kukukupo: If you can't talk to someone with an opposing view without being a condescending asshole, you probably didn't say anything worth hearing.


I'm a condescending asshole no matter what. Does that mean I can never have a valid opinion?

/ask mommy and daddy if you need help answering

Could someone post the picture of Chris Kluwe from the Vikings website? Thnx.

No. It just means most people probably don't listen to it or care.

It seems like you're just posting without reading the thread. Multiple people have already posted the picture you've requested. But hey, I'm here to help.

Got you to bite, though, didn't I? [lol-I-trol-u.jpg] etc.

Seriously, though, it wasn't Delegate Whatsisface that Kluwe was trying to reach. Instead, a few hundred thousand football fans and Deadspin readers who aren't offended by swearing and brashness--who in fact like it a lot--are now all 0.1% less homophobic and more gay-friendly.

In some cases, that's what's going to push them across the boundary from "might try to start some trouble with that queer over yonder" into "basically not going to go out of my way to be a dick simply because someone's gay." And that's a fine, fine thing.

Sorry, where was I? Oh, right, condescending asshole. So, you're welcome for the explanation. Now, I'm off to have sexual relations with your mother.

Seriously, can anyone post or link to Chris Kluwe's Viking profile pic? I heard it's awesome.

I like this part. Could do without the rest.

Your mother actually made a very similar comment recently...

Slight threadjack, but WTF is with the new Nike unis and the "1970s collars?"

I started following him on twitter about the time the stadium roof collapsed and they had to play outside on that college field and have loved him ever since. His WoW guild request (that was denied in the end because he would be busy on Sundays) is epic...this letter just makes me love him even more. Add me to the Kluwe jersey wearers. I love him.
 
2012-09-07 08:31:46 PM  
First off, good on Brendon Ayanbadejo (hope I spelled that right). I try not to say good things about members of the Baltimore Ravens, lol, but I have to respect him here. Well done, sir. :)

Secondly, Chris Kluwe is awesome. I stumbled across some of his stuff on Deadspin a while back and spent quite a bit of time laughing my ass off and/or being impressed. Dude is hilarious and intelligent, and if I had a list of NFL players I'd like to have a beer/hang out with, he'd be up there at the top. Love, love, love him. :D
 
2012-09-07 08:47:32 PM  
If this is a Kluwe love thread, I have to give a shout out to Mercenary Market, the game store he owns in Costa Mesa, CA.
 
2012-09-07 08:47:55 PM  
I've been a fan of Chris for a bit, even if I'm not a Minnesota fan he's an awesome dude.
 
2012-09-07 09:17:12 PM  
I only follow football b/c Carl from ATHF has commentary on the Giants. Now I have a new team to root for GO VIKINGS.

/That guy is farkin' hilarious

roc6783: kudayta: Dear Mr. Warcraft,

May all of your punts from this time forward be downed inside of the five yard line.

Sincerely,

kudayta

The Packers play them twice a year, you shut your whore mouth with that talk.


Dude, don't worry. Even if all of his punts were downed inside the five yard line, neither the Bears or Packers would have an issue beating the Vikings this year.

/Bears fan

Apparently this guy is such a huge nerd that he opened a store that sells Warhammer 40k stuff, Magic cards and tabletop RPG books. Link

I like the cut of his jib.
 
2012-09-07 11:34:15 PM  
I seriously hope that at the end of his career he gets picked up somewhere to write... I'm thinking Page 2 on ESPN. He'd be perfect for it.

Whomever said that punters are the least important position up above; no. They can make or break your defense on field position. You also have to be brave as hell, imagine 5 dudes running at you while you are completely defenseless kicking the ball away. Takes cojones, massive cojones.

ClavellBCMI: /the ViQueens still suck donkey balls as a team
//Chris Kluwe doesn't
///Kluwe for President 2016 (as a Republican, just to troll the Teabaggers)


Looks like you got the version of this story on the Politics Tab redlit. Are you happy with yourself?
 
2012-09-08 12:11:28 AM  
Its almost impossible to not be a fan of him.
 
2012-09-08 01:32:04 AM  

TsarTom: so Chris Kluwe's the only reason to be a Vikings fan this year.
Oh well. I'll take what I can get.

Go Vikes.


Kluwe's letter made a lot of us Vikings fans. I can't help but to pull for a team with a punter that badass.

Greatest thing written since the Magna Carta.

From the "about the staff" portion of their website:

Serious punter is serious.

Lifetime GB Packers fan. The phrase "narcissistic fromunda stain" has achieved the impossible with me. There is now a MN Viking that I will cheer for.

Beyond epic.

phimuskapsi: I seriously hope that at the end of his career he gets picked up somewhere to write... I'm thinking Page 2 on ESPN. He'd be perfect for it.




Personally, I hope he does something better than getting a job writing for a non-longer existent entity, but each to their own, I suppose.

Good on Kluwe.

Ha, the clean version is just as good. "Unfortunately phallic hedge sculpture" will now be the name of my next band.

It's especially scathing that this kind of rebuke came from a professional football player. Burns was a preacher, but if there's one thing most knuckle-draggers hold equal with their religion, it's sports.
 
2012-09-08 08:28:06 AM  
Per Mr. Kluwe's blog:

The swearing is there for a reason. What Emmett C. Burns Jr. wrote, what I responded to, was far more disgusting and foul minded than any simple scatological reference or genital mashup. His words degrade the very essence of the English language with their barely hidden venom and intolerant hate; drag it screaming into the muck of iniquity by wrapping a mantle of seeming reasonableness around corruption and control; masquerade as discourse while screaming their very lie to any Heaven you care to name - I could go on.

Please. Do.
 
2012-09-08 08:49:13 AM  
This is so farking cool to read...a velvet-lined slapdown..

I had to deal with similar crap 20 years ago with interracial relationships with my now wife of 17 years. Emmitt, why do you see fit to impose your stupid ass shiat in someone elses bedroom? I made the mistake in not going nuts on stupid motherfarkers like you a long time ago...

Please, lets discuss your intolerance further with my white boy ass.

I starting to go gay for this guy. I wonder if he would read me poetry?
 
2012-09-08 11:30:48 AM  
I've found that people speaking vehemently against an issue are doing so because of inner conflict, specific to that very issue. Anything you'd like to talk about, Mr. Burns?

I need to contact that store, you know for business purposes.

I'm calling "Disappointed Lemur Face" for mine. :P

/the more I hear/see/read from this guy, the more I like him. Major crush developing...
//yes I know he's married
 
2012-09-09 05:15:44 AM  
Ok - That made me choose to turn gay, just so I can gay marry Chris Kluwe.

Here is the clean version: Link
