To the people that call PA a 'homer'.. Define 'homer' for me.
Just because he is entheusiastic about the BRETT FAVREs and gets excited does NOT mean he's a homer.. No matter how much a fan from another team says so.
As it is, I have the radio commentary on while I watch a game on television. I guess I am somewhat of a homer.

Paul Allen is a huge homer. Anyone who sees otherwise is flat out wrong. That said, being a homer is pretty much a prerequisite for doing radio play by play in a local market, whether it be Minneapolis or New York. The guy who does the yankees does that "theeeeeeeeeeeeee yankeeeees wiiiiin" whenever they win a game. It's radio where the sound tells the story and you have to make it exciting with your voice. On TV, a lot of times you can say nothing and let the visuals and the crowd carry you.
I like PA's calls for radio. He can make a 5 yard run sound exciting. I wouldn't call him "the best in the business" by any means.. a lot of national radio hosts think he's a total joke because of how "hyped" up he gets on every single call but I like him for what he does and because I love the Vikings. Professionalism? A little lacking within the calls but again, what do you want him to do?
