Ever wonder what Paul Allen would say if the Vikings win the Super Bowl. He tells us in this entertaining and informative chat.

Many of his calls live on in soundbites across the internet. He discusses his most memorable and heartbreaking moment as a Vikings broadcaster (it's the same game), his first viral moment and how he juggles being the voice of the Vikings, doing a three hour show on KFAN and calling the races at Canterbury Park.

He has spent 35 years with the LA Kings and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015 becoming the third Kings broadcaster to earn the distinctive honor.

He discusses the influence his father had on him in the business, how a minor league hockey coach helped him get the job with the Kings, what it was like when the Kings won the Cup, if he ever got to drink out of it and what it's like being among the pantheon of HOF LA broadcasters.
When you have a chance to sit down with a broadcaster that has called nearly every potential sport you jump at the opportunity.
