WoW Celebrities: An Interview with NFL Punter Chris "Warcraft" Kluwe

Posted Wed, Jan 07, 2009 by Cody Bye

When it was discovered that an NFL player was thinking about changing his name to "Warcraft" to honor his favorite hobby, MMO industry columnists and football fans across the internet went into a posting frenzy. In a situation similar to that of future Hall of Fame pitcher, Curt Schilling, people seem to be fascinated that a professional athlete might enjoy a game like World of Warcraft. Rather than simply post the news, the Ten Ton Hammer staff opted to track down Chris "Warcraft" Kluwe and find out the truth about his name change and why he's known as such a video gamer.

On top of all the quests, Chris is a pretty avid raider, and his guild is now actively farming Sartharion. Chris explained that his schedule actually works out pretty well for all the WoW that he plays. "My practice pretty much consists of punting the ball for 45 minutes a day," he said. "I don't have to watch much film like the other guys on the team. When I go home I spend as much time with my family and my new baby girl as I can, then when she goes to sleep I get online to raid."

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
