While we now know that the Mayans were full of crap in terms of the world ending, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen wasn’t going to take any chances. Allen recently geared up for the end of days, apparently forgetting that the world ending would render all of his preparations moot. Nevertheless, Allen stocked up on snacks, and informed ESPN’s Kenny Mayne that he’d be ready if the Mayans really were on to something. Allen also isn’t thrilled with the Mayans’ calendar, which stops at Dec. 21, 2012, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. A classic photoshoot later, the calendar lives on, and the world is still intact. Check out Allen’s goofy bit in the video below. Photo of the Day The Jets’ season in a nutshell. Quote of the Day I told you the happiest day of my life was July 1, 1989? Today was No. 2. –Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, whose return to the team on Monday falls just short of his wedding day on the happiness scale Tweet of the Day Can’t stress this enough. Thinking of all the men and women currently serving in the military and their families this holiday season. Thank you ALL for all you do! — Emily (@OffSeids) December 24, 2012 Video of the Day All I want for Christmas is hockey.
