Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen isn't a fan of Detroit and New Orleans.
No, we're not talking about the Lions and Saints, per se - but the actual cities themselves.
"I don't like going to Detroit," the 29-year-old Allen told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I’ll be honest. It’s gloomy, it sucks. Everything is brown and then there is snow on the ground. There’s like brownstones everywhere and I’m like, 'Awesome.' I don’t know, I couldn’t do it. If I had to live in Detroit, I think I’d just drown myself in the river that was across the way.

New Orleans looks like I’m driving through a third-world country. Every time I get off the plane, I’m like, ‘Oh, flak jacket.’ I’m trying to get down. I’m like, ‘Ah, crap, I can’t carry my gun here. This sucks.'"
