2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 9
Jared Allen Loves Mullets and Extra Mayo
Jared Allen is not the most likable guy in the NFL, but you can’t argue with the results he’s getting on the field. As a crucial part of a great Vikings defense this season, he already has 10.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles through only 8 games and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. So what is the secret to his great success? If you guessed “being a complete dick”, you might be right. But it also might be his mullet and the extra mayonnaise that is required to maintain it. Hair has been an issue for the Vikings before, if you remember Childress sporting a rug during camp.
In this clip, Allen describes his mullet as being more than just a hairstyle. He claims its a way of life. According to him, there is a rich history and tradition of mulleted men going back to…wait for it…the 1980s. Everyone remembers how awesome the 80s were, right? The fact that he seems to take this all so seriously is what makes this video so hilarious. According to Allen, someone with a mullet can never say no to extra mayonnaise. You think Dwight Schrute would have said no to extra mayo when he had that mullet? I doubt it. Oh and never forget, when he’s walking towards you, you know he’s serious, but when he’s walking the other way, that means he wants to party.
