Football is a role-playing game. That's how Chris Kluwe, the Minnesota Vikings punter and noted World of Warcraft and RPG fan, is approaching it. Each week in the NFL, ChrisWarcraft characterizes his upcoming game in terms of an MMO quest. We're going to chart his progress and see how fast he levels up.
After opening the first half 5-3, Chris Warcraft's guild got off to an 0-2 start in the season's second half. So it was back to grinding against low-level foes in PvP today.
