Chris Kluwe is hilarious

Full interview with the Pioneer Press here.

I'm not going to post the full article, but there are certainly some gems.



BS: What did you think of the Vikings' draft?

CK: I was playing video games the entire time.

BS: Seriously?

CK: I got updates through Twitter. People told me who was drafted. It looks like we got a quarterback. Hopefully, he'll be pretty good.


He also expressed a desire never to have to be on the field (correctly telling us that a good QB makes a punter useless), compared the Words With Friends skills of his team mates, and his opinion of holding down the fort in California.

He also wrote something, which for the most part, I agree with in regards to the lockout:


BS: As we've discussed, you're a bright fellow. How would you end the lockout?

CK: Well, both sides need to compromise. It's obvious, as players, we got a pretty good deal the last time. As players, we have to be reasonable about it. Football is a great thing. Rather than try and squeeze every drop out of the owners that we can, we need to make sure it's equitable for everyone. The owners need to open the books. I don't think they'll do it. Each team has something to hide. The owners can't just ask for money upfront. They have to prove they need it. We're willing to share this huge jackpot, but at the same time we're not going to take your word that you need a billion dollars. It's just going to come down to the owners bringing down the extra amount of money they want if they're not going to show us what they're making. The lockout really hurts a team like ours. Coach (Leslie) Frazier, who's in his first year, can really use those extra minicamps (new coaches get) so everyone knows what he wants to get done.


I love following this guy's twitter. Y'all should follow suit (I can understand why some people might be offended when he tweeted about the field conditions at TCF, but for the most part, it's a good ride).

He also tweeted that he doesn't watch the playoffs, because he doesn't like watching people do their job, he just loves doing his job well.

Also, I think that our glorious leadership (in this case, Chris Gates) has played some Rift with this fellow. Hoorah!
