    Chris Kluwe is going to publish his essays

    Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has been smart and outspoken all his life, but the rest of us only found out about it last year, when he wrote a letter to a Maryland legislator, taking him to task for his anti-gay-rights stance. I can't really quote from the letter here because this is a family blog on a family website that is part of a family newspaper, but most of you probably read the letter already, and if you didn't, you can read it here.
    Now, Kluwe will make a little money from his words, when Little, Brown publishes a collection of his essays (which they are calling in a press release "hilarious, pointed and touching") this summer.
    The title of the book--"Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies" --apparently comes from a Mother Jones article, which called Kluwe "a glimmering sparklepony of candor."
    According to the press release, the essays will touch on faith, government, professional sports, religion, social values, and human rights.
    On Twitter--Kluwe tweets at @ChrisWarcraft (he's a gamer)--Kluwe said the book will include "uncensored essays and stories about whatever I feel like."
    He adds, in a second tweet, "Topics of the book include, but are not limited to: sportsball, augmented reality, empathy, random wordplay, the Fermi Paradox, and Grus."
    (I only know what some of those things are.)
    You can also order a signed "Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies" bookplate from the publisher (limited availability). Details are here. The book is scheduled for June 25 publication

    So not loving a punter that is paid to punt the ball, but shanks balls I am suppose to love him just because he says stuff that people like. Also there was an interview one day when our special teams coach said he wish Kluwe would knock it off and that day Kluwe continued to talk. I can't stand the guy.

    Man, a special teams coach said that? I care a lot about what a special teams coach said.

    Anyways, Kluwe puts up good numbers.

    It's his coach... I guess we don't have to respect that at all.

    Do you watch his games or just look at numbers?
