I personally never would’ve pegged Jared Allen as the golfing type, but in fact, in his latest diary entry for the Pioneer-Press, the defensive end reveals that he has developed a taste for the gentlemanly game, and furthermore, has his sights set on joining a country club out in Arizona where he lives in the off-season:
I like to golf.
Ancala Country Club, in north Scottsdale — I will probably end up joining there. It’s tough and it’s narrow, and the members there are great. We have a great time there.
I have a blast out there. I put on some shorts and a collared shirt, but I don’t tuck it in.
And they love the mullet out there.
Absolutely love it.
I was worried for a second there that Jared had gone all upscale on us – then he said that he doesn’t tuck his shirt in and I knew everything was okay. Cause nothing says “I’m still a rebel” when you’re out on the golf course with a bunch of country club wankers like having your shirt hang down over your belt. Plus, when you get older, this is a good way to hide that you’re getting a gut. And I bet that country club isn’t that swanky anyway. I mean, they do absolutely love the mullet, so you know, it’s probably one of those loosey-goosey places where they have topless women at the putting greens and if you tip them enough they’ll go off in the bushes with you.
