But have you tried New Glarius Spotted Cow? OMG!
