Chris Kluwe of the Vikings (@ChrisWarcraft on Twitter) is an entertaining guy. He’s a punter by day, a musician by night, and apparently a gamer at all other points in between.
Today, Kluwe took to Reddit to do an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session. Naturally, I dropped what I was doing – procrastinating by browsing Reddit – as soon as I saw it so that I could perform the much-needed public service of sifting through all of Kluwe’s answers to find the most compelling ones.
Here is entire Kluwe AMA if you want to read it for yourself, which I recommend. (It should be obvious, but for those new of you to the Reddit experience, Kluwe’s responses are from the account “Loate” that has the conspicuous Verified Account notation and shading.)
Below are a few of my favorite exchanges between Kluwe and his fellow Redditors.
Might as well start out with the funniest, which is about – who else? – Skip Bayless:
Someone, of course, asked Kluwe about Tebow:
And here is Kluwe on the great Devin Hester, every punter’s worst nightmare, which I found entertaining. Also, nice setup by the questioner, who is not actually Devin Hester, for the record:
Kluwe on why he hates Chicago:
Kluwe on the nicest football player he knows:
And more on Peterson, as well as the Vikings’ young QB Christian Ponder:
Kluwe also had some interesting things to say about Randy Moss and his former coach, Brad Childress:
On locker room pranks:
On the hardest aspect of punting:
And finally, on the one rule change he’d make in the NFL:
Nope, you definitely can’t.
As the folks might say on Reddit, well done Good Guy Chris.
