I don't have a history with Jared Allen. He became known to me on the day the Vikings 'drafted' him by trading their first round draft pick for him. In 2008, he was a rock star for the Vikings, impressed everyone, and made the Vikings look very smart for getting him.
I think he's been a great addition to the Purple. He had a Pro Bowl Season and now I see he's having a Pro Bowl off-season, too! Today, I received my NFL newsletter. And guess who is in the picture I saw with the "USO Tour blog: After long trip, NFL stars arrive in Kuwait." heading?
Yep, it's Mister Motor and it's no surprise that he's in Kuwait supporting our troops. It's great to see a Viking doing great things all year long. Check out the story and when you see Jared, tell him thanks! Thanks, Jared!
