Noted Twin Cities radio and TV personality Paul Charchian went off on the Vikings after Sunday’s loss. His rant against the Vikes basically consisted of him saying the word “p**ed” over and over again while rattling off everything that went wrong. And then he called for coaches to be fired. Mock outrage? Check. Calling for heads? Check. Firing up fans by repeating every fan complaint in the kind of calculatedly blunt and simplistic language that some people mistake for refreshing plain-spokenness? Check.
If only Christian Ponder knew the Vikings playbook as well as Charchian knows the media hack playbook. The Vikes would be in the playoffs for sure! No doubt Charch has already FedExed a copy of his somewhat forced rant to ESPN’s First Take. Soon he’ll have his seat right there next to Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith. That man can pander like a boss. I give him total credit. He needs to work on his look though. Face for radio, am I right?
