Chris Kluwe pondering changing his name to show love of World of Warcraft
December 31st

Professional football player Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings, recently raised his love for World of Warcraft on his weekly radio program. So much so, he floated the idea of changing his name to Chris “World of Warcraft” Kluwe. In fact, he adds, people have come to start referring to him as Christ “Warcraft” Kluwe, a nickname I personally think sounds a hell of a lot tougher. Kluwe plays a troll roge on the US Kil’jaeden server, though I’m not sure if it’s a male or a female. Kluwe’s remarks from his recent show:

“I think more people like to hear me talk about playing video games than football,” said Kluwe, an expert at many video games. “I’ve played video games since I was 4 years old. I play them a lot more than I kick a football. I kick the ball about 45 minutes a day. I play video games about five or six hours a day. But that’s OK. I don’t watch TV.”

“Back when [Bengals receiver] Chad Johnson changed his name to Ocho Cinco, I told the guys at 93X that I was going to change my name to Chris ‘World of Warcraft,’ ” Kluwe said. “They said that’s too long. So they started calling me Chris ‘Warcraft.’ I could make a lot of money if I changed my name to that.”
