Video: Vikings star Jared Allen prepares for the end of the world
Well, it turns out the Mayans were wrong. The end of the world as we know it didn't occur on Dec. 21, 2012 like they thought. However, some folks prepared for doomsday just in case. One of those folks was Minnesota Vikings star Jared Allen.
Watch as Allen teams up with ESPN's Kenny Maybe to bring us a behind-the-scenes look at what Allen did to get ready. The Pro Bowler built himself a makeshift communication device, made sure he was stocked full of necessary food items, and even volunteered for a photo shoot to help create a 2013 calendar since the Mayans were too lazy to make one.
Fortunately, the whole ordeal turned out to be a huge myth. And now America can continue to watch the NFL on Sundays. Hallelujah.
