Yahoo! Sports had a new interview with Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, which was posted yesterday. I highly recommend you go over there, read it first, and then come back here to finish this post, but just in case you need an enticing paragraph to convince you to make a single click while on your computer, here you go:
- "His mother, a doctor driven by fabulous degrees and academic accomplishment, saw great things for her oldest son. She imagined a mind humming with all the dazzling thoughts of the truly gifted. She saw awards and achievement and a planet grateful for his brain. She was sure he would want these things too, which is why she now sighs into the phone. “He could have found a cure for cancer,” Sandy Kluwe says, her voice rising then stopping abruptly with the tone of a mother resigned. “And he’s not,” she adds."
Uh, Chris Kluwe is awesome. My favorite part is he kind of tricked his wife into marrying him before she fully understood his video game lifestyle. Hahaha, classic move Kluwe!
To sum things up, here were my reactions upon reading this article from start to finish, presented to you in GIF form:
That is all. Nice work, punter!

Near the top of the 17-paragraph screed Kluwe sent to Deadspin in response to Jackson was the following passage: “Let’s be honest here. Yes, I am a punter. Yes, I don’t run routes, or zone block, or cover receivers. Apparently, though, neither did you, which is the only explanation for your total lack of statistics.”
That's awesome.. I LMAO pretty hard..
Story published on a Tuesday, just in time for Warcraft Wednesdays. Someone knows.
I don't know why Mama Kluwe is so disheartened. He's still young, he'll probably discover the cure for cancer in his sleep one night. Medical degree be damned!
I wouldn't be surprised after his retirement if we find out they had to use a special football for him all these years because his leg would have destroyed a normal one.
such a beauty... has a shirt been sent to him yet? I wish we could get him on this site commenting with us.
