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.
ChrisWarcraft is grinding quite nicely through this NFL season, and looks hopeful, early on, to pick up an expansion after finishing his first 16 quests. Here's what he's out to collect today in the Vikings' home lair against Tennessee.
Result: QUEST COMPLETE (Minnesota 20, Detroit 13. Kluwe: 6 punts, average 43.2 yards, long of 52, two inside the 20.)
ChrisWarcraft has completed three quests and failed one so far.
