Here Are Some Words . . .

Today's paper featured a story about Chris Kluwe, the punter for the Minnesota Vikings, who is now blogging for the paper.  Kluwe is a real piece of work.  He's already well-known for his Tweets (Chris Warcraft on Twitter), for being a video game afficionado, serving as bass guitarist for his band Tripping Icarus, and now this blog, which you can read here in full...

Call it "fair play" that we give some time to the Viking side of the river and their two fans after posting the story about Jim Reid's visit to Lambeau, that paean to the Green Bay Packers.  (By the way, has anyone ever visited the Vikings Hall of Fame???  Oh, yeah, they don't have one.)

Anyway, the first paragraph in his first post is - How exactly are you supposed to start out a brand new blog/journal/random-blathering piece? It’s always vexed me. Should I just dive right in? “Hi, I’m Chris Kluwe, the punter for the Vikings. HERE ARE SOME WORDS, READ THEM.”

Personally, I can relate to that, and so can many of you who have posted or attempted to post on this blog, I am sure.  Kluwe will blunder forward, and if you've read anything about him you know what he posts will be entertaining, thoughtful, satirical, and insightful.  We should all do the same.

The door is open - come on in and drop some words.  And if I put some up, please read them!  Even if they are random-blathering.
