In the annals of Minnesota sports and outrageous grooming, few athletes have ever topped the Vikings' Jared Allen and his mullet.

But Vikings.com has the scoop (along with the photo): Allen is now business in front ... and business in back! Say it ain't so:

In anticipation of his upcoming wedding, Vikings DE Jared Allen did what some fans may view as the unthinkable: his mullet is no more.

“The things men do for love,” Allen said.

It remains to be seen whether Allen will have time -- or permission, we suppose -- to re-grow his trademark party in the back. The NFL season just wouldn't be the same without it. He just looks so ... so ... normal. And ... not crazy. Are the Mullet Mullitia T-shirts now obsolete? So many questions. So much less hair.
