Routinely, people pitch to us various information and/or story ideas and/or videos and/or possible guests for PFT Live. Routinely, we pass.
But not today.
Our good friend (I consider him a friend . . . he very well may consider me a name that ends with “hole”) Jared Allen of the Vikings recently conducted his annual Night Ops golf tournament, which benefits his Homes for Wounded Warriors foundation.
The folks at The NOC have produced a short video with highlights of the event, featuring Allen and Johnny Knoxville and “Weeman” (the real Weeman, not Jay Glazer) among other things competing for the longest ride on the Slip ‘N’ Slide.
It’s worth a watch and a listen, if only for getting the benefit of Jared’s perspective and personality.
“I try to have fun,” he says. “Life’s short. When I’m dead and in the ground, I hope that people will say, ‘You know what? That guy lived life.’”
He definitely lived life at the Night Ops tourney. Have a look. And then, if so motivated break out the cashish that will help our wounded warriors live their own lives a little more easily.
