Athlete tweeter: Chris Kluwe

  • May 11, 2012 - 3:32 PM

Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is not only smarter and funnier than the average NFL player, he's smarter and funnier than the average Tweeter, period. The Vikings punter can excoriate politicians, the NFL lords of discipline, opponents and movies with panache, and his hashtags #leaveyoulaughing. Kluwe is a voracious reader and an avid painter of (geek alert) board game fighters, plus he's addicted to "World of Warcraft." Oh, and he's married with two young kids. So you'll get a lot of commentary on cookies and ice cream ... and not that much on, uh, football.
