Jared Allen, unlike many of us, took the whole Mayan apocalypse prediction thing seriously. Very seriously. And when you bring in Kenny Mayne, the second-best SportsCenter anchor of all time, to interview him, things get real serious, real fast. OK, actually, they get real absurd, real dry, and real hilarious.
Thursday Night Fights: Vikings’ Jared Allen and Bucs’ Donald Penn Go At It, Allen Immediately Gets Sack
Jared Allen is not a man you want to make angry on the football field. Not even because he’s 6-6 and 270 pounds – though that’s certainly a good reason for an average-sized person not to mess with him, fellow football players, especially the offensive linemen he goes up against, actually outweigh him by a fair amount. No, the reason not to get Jared Allen is because he’ll take his anger out on you professionally.
Jared Allen seems like the type of player to haze rookies. At the start of the fourth quarter of last night’s preseason matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers, a mic’d up Allen approached undrafted rookie defensive tackle Tydreke Powell (not Quentin Saulsberry, as the announcer proclaims) demanding a tune. Except Powell has a fantastic voice and belts out a quick “I’m so, happy, to be right here with Jared,” with a well-placed touch of vibrato. You’ll be a better person for having taken a listen.
Vikings defensive end Jared Allen played his college football at Idaho State. It says so here, and everything. So why, during player intros for tonight’s Pro Bowl, did Allen list his alma mater as…not that?
The weather outside my Philadelphia window certainly is frightful. Driving on Broad Street at midnight, even when there’s no snow, hardly delightful…hence the postponing of last night’s scheduled Eagles-Vikings game.
Brett Favre, possible NFL quarterback and Vampire King of Mississippi, was goaded out of his house by his teammates this afternoon in an attempt to convince him to play a little football for the Minnesota Vikings this season.
It’s always nice to have something considered “the most famous in your state.” Today, Minnesota mourns the loss of one its prized possessions: Minnesota Vikings Defensive End Jared Allen’s Mullet.
