We all witnessed the disappointing loss to the cheese turds last Sunday, and easily the most upsetting part of that game was Purple Jesus dropping 175 yards on their green and gold asses only to have that effort go wasted as the defense decided to trickle urine down their leg all game long, letting the Packers win. BOO!

The second most discouraging part though? Having to watch our favorite punter of the Minnesota Vikings, Chris Kluwe, chase down a return man when his coverage team let him down. What we got to see was another classic "Kluwe tackle" which we've already seen immortalized in statue form. There have been hints that this isn't the only statue in production, nor the Devin Hester returns the only instance when Kluwe got burned for a return (Reggie Bush, anyone?!), but it would make me happier if our punter didn't have to go through this anguish.

That anguish, however ... the anguish you can clearly see on his face when attempting to tackle a football player ... turns to unbridled intimidation when you get Kluwe in the right atmosphere:


This is a picture I've been holding on to that both terrifies me and inspires me. So primal, so sexy, such a large mouth. This is Kluwe in his element, and it's pretty cool. I believe this is one of many pictures taken from a recent show that his band, Tripping Icarus, did at the Fine Line Music Cafe in October. The pictures are from a guy called Joe Lemke, who has a whole collection of nice shots over on his website I suggest checking out, who managed to capture Kluwe in his natural habitat and comfort zone perfectly.

Yes, Joe was able to turn a face normally contorted in effort and anguish into a face filled with passion and talent. What magic technology can do this?!? Oh ... I guess it's just a camera. Either way, pretty cool.

Here are some more of Joe's better Kluwe pics, but again, go check them out on his site for all of the goodies (click here):
