Jets video:

Paul Allen has a show on KFAN in Minnesota and during select game days #VoxInTheBox broadcasts from the timekeepers booth. He posts a $100 bill on the glass and if a player gets it through the hole they get the money. Mason Appleton became the third ever player (in nine years) to do it. He joins teammate Ben Chiarot and Anze Kopitar in achieving the feat. Maybe he should have been involved in the accuracy shooting at last week’s Skills Competition.
