Probably, only one guy is looking at losing his job.  At least this week.

A new entry in the Paul Allen hall of fame.

How he hasn't dropped dead live on air is a mystery to me.

As a Packers Fan (despite s/n) the Paul Allen call yesterday soothed my soul. I haven't heard him sound that defeated in awhile.

Can't really fault the radio guys for expecting a kicker to make a 37-yard FG. 

Imaging the confused reaction of the listeners made me laugh a bit.

Same. Viking fan tooling around in his car, big loud call on the radio ... and it's wrong. I think I would be twice as pissed off as I would just by the outcome of the game.

Just noticed my phone made that "imaging", not "imagining" thank you for the quiet correction!

Radio sports is such a huge mess of screaming announcers and roaring fans, I can't follow it anyway.

Why did Paul Allen even ponder making that call?  I mean you can wait to see the signal and make the correct call!  This is not Detroit, man, this is week two!!!

When I saw the headline I thought it was referring to Talib on the network broadcast.  Ugh, he was awful (they can't "reciprocate" game speed in practice?).

Thus long suffering Viking fans continue to suffer.

I love how the tweet syncs up so that he starts screaming "GOOD" just as the officials signal "nope".  I don't know if the timing was that perfect live, but I want to believe it.
