The lights are on
Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has shanked kicks in the NFL for six seasons. Vikings fans are well aware of who Kluwe is, and have not held back in voicing their opinions of him. One fan on twitter says "Kris (sic) Kluwe is an awful punter. I truly hate him. Words fail to express just how much I really hate this mother f----r." Another fan says "I could punt better than that inside the 50. Kluwe sucks."
Vikings fans say as much about Kluwe as they do Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre's penis. Oddly, as "popular" as he is, he has never been featured on an NFL trading card. Late last night, Kluwe revealed to his 1,000-plus twitter followers that his first trading card appearance comes courtesy of World of WarCraft. The card of note doesn't feature Kluwe, but his World of WarCraft character Loate Grimtusk. If you're itching to add Kluwe to your deck, you'll find this card in the Icecrown expansion.
If you google search Kluwe's card, you'll find it selling at various retailers for 25 cents.
[Disclosure: Chris Kluwe is the bass player in Andrew Reiner's band Tripping Icarus. He is also co-creator of "Project Grendel," another venture with Reiner.]

I hate that guy.
Isnt he one of the best Guitar Hero players in the world? Anywho, I still dont understand any hate for Kluwe, dudes got a leg on him.
Interesting little tid-bit of info there. Surprising that he hasn't ever had an NFL trading card of himself.
lol He went to Los Alimetos HS....Right around the corner from where I live
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA what a sick joke.... If its true its even funnier! LMAO
Chris "Warcraft" Kluwe is my favorite Viking player. Thanks to 93x banter.
Isn't he one of the best Guitar hero players?
I've always found him to be a good punter...
That's kind of cool.
Is it true? Seriously, Reiner plays with Chris Kluwe? I feel like a real idiot right now, cause I can't tell if we're getting our legs pulled or if this is actually true....
WoW fan: What does 'NFL' stand for?

A: Two great tastes that taste great together.
I'm gonna paint a chris kluwe NFL card, with him wearing WoW armor
Well, I think he should be happy about his WoW card. Typically, kickers and punters don't get the respect they richly deserve.
shanked kicks? I see you're getting your shots in where you can as well. Someone's a little butt-hurt about the Vikings
