I love video games. But not so much that I'd consider changing my name over them. However, Chris Kluwe from the Minnesota Vikings wants to ensure he'll have the highest selling NFL jersey.

Chris Kluwe does two things really well: Punting footballs and playing video games. Kluwe is known for being an avid gamer, so much so that he discusses them on his very own radio show on Minnesota's 93X station. During the season, Kluwe talked about the idea of changing his last name to something that would certainly make any Blizzard fan feel jealous.

Quote:
"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."


It's hard to tell if he's being facetious or not. But considering how much WoW playing he reportedly does, this is something that needs to be taken seriously.

It should also be pointed out that Kluwe recently signed a contract extension through 2013 that will pay him 8.3 million dollars. Not bad for someone whose job it is to kick a ball around for 2 hours once a week. So yeah, Chris, you don't need anymore money. Your life is just fine.

As for his radio show, Kluwe said his listeners would actually prefer if he'd talk less about football and more about video games.

Quote:
"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."


If you wanted to change your last name to any video game title, what would it be? If I were forced to, I would pick Jim 'God Hand.'


He cant be serious...This is dumber than Ocho Cinco.

I can't believe that he seriously meant this. It doesn't make any sense. Why on earth would you want to call yourself Chris Warcraft....

I like that a public figure admits to gaming alot though. Ofcourse addictions are wrong, but, imo, there's nothing wrong with gaming, while you'll often be looked upon like some nerdy kid... pretty appropriate that it's a punter doing this stuff though. The outcasts of the football team, as alot of people seem to see them.

That would be one problem for me though, changing my last name to my favorite game, Detlev (Day Of The) Tentacle.

I agree. I think as an athlete its better to be at home playing your video games rather than out at clubs...shooting yourself in the foot 0.0

It's his last name.. Let him do it.

Sign me up first on the list in line to buy his new jersey if he does, though. SRSSLY. A purple, 'Warcraft' number 5 jersey? That's the coolest jersey I've ever heard...

I'm even tempted to try to customize one at NFLshop.com. Just to see if they'll let me.

Personally, I would just like it as a nickname. I'm just too prideful of my last name (obviously, it's my football handle online.. lol)

There's something about Jeff Bridges' shaking hips that disturbs me into a strange form of hypnotic trance every time I see it in Firefox.

In Chrome it's more of a slow, seductive motion that is eerily feminine.

Anything to draw a little headline.. what next a cruise. :lol:
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Awesome. I'm sure more famous people and athletes game a lot more than they admit. It's about time the perception of video games = sniveling nerd got thrown out. Albeit, he is a punter.

My name? Joe Counter-Strike. Hmm....maybe Joe Counter or Joe Strike.
