I’m sure all of you are probably wondering what in the Sam Hill do Vikings and mullets have to do with weddings… but please, I urge all of you to stick with me here. And I do this for a number of reasons, but if for nothing else, stick with me for the sheer fact that the most infamous ’do(not) ever: the mullet is a part of the story… and anything that puts business in the front and a party in the back deserves a head nod at the very least.
Now, let me first begin by saying, I’m a HA-HUGE football fan. Ingrained in my blood, I get the night before Christmas butterflies every time I step out for a tailgate. I love the rugged nature and American-ness that football brings to the sport’s world. I love that it’s something my Mister and I can watch (and enjoy!) together. I love that it’s associated with finger foods, cold brews and delicious dips covered in cheese, but most of all, I love football for the good ‘ole boys who play it… especially the ones rockin’ a mullet.
Enter: Minnesota Viking’s defensive end, Jared Allen
Allen - currently the most famed defensive specialist to sport a mullet - has been quoted in the past saying, “It’s not a mullet. It’s a lifestyle.” For obvious reasons, this type of reasoning for strength has been humorously scoffed at over the years, but I can gosh darn guarantee you just as many people will <siiiiighhhhhhh> over the reason he finally decided to lop it off.
That’s right, this sacking machine trimmed to a fresh crew cut for (drum roll, please) the love of a woman… and her love of mullet free wedding photography. <siiiiighhhhhhh> See, I told you there’d be sighing :)
See, who said chivalry is dead? Jared Allen proves that even giant, QB scaring NFL players can have soft spots… especially if the right woman comes along. And who can’t get behind that? This will surely be a marriage made in mullet free heaven :)
And because mullets are so funny, here are some of Jared Allen’s mullet’s finer moments… check the razor stripes, my personal fave:
