I feel sorry for the employees of Jared Allen's Sports Arena and Grill. But not for Allen. And not for investors in the restaurant....

Jared Allen didn't own Jared Allen's. It was owned by a Q104 DJ. Allen, largely due to his brother's country fame, had a relationship with the station. Allen was paid for the use of his name and for making appearences. He did not own, nor have any say in the bars opening or closing.

Here I thought someone who owes his wage to advertisers might understand how these things work, but then again you do work for the Star.

Why not? Minnesota already has a Matty B's, Benchwarmer Bob's and several Joe Sensor's.
