There are actually two Chris Kluwe-related news bits to put out there today, neither of which really has a whole lot to do with football. Welcome to the off-season, ladies and gentlemen.
The first tidbit is that Kluwe was on the Ellen program today to talk about various topics. The appearance on the show stemmed from the letter he wrote back in September in support of Baltimore Ravens' linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo and their views on same-sex marriage. Here's the video:
In addition to this, apparently everyone's favorite punter has a book coming out soon. . .a book which, apparently, will be titled Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies. According to the press release, the book is going to be "a collection of uncensored personal essays on topics ranging from faith to government, from losing in professional athletics to human rights."
Since this is the off-season, Kluwe doesn't have to be completely focused on punting. (I'm not sure there was any reason to think that he wasn't during the season, but the theory was out there.) Between these two things and his appearance on The Colbert Report a while back, it looks like he's enjoying his off-season, that's for sure.
EDIT: As nmatt71 pointed out in the comments, it doesn't look like all the fame is affecting Kluwe's punting after all.
