The early Christmas presents keep on coming for the ladies this year, especially if you're a Minnesota Vikings fan. Most recently, Jared Allen dressed as Santa Claus to attend a players' Christmas party. The difference between this outfit and the Santa outfit John Sullivan worse earlier this week is that this one is TIGHT. And I don't just mean across his chest, but, like ... His pants ... They are ... Is that paint? Well, his Santa pants are pretty tight.
The best part? It doesn't look like this was even a costume party.
The photos come courtesy of Vikings wide receiver Michael Jenkins and backup quarterback Joe Webb. Both of those players attended the party in the usual Ugly Christmas Sweater fare. Joe Webb probably did it best, because he spiced up his sweater with a nice pair of shiny silver pants. Too flashy or just right? I think you know the answer to that.
Also in attendance was Larry Dean, who I kind of feel is like the Cappadonna of this Vikings team. I totally forgot he was even around, but here he is making faces and stuff.
Either way, Jared Allen clearly wins the day. To have the .... GUTS ... to show up in public in such an outfit is impressive. It seems to be a very Jared Allen type of thing to do, and because of it, he walked home with the award for best outfit. WELL DESERVED!
