No Surprise - Jared Allen Serves on USO Tour

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!

Bleed on,
Don

Very cool. This seems like a real solid dude who's getting his priorities straight. I'm happy we ended up with him.

I agree. As a soldier, who wouldn't you rather meet than the Big Man himself!?
