Paul Allen is a sports commentator who currently calls play-by-play for the Minnesota Vikings on KFAN. He is the voice of the Minnesota Vikings Radio Network and Canterbury Park. Allen previously called horse races at different locations throughout the United States until he came to Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota in 1995.[1] Allen was both criticized and praised by Viking fans for "ripping" into Brett Favre after he threw an interception in the 2009 NFC Championship game that ultimately kept them out of the Super Bowl.[2][3]
