Paul Allen, KFAN Radio personality and Vikings play-by-play announcer, tweeted Monday evening a photo of him and Mike “Doc” Emrick at the Minnesota Wild hockey game. PA, as he is known, happened to be sporting a Crookston Pirate football sweatshirt, which was sent to him last year before the Pirates played Perham in the playoffs. PA said if he is sent a nice hooded sweatshirt of a team he would wear it.
