When the Vikings lose, Paul Allen sounds near-suicidal. When they win? It's as though he's mainlining purple dopamine laced with uppers. KFAN's longtime 9-to-noon radio ace is the verbose avatar for the collective heart of Minnesota sports fans. Allen, an unabashed Vikes booster, invites listeners onto his "Therapeutic Davenport of Love" to wallow or rejoice, the results of which feel more like X's & O's-infused therapy sessions than talk radio. The game-day voice of the Vikes has surplus swagger, orchestrating his "Love Covenant" like a blue-eyed soul preacher with a deathly aversion to ending sentences with prepositions. When the geyser of true believer emotion runs out of joy and/or despair, Allen's program dovetails beautifully into the benign indifference of talker Dan "Common Man" Cole's idiosyncratic pro-grum. It's the best one-two combo since Carter and Moss.
