Jack Buck, the legendary late baseball radio broadcaster, made famous the phrase, "I don't believe what I just saw!" after Kirk Gibson's improbable home run in the 1988 World Series.

We heard an eerily similar line again Sunday from the Minnesota Vikings radio crew -- "I can't believe what I just saw!" -- only the tone was not gleeful but one of utter disbelief.

Paul Allen, the energetic play-by-play man for the Vikings who wears his affinity for the team on his sleeve, offers an incredulous call of the Brett Favre interception in the closing seconds of regulation, with Minnesota on the fringe of field goal range, followed by a solid dose of anger.

Chiming in is color man Pete Bercich, a former Vikings linebacker and assistant coach.
