KFAN’s Paul Allen was very excited to let me know that he’s become a nonsmoker.

The voice of the Vikings finally heard the shaming he deserved from his daughter. “It was somewhere in March my 11-year-old daughter gave me a 3½-page letter calling me a fraud,” Allen told me at KFAN’s State Fair booth Thursday. “With me being the undertaker I would tell them [his two children] I was the last person to ever let them down. She said you’re not the undertaker, ’cause all you do is let us down. So I quit two days later. A far cry from when you [videotaped me] having a cigarette, and I was embarrassed and didn’t want to talk about it! Now I’m willing to look into the camera and say I smell so good I could even take a hug from C.J.”

In addition to the hugging and kissing, my startribune.com/video of PA includes footage of WCCO-TV’s Lauren Casey that’ll be of interest to Ring Watchers, and a clip of Jamie Yuccas doing something she’ll no doubt explain via Twitter.

 

C.J. can be reached at cj@startribune.com and seen on FOX 9’s “Buzz.” E-mailers, please state a subject; “Hello” does not count. Attachments are not opened.
