Jared Allen Explains His Wacky ESPYs Get-Up




From the beard to the mullet to the hats made out of dead animals, Jared Allen is all about fashion statements.  Perhaps his greatest was made at this year’s ESPYs, when he dressed in honor of a certain ’70s movie icon.  Jared explained the whole thing in an interview with a Kansas City radio station:

It was great. Me and Boomer were out last minute trying to find Dumb and Dumber tuxedos and we were going to cane sword fight down the red carpet. I thought that might bring a little class to the event. I thought “you know what, I’m in LA, might as well go with my Burt Reynolds replica jump suit from the original Longest Yard,” you know the opening scene where the girl is throwing him out of the house, and lets trash up the carpet a bit ya know? Lets bring the mullet back in full effect. It was pretty cool.

Oh, that’s more than pretty cool Jared.  That’s, like, the coolest thing anyone has ever done in the history of doing things.  Just to have a Burt Reynolds replica jumpsuit is awesome enough – but to wear it in front of thousands of people?  That takes a certain special kind of radness.

    Did you perhaps mean that it takes a special kind of … MANness? God, he’s a sexy bitch.

    I heard Childress asked Jared Allen to contact Brett Favre to welcome him to the team.  Allen is not as bad as Franophiles but his sarcastic comments didn’t help.

    Jared Allen once showed up at a highschool graduation ( a school he was going to be expelled from but left in order to maintain college eligibility) completely drunk. He then proceeded to let out a war cry and tackle the principal in front of the entire student body and its parents.

    If that story didn’t make me laugh so hard, I would think its really awful.

    But I do laugh. I laugh the same way I laugh when he lassos the bastards on the other side of the ball.

    Damn I love that football player.

    How about a poll
    How Sick Are You Of Dan Zinski?

    I vote disgusted.

  • Jim

    That is dumbest poll I have ever seen.  What a disgrace Danzinski.   You have a negative question, with 3 negative answers and the only postive answer being indifferent.  Funny how you can manufacture any poll, and also basically manufacture YOUR intended results.
