Viking fans finally have something to crow about. NFL.com has released a short list of the greatest announcer calls in NFL history, and the #1 spot belongs to the voice of the Vikings Paul Allen. And guess which famous PA call gets the nod? Want a hint?
Yes indeed. PA’s call of the last-second Josh McCown-to-Nathan Poole play that knocked the Vikings plumb out of the playoffs in 2003 has been deemed the greatest announcer call ever. It even beat out Jack Fleming’s call of the legendary Immaculate Reception. Hear that Viking fans? We won something!
